The Mariners are getting better. They’re hitting. They’re pitching. They may be turning a corner.

But, still, no one’s going to see them.

Indeed, Monday’s exciting victory over the Orioles drew another record-low crowd to Safeco Field. For the first time in history (see gallery below), the M’s drew fewer than 10,000 people to the stadium — and that includes season-ticket holders who may not have shown up.

The Mariners continued riding the spark they found for themselves during their first series victory this weekend over the Angels. Starter Joe Saunders tossed a complete-game gem Monday, redeeming his last start (a 10-3 loss in Houston) with a four-hit performance against the Orioles.

Meanwhile, center fielder Michael Saunders loudly announced his return from the disabled list with a leadoff home run in the bottom of the first, putting the M’s up 1-0. And after Baltimore’s Matt Wieters hit a two-run shot to put his team up 2-1 in the top of the fourth, the Mariners quickly bounced back.

In the bottom frame, Michael Morse singled, Jesus Montero walked, (Justin Smoak popped out) then Jason Bay slapped a double down the left-field line, scoring Morse. Robert Andino came to the plate and singled to right field, scoring Montero and putting the M’s back on top 3-2.
