It all came down to the long ball. On March 28th, 2019, opening day of the 2019 MLB season the Seattle Mariners played the defending World Series Champions, Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox are a powerhouse team in the AL East, while the Mariners are starting up a rebuilding season. Read More to see What Happened.

When I walked up to newly named T-Mobile Park, I was overwhelmed. The new sign for T-Mobile Park is bright pink, but as everyone calls it, magenta. When I was just standing in line, there were many Mariners fans, as well as Red Sox nation. The lines to get into the sold-out ballpark were on the brink of going into the streets. Now I was not there in time to see pre-game festivities, but you could tell that everyone was hyped for the much-anticipated new season.

The Red Sox were able to get the bats going early when J.D Martinez drove in an early run in the top of the first. They weren’t done. In the second they added on another when Andrew Benintendi hit a sac-fly to make it 2-0 Red Sox. The M’s did not take this lightly and showed the fans at T-Mobile Park what kind of team they really are. The M’s put on a show in the second and third by getting seven runs off Chris Sale. This included a career day for Tim Beckham when he hit two home runs in two innings. Home runs were also hit by Edwin Encarnacion, Ryon Healy, and Domingo Santana. All these home runs went for a combined seven runs. If those home runs weren’t hit, it’s would have been a tie ballgame. After that, the Red Sox were never able to recover, and the M’s just kept on going. The Sox made a couple of attempts by scoring two in the sixth, but that was all they could come up with. While the M’s tacked on two more in both the 6th and the 7th.

It was a 12-4 final and Red Sox look to bounce back over the weekend while the Mariners look to keep it going! What will happen? Looking forward to an exciting 2019 season for all teams.
