The Seattle Mariners, much like the Baltimore Orioles, are on a crazy hot streak.
With their 6-5 win last night in their series opener against the Texas Rangers, the Mariners ran their winning streak up to 11 games as they improved their record to 48-42.
In fact, with their latest win, the Mariners are approaching a franchise record that was set in June of 2001, during their 116-win campaign.
That year, they went on a 15-game winning streak.
With their streak at 11, they’re just four wins shy of tying that mark and five of breaking it.
MLB Network tweeted a photo of a graphic listing the longest Mariners win streaks over the years.
ELEVEN WINS IN A ROW!

Started From The Bottom
This is an insane run.
It’s also worth noting that during this stretch, the Mariners have gone from five games out of a playoff spot to holding the second Wild Card spot in the American League.
Sure, they still may be far back of the Houston Astros in the AL West division, but after a terrible start to the season, Seattle is rolling again and is in playoff position.
It was not a pretty start for these Mariners, but since then, they have found themselves right back in the thick of the race.
That goes to show why you can never count a team out.
This is a very dangerous team with World Series aspirations that are on full display with their recent hot streak.
They’ll have Ray on the mound tonight in Texas as they look to bump their streak up to 12 games.NEXT: MLB Insider Shares A List Of Mariners Firsts
