Seattle Mariners: 6 Keys to Winning Homestand vs. Rangers and Angels

With a win today in Denver, the Mariners finished their 10-game road trip with a record of 4-6. 

Sure, the Mariners handled a nearly 40-year-old Andy Pettitte and swept through the Rockies, but let’s not forget they lost by four runs or more at least five times and saw a potential win against Cleveland turn into a loss in extra innings.

On the bright side, the Mariners did manage to save face on the final leg of their journey. Winning the series in Colorado helped salvage the trip, as their once-dormant bats came to life with an offensive explosion over the weekend. 

Before heading out on this trip, I outlined a few key points the M’s needed to follow in order to have a successful trip. By the end, they managed to pull through on a few, but it came down to the wire in some cases. 

Moving forward, in order for the Mariners to work their way back to .500, here are six keys they will need to follow when the Rangers and Angels come to town over the course of the this week.
