Last night, the Seattle Mariners were no-hit after a phenomenal performance from Detroit Tigers righty Spencer Turnbull. No team ever wants to be on the wrong side of a no-hitter, however, it gets worse for Seattle fans. This is the second time in the past two weeks that Seattle's offense has been no-hit.

On May 5, John Means of the Baltimore Orioles also no-hit the Mariners offense, which seems to be facing a troubling trend. In fact, this second no-hitter made history as the Mariners became the fourth team in MLB history be no-hit multiple times in the span of 14 days. Ouch.

Unfortunately, it gets worse. After the no-hit performance, the Mariners offense dipped below a .200 batting average as a team. Yes, you're reading this right. The Mariners offense is now hitting .199 on the year. Of course, that number ranks last in the MLB stats leaders. Seattle's also scoring just 3.88 runs per game, a number that ranks 5th-worst in the league.

One area of concern, jokingly, might be to address Kyle Seager in the lineup. Seager made personal history last night as that's the 9th time he's been involved in a no-hitter while playing for the Mariners. That's more than any player in league history with a single franchise.

But, it's actually not all so bad for the Mariners. This team sits in third-place in the AL West with a 21-22 overall record. They trail the division leading Oakland Athletics by just five games and they've recently called up a few of their top prospects. Currently, FanDuel Sportsbook gives the Mariners +3200 odds to win the AL West.
