Wearing a Players’ Weekend jersey with a pair of emojis that depict a box and a hamburger in place of his name, Diamondbacks closer Brad Boxberger entered Saturday’s game to a jovial atmosphere.

But the mood inside Chase Field quickly shifted, as Boxberger allowed two runs in the ninth, blowing the save en route to a 4-3 loss that forced the Diamondbacks into a first-place tie with the Colorado Rockies in the NL West.

Boxberger, the first player in MLB history to wear emojis on the back of his jersey, allowed a one-out walk to former Diamondbacks infielder Jean Segura and then yielded a single to Mariners outfielder Nelson Cruz to bring the tying run to the plate for Seattle.

BOX SCORE:  Mariners 4, Diamondbacks 3 (10)
