Seattle Mariners finish a roller coaster week

All in all, it’s been a good couple of weeks for the Seattle Mariners. The Mariners find themselves getting some national attention, the first since Philip Humber threw a perfect game against them. Last week, the Mariners scored a MLB season-high 21 runs in a game against the Rangers. Then, on Friday, six Seattle Mariners combined to throw a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers...

My oh My! Top play of the week for the Seattle Mariners (video)

No-no-no-no-no-no hitter! If anybody in their right mind thought I would be doing anything else this week besides the no-hitter, well then, you crazy fool! In my life time, which encompasses all but one year of the Seattle Mariners franchise history, I have witnessed countless no-hitters tossed, a plethora of perfect games, and even a few no-no’s and pefect games ruined. The...

Millwood's status remains uncertain

Seattle Mariners right hander Kevin Millwood's ability to make his next start won't be known until at least Tuesday. Millwood came out of Friday's start with a slight right groin strain, and an MRI indicates no real damage. But the Mariners won't make a decision on whether or not to have him start on Thursday until Tuesday; he could be pushed back to the weekend...

Mariners had eye on Cougs' Ard for long time

SEATTLE – Seattle Mariners scouting director Tom McNamara told this weekend that his baseball club has had its eye on Washington State first baseman Taylor Ard for years. A local kid with a polished hitting repertoire is the kind you hate to lose to someone else, he said. That’s especially true for a club that’s spent nearly a decade trying to find a middle-of-the-order thumper.

The Seattle Mariners Combined No Hitter Raises Questions

Seattle Mariners - 1  Los Angeles Dodgers - 0On Friday night at Safeco Field in Seattle, Tom Wilhelmsen delivered the Mariners 114th pitch of the game to Andre Eithier of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Unbeknownst to Tom, Eithier’s sharp hit ground ball to second would complete the 10th combined no hitter in big league history. Kevin Millwood started the game and pitched six innings...

Mariners C Montero 1 constant in no-hitter

(Eds: Updates throughout. With AP Photos.) Still giddy from one unlikely no-hitter, Seattle catcher Jesus Montero went around the clubhouse on Saturday searching for autographs. Montero printed pictures of the six pitchers involved in Friday's combined no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers, plus a couple shots of the on-field celebration. He handed out the photos with a...

Lucas Luetge It Is

Scott Downs and Aroldis Chapman each surrendered earned runs this past week, leaving the winner of the last reliever standing as Rule 5 pick Lucas Luetge. He probably has no clue he won this "award", but congratulations to the Seattle Mariners lefty anyway. For those of you not in the know, Luetge is the only relief pitcher to have a pristine 0.00 ERA after starting the...

While you were sleeping: six Seattle Mariners pitchers combine to no hit L.A. Dodgers

Kevin Millwood kept the Los Angeles Dodgers hitless through the first six innings on Friday, but when a groin injury during warm ups prevented him from returning to the game five additional Seattle pitchers came out of the bullpen to finish the job and complete one of the most unusual no hitters in baseball history.  It was a pitchers duel between Millwood and Dodgers starter...

Seattle Mariners hit bottom, with a six man no-hitter

The Seattle Mariners tossed a six man no-hitter. That’s right, a six man no-hitter. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. I thought after the first pitcher was out, it was over. I didn’t know you could combine player stats. Someone should have told the New York Mets a week ago, because I’m sure they would have pulled Johan Santana. Instead of letting him go bionic man...

Umpire Brian Runge with 2 no-hitters called in '12

(Eds: APNewsNow. ) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer Amid the chaos of the starter leaving with an injury, a two-base throwing error, three walks and five pitching changes, Brian Runge wasn't paying attention to the history the Seattle Mariners were making. When six Mariners pitchers tossed the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history Friday night, Runge found his own chapter...

Padres-Mariners Preview

The Seattle Mariners are hoping to finally see a healthy and effective Felix Hernandez after giving him some time off to recover from back soreness. In his first start in 11 days Tuesday night, Hernandez will try to end his recent struggles by adding to those of the San Diego Padres, losers of 15 of 19. Hernandez (4-4, 3.42 ERA) was 3-1 with a 1.89 ERA over his first seven starts...

The final 25 players selected by the Seattle Mariners on day three of the 2012 MLB First Year Player Draft.

Jesus Montero catches a no-hitter

Word has it from high Yankee sources that he'll never cut it in the majors. Too big.
