Every single at-bat for the Mariners counts this time of year.
It's been 16 daunting years since the M's made it to the postseason. Robinson Cano understands this, which is why he was beyond furious when a check swing call didn't go his way.
So upset in fact, the usually calm Cano was tossed by the home plate umpire.
It sure looked like Cano held back, but to no avail.
He was tossed and it barely even looked like he clapped back. Regardless, he took an early shower.
The good news? His ejection appears to have fired up his team, which holds an 8-1 lead late in this one. It'll be a huge win for Seattle.
