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

    Apr 29, 2013, 5:40 AM EDT

    Russell Martin

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 0: Two homers for Russell Martin and a strong start from Jeff Locke. The Pirates — the Pittsburgh Pirates — are in first place in the National League Central. This goes with the Royals being in first place in the AL Central. I predicted each of these teams would be better this…

  3. For first time ever, Jason Bay is a leadoff man

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Jason Bay

    Facing a lefty in Anaheim’s C.J. Wilson on Friday, the Mariners have Jason Bay leading off for the first time in his career. With Franklin Gutierrez sidelined, Endy Chavez had been leading off for the Mariners of late, but he’s only an option there against righties. Bay, who is hitting .220 overall, is 4-for-14 with…

    Michael Morse got off to a huge start for the Mariners, hitting .293 with six homers in his first 10 games, but then he fractured his right pinkie finger and has struggled since returning.

    Apr 24, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    brendan ryan getty

    Brendan Ryan is a great defensive shortstop, but he’s hitting .143 this season after hitting .194 last year and the Mariners have decided to bench him. Greg Johns of MLB.com reports that Robert Andino will take over as the starting shortstop, with Ryan shifting into a utility man role. Of course, Andino is hitting just…

    Oakland Athletics v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 9, Athletics 6: Just yesterday Mike Napoli was named player of the week for last week. He’s making a bid for a repeat now, hitting a grand slam and driving in five runs here. Overall he has 25 RBI in 19 games. Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1: Chris Tillman had a one hitter…

  8. Nick Tepesch exits game after taking liner to wrist

    Apr 20, 2013, 8:44 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Seattle Mariners

    Nick Tepesch left in the second inning of tonight’s game against the Mariners after taking a Jesus Montero liner off of his right wrist.

    Apr 19, 2013, 6:48 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 10, Rays 6: Time to re-bookmark Matt Wieters Facts. The Chosen One’s grand slam in the 10th gives the O’s their 17th straight extra innings win. Diamondbacks 6, Yankees 2: Frankie Cervelli hit a homer to tie it in the ninth. He also had two — not one, but two — catcher’s interference calls.…

  10. So this is how the Mariners-Tigers game ended

    Apr 18, 2013, 9:22 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2013-04-18 at 7.08.42 AM

    It went into the wee, wee hours. There were 40 strikeouts between the two teams. And then it all ended with the Tigers relying on their bullpen and the Mariners relying upon the foot speed of Justin Smoak. Not exactly a strength against strength situation. The game-ending play: Smoak on first, Dustin Ackley at the…

  11. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 18, 2013, 5:55 AM EDT

    Jay Bruce

    Reds 1, Phillies 0: CONTINUED FROM TUESDAY NIGHT: Nine minutes, a quick score and then the whole thing was over. About as good a night as you coulda hoped for when you were 17, but for the Phillies this had to be disappointing. Reds 11, Phillies 2: Well, maybe not as disappointing as this. The…

  12. Play of the Day: Kelly Shoppach shows them worms he means business

    Apr 17, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Kelly Shoppach

    Words sort of fail here. Let’s just say that, at the end of the year, Andy Dirks will have a stolen base in his stat line for which he probably owes Kelly Shoppach an assist. Go here to see why. Nice throw, Kelly.

    Stephen Pryor Getty

    The Mariners’ bullpen will be without a key cog for the near future, as Stephen Pryor was placed on the 15-day disabled list this evening with a tear in the latissimus dorsi muscle behind his right shoulder. According to Greg Johns of MLB.com, the tear was found by Mariners medical director Edward Khalfayan after Pryor…

    Apr 15, 2013, 5:55 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics

    Tigers 10, Athletics 1: Austin Jackson was 4 for 6 with three RBI. Prince Fielder is now hitting .429/.527/.833. Once this team gets its bullpen figured out, man, watch out. Diamondbacks 1, Dodgers 0: When Nick Swisher hit a walkoff homer single in a 1-0 game the other day I thought to myself, “man, you don’t…

Darvish opened the bottom of the first by hitting Jason Bay with one out and then giving up three singles, putting the Rangers in the early 3-0 hole. He was stellar…

  17. Some pitching feats in tonight’s action

    Apr 12, 2013, 10:40 PM EDT

    A.J. Burnett

    A.J. Burnett turned in his third consecutive solid effort, holding the Reds to three runs over six innings tonight, striking out eight. Since 2000, there are only ten occurrences of a pitcher tossing at least five innings and striking out eight or more in at least his first three starts of the season. Randy Johnson…

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Diego Padres

    Had tickets to the Columbus Clippers-Indianapolis Indians game. Daisuke Matsuzaka was scheduled to start. Then it rained and they canceled the game. I have mixed feelings about it all because, on the one hand, baseball. On the other hand I dodged the Matsuzaka bullet. Oh well. Dodgers 3, Padres 2: FISTICUFFSMANSHIP!  Zack Greinke hit Carlos…

  19. Michael Morse could miss a week with fractured pinkie

    Apr 12, 2013, 3:29 AM EDT

    Michael Morse

    The Mariners could be without one of the AL’s hottest hitters for a week after Michael Morse suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right pinkie finger during Thursday’s game against the Rangers. Morse, who is batting .293 with six homers, was hit on the hand by a Tanner Scheppers pitch in the eighth inning, but…

    Michael Saunders crashed almost head-on into the outfield wall on Wednesday night at Safeco Field while running down a Jose Altuve warning-track fly. He laid on the ground for several minutes before eventually walking off the field with his right arm hanging limply at his side. It looked like a right shoulder injury — one…

    Robinson Cano, Yan Gomes

    Yankees 14, Indians 1: “Man, where are the Yankees going to get any offense with all of their big hitters on the DL?” no one is asking today like they asked so much last week. I guess nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin to say, but nothin’ comes out when they move their…

  24. Second game in reconfigured Safeco features eight homers

    Apr 10, 2013, 1:48 AM EDT

    Michael Morse

    Yeah, but new walls or not, it’s hard to slow down offensive juggernauts like the Astros and Mariners possess. In the second game in Safeco since the walls were brought in, those two teams combined for eight homers in a 16-9 Houston victory. Here’s the list: Houston Chris Carter x2 Jose Altuve J.D. Martinez Marwin…
