After giving the Minnesota Twins the chance to earn a rare win, the Seattle Mariners turned the tables in the middle game of the series. Fresh off the end to a lengthy skid, the Mariners will try to record back-to-back home wins for the second time this season in Sunday's finale. Seattle (12-17) snapped a seven-game losing streak and a five-game skid at Safeco Field by limiting Minnesota to one hit in a 7-0 victory Saturday. Kyle Seager broke open a scoreless game with a two-run single in the sixth inning and hit a two-run homer in the seventh. Ichiro Suzuki also drove in a pair of runs on a triple as the Mariners scored five times during the inning. "That feels really good," Seager told the team's website. "(The losing streak) had gone on a little too long for our liking, for sure. ... We just got to score more runs." The win came after major league-worst Minnesota earned its second victory in 11 games Friday. The Twins (7-19) got some bad news befo...

Doumit provides only runs as Twins finish trip

There weren't many highlights for the Minnesota Twins on their recent road trip, which turned out to be a trip to forget.

With Sunday's loss, the Twins finished just 1-5 on the road...

Ump throws ball at Noesi (VIDEO)

Hilarious situation in Seattle this weekend. Hector Noesi had two balls thrown at him. One by the ump, one by his catcher. Have a look. Nice reflexes Hector! He threw one low pitch, but ended up getting back two baseballs. Wish I had this luck with women.

Dozier off to good start in major league debut

MINNEAPOLIS Twins shortstop Brian Dozier played well enough in spring training to perhaps warrant a shot at the majors out of camp. Still, he said before spring was over that he expected to start the year in the minor leagues. That's exactly how it played out. But when Dozier was assigned to Triple-A Rochester to start the season, he used that as motivation instead of getting...

Willingham out sick for Twins

Minnesota Twins slugger Josh Willingham was scratched from the lineup on Monday night because of an illness. Manager Ron Gardenhire said Willingham likely would be available later in the game if needed to pinch hit, but he wanted to give his outfielder a chance to recover. Willingham leads the Twins with five home runs. Second baseman Alexi Casilla also missed the game with a sore...

Seattle Mariners right ship, take series from Twins

The Seattle Mariners started their latest ten game road trip in grand fashion, winning their first four games. They then dropped their last six, including all four games to the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays are tied for best record in the American League, and it was a competitive series for Seattle losing three games by one run and the other by two. The Mariners then finally returned...

1991 World Champion Twins started slow, too

Believe it or not, the 1991 World Series champion Minnesota Twins got off to a slow start, too. Not quite of the magnitude that the 2012 Twins have gotten off to Minnesota is now 7-20 after losing Sunday to the Seattle Mariners. But despite the end result in 1991, those Twins were also slow out of the gates. And similarly to this year's Twins, the '91 squad was coming...

Hey Mariners, It's Okay to Admit You Made A Mistake

Hector Noesi throws pitch, gets 2 balls back

Seattle Mariners pitcher Hector Noesi must have thought he was seeing double during Sunday's game against the Minnesota Twins when— after having a pitch land in the dirt— his catcher and the umpire got their signals crossed and each threw a ball back at the surprised Noesi. In the third inning, the former New York Yankees pitcher threw a strike to catcher John Jaso.  Jaso...
