The Mariners just wrapped up their second season of the year, and their first homestand as well. Although it started off well, things quickly went downhill once Triston McKenzie got off the mound in the first game. It really seemed like the Mariners were going to start turning it around on offense after a rough series against the Red Sox, as they started taking pitches and working at-bats.

Instead, once McKenzie came out of the game, the Mariners forgot how to hit. Over the next 2.5 games, they seemed incapable of scoring runs, putting together good at-bats, or doing anything worthwhile at the plate. In fact, they would score just two runs in the next 22.1 innings. That's embarrassing no matter who you are facing.

Let's dive a little bit deeper into the series to take a look at what went well for the Mariners, and what went wrong. Believe me, it was a lot easier to find what went wrong for the Mariners than what went right for the Mariners. Let's get into it to see what happened and the main reasons for the Mariners in their 1-2 series loss to the Guardians.
