The Seattle Mariners‘ second-longest winning streak in franchise history has now reached 13 games.

Seattle took down the Texas Rangers 3-2 in the 10th inning on Saturday at Globe Life Field. J.P. Crawford got the go-ahead hit on a single in the top of the 10th.

The Mariners — who have the longest playoff drought in North American team sports — won 15 games in a row in 2001, as part of a 116-win season (tied with the 1906 Chicago Cubs for the MLB record). That’s also the last time Seattle made the postseason.

Here’s a peek at how the baseball world is reacting to the Mariners’ winning streak reaching 13 games:

Seattle will look to make it 14 straight wins heading into the All-Star break with Sunday’s series finale in Texas.

The Mariners are now 50-42 and would have the second AL Wild Card slot if the season ended today. And with the way the team is playing, to go with the playoff drought, it’s easy to see Seattle president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto being very aggressive ahead of the Aug. 2 trade deadline.
