Red, White & BOOM
If you don’t have plans for the 4th of July holiday weekend and fancy some early fireworks, the Mariners have a deal for you.
In honor of Nelson Cruz’s 20th home run of the season, you can score Main Level (100 Level) tickets to Saturday’s game against the Orioles for just $20. And, while supplies last, if you bought a ticket through the special offer, you get a cool Red, White & BOOM t-shirt.
Tickets are available at Mariners.com/Boom and at all Mariners ticket outlets including Mariners Team Stores, the Safeco Field Box Office, and by phone at 1-888-SEA-HITS.
Cruz is fourth in the American League in home runs. Here are the guys who are ahead of him:
- Mark Trumbo, Baltimore Orioles, 23 HR
- Todd Frazier, Chicago White Sox, 22 HR
- Edwin Encarnacion, Toronto Blue Jays, 21 HR.
Cruz is on pace for 42 home runs this season.
Cruz’s 20th homer came with two outs in the 5th inning of Tuesday’s game off Pittsburgh’s Jonathan Niese. The two-run shot landed mid-way up the Left Field bleachers above Edgar’s Home Run Porch. This marks the eighth consecutive season Cruz has hit 20 or more home runs. He is the only player in MLB with an active streak of 20 or more homers in each of the last eight seasons.
