MLB wrap: Red-hot Mariners win again, but challenge looms against Yankees, Red Sox

What the Mariners have done in the past month is remarkable, but the schedule they face in the next 10 days could break even the best team. First, let's appreciate everything that has gone right lately. Right fielder Mitch Haniger hit a two-run walk-off home run Wednesday to give Seattle an 8-6 victory and a sweep of the division rival Angels. The Mariners have now won four in a row and are a season-high 20 games over .500 (44-24). If you're going to hit a walk-off home run, might as well crush it, as Haniger did. Since June 14 the Mariners are 22-7. They have the third-best record in baseball and are now on pace to win 105 games. No wonder Mariners fans can smell the end of Seattle's 16-season
