Seattle Mariners: What’s left in the 2013 season?

A definite goal this season for the Seattle Mariners was to get to .500 or possibly over.  However, after another confusing home series loss, this one a sweep to the last place Houston Astros, Seattle can finish no better than .500 this season.  And, that will be a stretch, because they would have to win their last sixteen games in a row.  Seattle has only won one of their last...

Mariners provide rare September interleague matchup at Busch -- and that's about it

ST. LOUIS -- To look at the Cardinals' schedule and see the Mariners playing at Busch Stadium in the middle of September might seem like a mistake. The interleague foes never have met this late in the season. But uncommon meetings at unusual times have happened across the majors because of the realignment that gave both the NL and AL an odd number of teams. At least the Cardinals...

Maurer is knocked out after 3 innings in 6-1 loss

Brandon Maurer's first time back on the mound as a starter since May didn't go the way he wanted. At least it was better than the last time he faced the Houston Astros. The Seattle Mariners right-hander allowed five runs - all scoring with two outs - and seven hits in three innings as the Astros completed a three-game sweep with a 6-1 victory Wednesday night. It was the...

Mariners’ Felix Hernandez to throw bullpen Monday

Seattle Mariners right-handed starting pitcher Felix Hernandez was able to throw a flat-ground session without issue prior to last night’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals. King Felix’s next step in returning from a minor oblique strain will be logging a bullpen Monday. If all goes well, Hernandez could rejoin the Mariners’ rotation on Wednesday, taking the hill against...

Mariners goofs help Cards retake NL Central lead

Mistakes by a few of the Seattle Mariners rookies cost them dearly. On-the-job training can be like that sometimes. Nick Franklin got caught in a rundown and dropped a pop fly at second base for a two-base error that led to the tying run in a 2-1, 10-inning loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night. The winning run scored when the ball popped out of catcher Mike Zunino'...

Looking Back: Astros vs. Mariners review

Disappointing Sweep Well if the Seattle Mariners‘ series against the Houston Astros wasn’t disappointing, I don’t know what is. Playing host to the last-place Astros in what was the conclusion of their second-to-last home series of the year, the Mariners dropped three games in disgusting fashion, all but sending the rest of those fans who were still tuned into the club away...

Mariners Instruct Rosters

The Seattle Mariners will have 54 players reporting to Arizona in the next week to participate in the Fall Instructional and Co-Op Leagues. SeattleClubhouse lists the rosters by position inside.

Could winning too many games in September cost Mariners Tim Lincecum?

The Seattle Mariners haven't played very well in September (nor have they played well for most of the season), compiling a 3-7 record going into Wednesday night's game versus the Houston Astros. That leaves the M's currently tied for the seventh-worst record in MLB and they probably want to keep it that way. As you may already know from last season's offseason...

When striking out might not be a good thing

Strikeout rates have steadily risen in Major League Baseball, which just about everybody knows. And there has been much written about whether the increase is bad or not. But when you consider that the MLB strikeout rate is now at 7.51 per nine innings and compare that to 6.52 per nine just seven years ago, you have a significant culture change. I have had people tell me that an out...

Cards beat M's, retake NL Central lead

Pete Kozma scored on catcher Mike Zunino's passed ball with the bases loaded and two outs in the 10th inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals retook the NL Central lead with a 2-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night. The Cardinals lead the division by a game after Pittsburgh lost. They're 6-1 on a nine-game homestand. Kozma entered in the eighth inning as a pinch...

Mariners self-destruct, Cardinals rally to win 2-1 in extra innings

Better late than never has been a theme for the Cardinals of late one they used to advantage to take two of three games from Milwaukee this week. With a helpng hand from the opponent the offense showed up in the nick of time again Friday as the Cardinals rallied to beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1.
