Mariners (plus 120) at Washington.
This game doesn't exactly feature elite teams but since when does that matter when it comes to gambling and the Bad Beat!?!?!?
Seattle scored a pair in the first against Livan Hernandez and cruised to the 5-0 lead by the fifth inning. The advantage was 5-1 all the way into the bottom of the ninth, which obviously should have been more than enough for the Mariner victory.
If you know me by now, you obviously you know that wouldn't be the case. If it was, then you wouldn't be reading this.
Squandering a four-run lead in the final frame of the game is terrible enough to begin with but then when you factor in how it went down here, yuck.
Jayson Werth led off the ninth and reached thanks to a Justin Smoak fielding error. After a walk to Roger Bernadina, Brandon League elicited a double play off of the bat of Ryan Zimmerman so now there were two outs and one on so it's pretty much academic who was going to win the game with just one out remaining, right? Wrong!
Jerry Hairston, Jr. singled allowing Werth to score and made it a 5-2 ballgame. Still not really all that big of a deal, I mean 5-2 with just one out to go.
Mike Morse than reached on an infield single bringing the tying run to the plate in the form of Danny Espinosa who singled to bring in a third run. Now it's a 5-3 game with two on for little known Wilson Ramos. And wouldn't you know it, bang, a three-run jack to left capping off the five-run ninth and the Nationals somehow walk off with the ridiculous 6-5 comeback victory.
If you had the M's just quit, just freakin' quit!
