Erik Swanson blows the save Sunday

Erik Swanson blew the save on Sunday against Texas, allowing three runs on three hits without recording an out.

Fantasy Impact:

Swanson got the opportunity after Diego Castillo and Paul Sewald each pitched on Friday and Saturday. The Mariners took a 3-1 lead entering the ninth inning, which was quickly wiped away after Swanson allowed a single followed by back-to-back home runs. Swanson was on fire entering this appearance, going 12 straight appearances without allowing a run entering Sunday. It was poor timing with everything going on after the Kendall Graveman trade, but the Mariners did leave a lot of runners on base and likely should have scored more runs as well you can argue.
