The Mariners scored only one run Saturday against the Red Sox despite tallying nine hits, and took a loss for the 14th consecutive game.
The M’s have scored only 32 runs in that 14-game span and will set a franchise record for futility if they lose again in Sunday’s series finale at Fenway Park.
Seattle had a .500 record (43-43) on July 5. Now the team is a whopping 14 games under .500 and 14.5 games behind the Rangers for first place in the American League West.
