The Seattle Mariners took the lead early in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Houston Astros.
And for most of the game, the M’s seemed determined to keep a cushion of at least 4 runs between them and their competition.
But almost without warning, the Astros turned things upside-down, ending the game with a three-run walk-off homer from Yordan Alvarez. Final score: 8-7.
This is truly what they mean by the agony of defeat, a crushingly deflating end to what looked like the Mariners game.
