On April 10, 2019 — 2019 – The surprising Mariners continue to be the hottest team in the majors, improving to 12-2 with a 6 – 5 win over the Royals. Mitch Haniger hits a tie-breaking homer with two outs in the 9th, and Seattle has now homered in its first 14 games matching the 2002 Indians as the only two teams ever to do so. For Kansas City, which suffers its 9th straight loss, Whit Merrifield sets a new team record by extending his hitting streak to 31 games, dating back to last season, with a bunt single in the 7th. The record had previously been held by Royals legend George Brett.
