M's fan shares candy with Josh Hamilton

Back on Sunday afternoon, Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton sweet tooth got the best of him as he decided to do a little bit of snacking in the outfield during the Rangers win in Seattle. Watch as a Mariners fan hands him a box of Twizzlers and Josh is more than happy to take a couple: Your browser does not support iframes.

Rangers fall victim to King Felix's 12-K gem

SEATTLE (AP) -- Felix Hernandez struck out 12 in a three-hitter and the Seattle Mariners beat Yu Darvish and the Texas Rangers 7-0 on Saturday night.

Mariners attack Darvish, King Felix dominates

So … I thought tonight’s game would be a good match-up.  And on paper, it was. But I forgot the troubles Yu Darvish has with the Mariners’ offense.  I don’t know why they give him fits, but I’m beginning to think it’s all mental.  Sigh. Right away, Darvish struggled.  Giving up four runs in the first inning. Two of them scored before he could log an out.  Seattle...

Rangers vs Mariners In Seattle: Pitching, series preview, analysis & predictions

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson reports on the Mariners series matchup with the Texas Rangers. PITCHING MATCHUP: Rangers LH Derek Holland (5-4, 5.05 ERA) vs. Mariners RH Kevin Millwood (3-6, 3.69 ERA) in the series opener. Millwood hasn't won a game since the end of May, but has pitched well in his past few starts.

The Orioles and Jason Vargas

The still-surprising Baltimore Orioles are rumored to be “poking around” on Seattle Mariners pitcher Jason Vargas. I am not sure how that sort of physical contact is permissible (nailed it!), but it makes some sense for the Orioles to try and improve their team. Is Vargas the right pitcher to aim for, though, even if they can’t get player like Matt Garza? Vargas (29) floundered...

Today In Sports History- Nolan Ryan’s 2nd No-Hitter

July 15, 1973 - Nolan Ryan (California Angels) became the first pitcher in two decades to win two no-hitters in a season. Exactly 2 months after his 1st ‘No-No’, Ryan did it again versus Detroit.  The second showing was a little more dominant than his first no-hitter, with Ryan striking out 17 batters while walking 4 in this 9-inning showcase. With the Tigers trailing 6-0 and...

Harrison secures series with complete game shutout

One of the best things about baseball is the short break between games.  Especially after a bad game.  You don’t have time to dwell on the loss and ugly performance for very long (unilke college or pro football — the other two sports I watch with regularity).  And the Rangers took advantage of that today, rebounding from a shutout that included poor pitching and nothing in...

Royals-Mariners preview

(AP) -- The Seattle Mariners have had their issues lately but Jason Vargas' recent efforts haven't been one. Vargas will try to produce another such outing while continuing his success against another struggling club, the Kansas City Royals, on Monday night. Seattle (37-53) is batting .186 over its last 17 games and once again struggled to produce runs consistently this...

Beltre homers, Rangers beat Mariners

SEATTLE (AP) -- Derek Holland pitched into the eighth and Adrian Beltre hit a two-run homer to help the Texas Rangers hang on against the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Friday night at Safeco Field. Holland (6-4) entered the game with a 5.05 ERA and only one scoreless start in 2012, which was when he threw six innings at Baltimore on May 10. Friday, he threw 7 2-3 innings, struck out...

Felix Hernandez and Ichiro Suzuki aren’t going anywhere

According to Mariners' GM Jack Zduriencik (via Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports), the team plans to keep both Felix Hernandez and Ichiru Suzuki beyond the Trade deadline. He adds that they also plan to bring Ichiro back in 2013 even though he could be a free agent at the end of the season. “He's a big part of this team,” said Zduriencik. “He's a franchise player here...
