Mariners pass test in front of big crowd
SEATTLE -- Mariners manager Eric Wedge called the 39,204 screaming fans on Tuesday a good test for the ballclub. He didn't feel the need to discuss what happened with the team, though, as he said the players handled it well.

"It was a good test because it was a playoff atmosphere, which most of our guys haven't been a part of. There was a lot of lead-up to it, a lot of expectations with it, and it sure didn't let anybody down," Wedge said. "It was every bit of what you hoped it would be and then some.

"I said to people, 'Hopefully it's a precursor of what's not too far down the road for us.' Just a great environment."

Many of the Mariners players after the game relived the atmosphere and were astonished with both the turnout and energy of the crowd.
