In the second American League Wild Card Series game of Saturday, the Seattle Mariners eliminated the Toronto Blue Jays in shocking fashion. The Mariners prevailed by a score of 10-9 in Game 2 and thus swept the best-of-three series. Seattle trailed by a score of 8-1 at one point, but thanks in large measure to a two-part rally in the sixth and eighth innings the Mariners were able to stun the Blue Jays and the Rogers Centre crowd and end their 2022 season.
JP Crawford hit a game-tying double in the eighth inning, blooping a ball to center field with the bases loaded. Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette and center fielder George Springer collided on the play, and Springer was forced to leave the game. Adam Frazier hit the game-winning double in the ninth.
