  2. Angels tie record, fan 20 Mariners in 5-4 victory

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:07 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    The Angels tied a major league record Tuesday as five pitchers combined to fan 20 batters in a 5-4 defeat of the Mariners. Zack Greinke struck out 13 and allowed one run in his five innings of work, but with his pitch count up to 110, the Angels decided to pull him early. That didn’t…

  3. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 1, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 5, Cubs 0: A rejuvenated A.J. Burnett came into a Wrigley Field with the wind blowing in from center against a Cubs team hours off of a significant selloff and tossed a one-hitter. Oh, and Neil Walker drove in all five Pirates runs. Rays 8, Athletics 0: James Shields pitched a very relieved “oh…

  4. Like Ruth before him, Carlos Gomez is revolutionizing the home run

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:50 PM EDT

    Carlos Gomez

    Well, perhaps not the home run itself, but what comes afterwards. On Thursday, Carlos Gomez delivered the second fastest home run trot of the season. On Sunday, he completed the fifth fastest circuit of the bases, according to Wezen-ball.com’s Tater Trot Tracker. In all, Gomez owns four of the six sub-17 second-home run trots this…

  5. 2012 midseason awards: AL MVP

    Jul 6, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Josh Hamilton was far and away the AL’s best player for two months, but he’s definitely come back to the pack after hitting just .223 with four homers in June. He struck out 35 times last month, nearly matching his total of 39 times from April and May combined. That said, he still leads the…

    Mariners no-hitter Getty

    Kevin Millwood, Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen combined for a no-hitter in a 1-0 victory over the Dodgers last night. It was the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history and the first since six Astros combined to no-hit the Yankees on June 11, 2003. It was the third…

  8. Lack of instant replay looms big in another no-hitter

    Jun 9, 2012, 1:28 AM EDT

    Dee Gordon

    Just like in Johan Santana‘s no-hitter exactly a week ago, a close play that could have been overturned by replay loomed large in Seattle’s combined no-hitter against the Dodgers on Friday night. Dee Gordon, maybe the National League’s fastest player, led off the bottom of the ninth with a broken-bat flare to shortstop against Tom…

  9. Rickie Weeks day-to-day after being hit on left wrist by pitch

    May 12, 2012, 11:11 AM EDT

    Rickie Weeks AP

    After losing Mat Gamel and Alex Gonzalez for the season in recent weeks, the Brewers finally got some good news on the injury front. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, Rickie Weeks is day-to-day after initial X-rays came back negative on his left wrist. Weeks was hit in the wrist by a 96 mph fastball…

  10. Looking at MLB’s least productive positions to date

    May 7, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Xavier Nady

    Nationals left fielders, “led” by Xavier Nady, have amassed an MLB-low .406 OPS in 101 at-bats to date, hitting just .119 with no homers and six RBI. Here’s the list of the worst OPSs by team and position so far, along with the player most responsible for the poor showing. LF Nationals – .406 (.119/.237/.168)…

  11. Can we please just let Phil Humber have his perfect game in peace?

    humber gray getty

    UPDATE: Barra responds. Fair enough: he’s not upset about the call, he’s upset at the media’s reaction to it, Fox not showing the reruns, etc. 10:31 AM: Because my parents had the kids and me over for dinner — and because my parents are old people who like to have dinner at 4:30pm — I…

  12. Philip Humber finishes off perfect game against Mariners

    Apr 21, 2012, 6:01 PM EDT

    humber getty

    White Sox starter Philip Humber is having his way with the light-hitting Mariners lineup on Saturday in Seattle and currently stands perfect through seven innings of work. Humber has only thrown 70 pitches, so he should be able to go the distance if everything continues to roll his way. The 29-year-old right-hander entered the afternoon…

  13. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 16, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Houston Astros v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 5, Astros 4: Omar Infante and Hanley Ramirez hit home runs, finally putting that crazy home run sculpture into action. Somehow we all survived, though I’m not ruling out the possibility that we all got thrown into an alternate timeline or something and won’t truly realize it until all the crazy occult stuff starts…

  14. Mariners bench Brendan Ryan for accountability issue

    Apr 10, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT

    Brendan Ryan

    Brendan Ryan is taking a seat for Tuesday’s game against the Rangers due to an accountability issue, manager Eric Wedge told Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times. The only additional detail provided was that it was unrelated to the poor throw Ryan made in Monday night’s game. Ryan might have been late to arrive to…

    From MLB.com’s Greg Johns comes word that Mariners shortstop Brendan Ryan was scratched from Saturday’s game against the A’s due to neck stiffness.

  16. Quote of the Day: Brendan Ryan on his ring bearer, Felix Hernandez

    Mar 29, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Brendan Ryan

    If you’re into the sappy love stuff, there’s a story over at MLB.com about how the Mariners’ Brendan Ryan proposed to his girlfriend in Tokyo yesterday. Just … awwwwwww. But the best part was when Ryan was talking about the logistics of his proposal. Specifically, how he got the rock over to Japan: The hyperactive…

    Mariners 3, A’s 1: Opening Morning!  Gotta say, for all of my bitching about this yesterday, it was kind of nice to wake up at 5:52 AM, roll over, fire up the laptop and watch some baseball. At least until my kids woke up. Then I had to take precious time away from the game…

  18. Mariners are No. 1 at something — commercials

    Mar 14, 2012, 2:14 AM EDT

    felix-120312.standard[1]

    While the Seattle Mariners haven’t been much to look at on the field in recent years, they still continue to put out some of the most amusing commercials in all of baseball. That might be kind of like building the best car in Tibet, but hey, throw the Mariners a bone, people. At least they’re…

  19. Running down the rosters: Seattle Mariners

    Feb 21, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    The Mariners have finished in last place in the AL West six of the last eight years, and while their is a shining ray of hope on the way in 2013 in the form of the Astros, they’re going to have a tough time not making it seven of nine years this season. Rotation Felix…

  20. Dropping Ichiro in order not the answer for the Mariners

    Jan 26, 2012, 6:55 PM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Manager Eric Wedge said Thursday that he’s probably going to try Ichiro Suzuki somewhere other than at the top of the order this season. “It’s as much to do with his teammates as it has to do with him with regard to the collective nine that we’re putting down on paper,” Wedge said. “I haven’t…

    Jan 4, 2011, 9:54 PM EDT

    brendan-ryan-cardinals2

    Earlier this week the Cardinals acquired Ryan Theriot from the Dodgers and made it clear they plan to start him at shortstop, so not surprisingly Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that “the Cardinals have let other teams know Brendan Ryan is available and they’ll look to trade him during next week’s…

  23. Cardinals looking for upgrade over Brendan Ryan at shortstop

    Nov 14, 2010, 11:44 AM EDT

    brendan-ryan-cardinals2

    Brendan Ryan is one of the elite defensive shortstops in baseball, but he followed up a solid 2009 season at the plate by hitting just .223 with a lowly .573 OPS this year and general manager John Mozeliak told Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post Dispatch that the Cardinals will look to upgrade the…
