Best Mariners' Moment: Jorge Polanco and Luis Urías double up debut dongs

In the second game of the series, the Mariners pulled off a close 5-3 win. The two runs that ultimately separated the teams came from late solo home runs which were the first for these two new Mariners. While Urías has been hitting well thus far as discussed earlier, Polanco has struggled in his first 41 plate appearances. He was finally able to show off his power against a Bryse Wilson curveball that he took 418 feet to right field. An inning later, Urías would also hit his first.

As of now, Polanco seems to be another victim of the Seattle second-base curse that also caused immediate regression in Kolten Wong as soon as he signed with the team. Personally, I'm still hopeful that he can make a comeback but with his current plate discipline numbers, adjustments are going to have to be made if he wants to remain competitive.
