Some victories feel better than others, but the Seattle Mariners victory on Saturday was perhaps the best salvation for Edwin Diaz's tighter career. The 24-year-old picked up his best 50th season of the season in the Mariners' 4-3, 10-inning win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, meaning Seattle manager Scott Servais had to follow a bet and a haircut like his come closer.
While Diaz usually keeps the ball after each of his saves He gave Servais in honor of Saturday's bet.
"It's all a lot of fun," said Servais after the Saturday game of the bet, which was made in April. "It's really hard to get 50 games in this game." [Diaz] Diaz had fun on Tuesday when he was overseeing Servais' scissors while wearing an "Electric Eddie's Barbershop" cap given to him by the manager.
The two later posed side by side to show off their matching locks.
