John Jaso hit the go-ahead single in the sixth inning and Blake Beavan's 7 2-3 strong innings led the Mariners to their seventh consecutive victory, 5-3 over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night.
The winning streak is Seattle's longest since an eight-game run June 23-July 1, 2011.
Beavan (7-6) gave up three runs and seven hits. He threw 82 pitches and struck out four. He is undefeated (4-0) since being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma July 17.
Toronto starter Carlos Villanueva (6-1) threw six innings, allowed seven hits, four earned runs and struck out six. He went 4-0 and allowed just five earned runs in July
Tom Wilhelmsen pitched the ninth for his 15th save.
BEST OF MAXIM
Going into Major League Baseball’s non-waiver trade deadline, it was known that the Seattle Mariners were going to be sellers. Three players ended up being moved: Ichiro Suzuki, Steve Delabar, and Brandon League. Two players heavily rumored stayed put: Kevin Millwood and Jason Vargas. As the Mariners make a late push to end this season at .500, I take a look at the three...
Everybody knows that Brendan Ryan can play shortstop. It seems like every game, Ryan makes the highlight reel with a remarkable play that saves a run or gets a pitcher out of a jam.
He has been the starting shortstop this year because of his glove. Ryan is now starting to hit and he’s becoming one of the best short stops in all of baseball.
Ryan started the year...
In one of the least talked about trades today.
The Seattle Mariners traded reliever, Brandon League, to the Los Angeles Dodgers for two minor leaguers; outfielder Leon Landry and pitcher Logan Bawcom.
The deal went down late Monday night.
League has been a viable relief option lately, not only for the Mariners, but for fantasy owners as well. He did struggle this year as closer...
This week in Mariners baseball was a big one. The face of the Mariners, Ichiro Suzuki, was traded to the New York Yankees on Monday, July 23rd. Then on Sunday, July 29th, the Mariners completed their first 4-game home sweep in 11 years. The Mariners finished up the week 5-2, and are 11-6 since the all-star break, within only 10 games of .500. Starting third baseman Kyle Seager also...
The Mariners weren’t able to make a big splash at this year’s trade deadline, but with the way the club is structured and the type of players that he covets, General Manager Jack Zduriencik will likely be better served in trying to make that blockbuster deal over the winter. SeattleClubhouse takes a look at what such a deal could look like.
The Seattle Mariners have won a season-high seven straight games, while CC Sabathia has won his last seven starts against them in dominating fashion.
The New York Yankees ace looks to continue his mastery of the Mariners in the opener of a three-game set in the Bronx on Friday night.
Seattle (50-57) lost two of three at home to New York (61-43) from July 23-25, with the Yankees...
Who would have thought the Seattle Mariners would turn into the Yankees' Reverse Flash? Yeesh, everybody on the team is a past or future Yankee. It's like meeting yourself in a crappy time-travel movie. Of course, we all know the Biblical story of Jesus, Hector and the Pinata. Let's not go there. But in another dimension - one where the Higgs Boson is slightly dimmer...
Simple point: I loved Eric Thames from the day he was drafted and i will continue to follow his career but, ultimately, he's probably just a guy. In terms of actual baseball accomplishments. Think of, say, Jacob Brumfield (not making a direct comparison, just speaking of the sort of carer that seems likely). We dealt him for another "just a guy" type of player. no need...
