The Houston Astros take advantage of the wild Seattle Mariners

25 May

Tonight we are getting our groove on as we hop into the wayback and set it for 1979. It was a time when disco music still ruled, we were having a dyn-o-mite time with Jimmy Walker, Robin Williams had us watching the skies for flying eggs sent from the planet ‘Ork’ and the Seattle Mariners were in their third season. When we arrive and walk into Safeco (or for tonight the Kingdom) we will see the Seattle Mariners in their marine blue uniforms with the trident ‘m’ that was retired over two decades ago. If tonights’ starting pitcher Brandon Mauer was reading this he would wonder what I was refering to since he wasn’t born until 1990.
In sticking with the far out theme of tonight Brandon Mauer will get his groove on as he tries to extend the Mariners winning streak to 4 games. Opposing the Mariners will be Houston Astro pitcher Brett Oberholtzer.
