Swept up and tossed aside by the Rangers’ power-hitting lineup, the Mariners come home demoralized but not yet deceased. They are three games behind Texas in the AL West and half a game behind Houston for the third Wild Card spot. This final homestand — two series, two Texas teams, two starts each for the rotation’s top two — will decide everything. What more is there to say? I’ll be watching for Julio’s bat to heat up and for a final hot week to cap off the best season of J.P. Crawford’s career so far.
