5 Best Seattle Mariners Moments During the 2020 Season
Kyle Lewis’ Moonshot on Seattle Mariners Opening Day
To say the least, Kyle Lewis got off to a rocking start in 2020. In his first at bat of the 2020 regular season, Kyle Lewis hit a towering home run.
Lewis stepped into the batter’s box to lead off the top of the second inning against the Houston Astros. The season had been delayed so fans were eager to watch the young Seattle Mariners team play, and Lewis answered their calls.
Future Hall of Famer Justin Verlander threw a mistake and Lewis made him pay. Kyle got a meaty fastball at the top of the inside corner and he got his hands inside it and destroyed the baseball.
I remember watching the game on the couch, and I just could not believe it. I mean he did it against Justin Verlander, in his first at bat.
The set the tone for Kyle Lewis’ 2020 season and put many people around the league on notice. I ranked this as one of Kyle Lewis’ most important moments in his AL Rookie of the Year campaign as well.
Now onto No. 3.
