The Mariners won for the 10th time in 11 games beating the Oakland Athletics 4-2 on Wednesday night, keeping the pressure on their fellow competitors for the two wild-card spots in the AL.
Seattle stayed a half-game behind Boston for the second wild-card slot and is 1½ games behind New York for the top spot, trying to end a 20-year drought since last reaching the postseason.
The Mariners have an off-day on Thursday before starting their final series of the regular season at home against the Los Angeles Angles.
"Believe" has become Seattle’s rallying call, and the Mariners are charging into the final weekend of the regular season with plenty of belief and right in the thick of the AL wild-card race.
"This is fun. This is the way it’s baseball supposed to be at this time of year and we still got a lot of big, big games ahead of us," Seattle manager Scott Servais said.
Seattle opens its final series on Friday night against the Angels.
