In a nutshell, the ten game home stand to open the season didn’t leave the Mariners with as many wins as they probably wished. The Mariners dropped their third three-game series of the 2103 season, losing two out of three to the Detroit Tigers. Seattle finishes the home stand 4-6, and they stand at 7-10 on the season as they head into Texas for three against the Rangers and three against the Astros.
Good News: Mariners Pitching. The Seattle Mariners’ pitching staff is picking up where it left off last season. Aaron Harang, making his first start in the majors this season, gave the Mariners a good showing from the No. 5 hole. In a 6-2 loss on Tuesday, Harang went five innings allowing only three earned runs while striking out six. The three runs he did allow, though, were enough for ex-Mariner Doug Fister to run his record to 3-0 on the season. Felix Hernandez left with a no-decision last night as the Mariners eventually lost 2-1 in the 14th. Hernandez rebounded from two stra...

Seattle Mariners catcher Kelly Shoppach made what may be one of the worst throws ever by a major league catcher during Tuesday night's game at Safeco Field against the Detroit Tigers. It happened in the ninth inning as Tigers pinch runner Andy Dirks was stealing second base. Dirks made it easily as Shoppach somehow threw the ball straight down into the ground less than five...

The moment Dustin Ackley's line drive left the bat, Justin Smoak knew he was going to get waved home by third base coach Jeff Datz.
After nearly 4 1/2 hours of baseball and with Seattle running out of players, there really wasn't another choice.

Teams owning a controlling interesting in their RSN is nothing new. The Yankees, Mets, Red Sox, Astros, and Orioles all belong to that club, while the Nationals, Angels, Rangers, Padres, and (probably) the Dodgers own parts of theirs. Now, a new team has joined the controlling group, and it's not a team you probably envisioned: the Seattle Mariners.
The team will purchase...
Just as you can't assume the double play, you can't assume Justin Verlander will win every game.
Verlander certainly pitched well enough to win Thursday's getaway game in Seattle, allowing just two runs on nine hits while walking one and striking out a season high 12.
But Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma matched him in the outs department, if not in strikeouts, and...
