Monday, October 4th, 2021
Seattle Mariners fans are walking a little prouder today after their team officially clinched the American League West.
“There’s no reason to believe we can’t win it all,” starting pitcher Danny Hultzen said bluntly. “Whether or not we’re favorites, we can definitely do what it takes to bring the World Series home to Seattle.”
The division crown is the 3rd for the Mariners. The club will be looking for its 2nd World Series victory.
Team manager Joe Inglett said “preparation and focus” will be key to bring home the championship.
Jason Castro, who chipped in for Seattle with a run-scoring single in the bottom of the tenth said this about the team’s win:
“I like the grit of this ballclub,” Castro said.
