CLEVELAND – Tom Wilhelmsen pretty much summed up the thoughts of the Seattle Mariners and their fans in minutes after yet another stunning walk-off loss to the Cleveland Indians.
“We’re just happy to be leaving Cleveland,” he said flatly. “We are ready to leave this place.”
After four days and four losses – three coming on the final swing of the bat – the Mariners have taken enough punches to the gut in this city to last 10 seasons.
Monday’s 10-8 loss in 10 innings might have been the most painful.
