Mike Zunino’s home run keys Mariners’ 10-5 win over Astros

Mike Zunino had a job to do, and he was going to do it properly. With runners on first and second — thanks to two errors on routine plays by the Houston infield — and no outs, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon asked his slugging catcher to lay down a sacrifice bunt to move the runners into scoring position. Even though Zunino had never put down a sacrifice bunt in his 174-game...

Boxscore Breakdown #153: Salt Lake Bees of Anaheim – Mariners 3, Angels 1

There’s nothing like some crucial September baseball games with playoff implications. That is unless you’ve already clinched your playoff spot and don’t care anymore. In that case, you run out the lineup and starting pitcher for your Triple-A team. It wasn’t exactly high drama and I suspect a lot of Angels fans took the night off as well, but we almost got ourselves a nice...

Scioscia goes deep into bench in Angels' loss to Mariners

The Salt Lake Bees outlasted Felix Hernandez on Thursday night. Who would have guessed? A night after clinching the AL West, the Angels rested their regulars and utilized their September call-ups in their finale against the Seattle Mariners. Oddly enough, it wasn't a reserve who made the key mistake in the game; It was setup man Kevin Jepsen who gave up a three-run home run to...

How (Un)Lucky Have The Seattle Mariners Been?

In the throes of the NFL season and endless scandals, many Seattle Mariners fans can be forgiven if they didn’t actually see Fernando Rodney walk four hitters in the 10th to lose the game to the Oakland A’s over the weekend. Although it is pretty difficult to walk four batters in one inning, Rodney hasn’t blown an inordinate number of saves over the course of the season. It’s...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Mariners vs. Clinch

This could be the clinchiest series the Angels ever clinched. They can clinch a playoff berth and the AL West title all in this series. They can also clinch at least a tie for their second-most wins in a season ever at 97. The only thing they can’t clinch is the best record in the AL, though they can push it pretty close. The downside of that is that this could be the last semi...

No arrows for Fernando Rodney

You have to hand it to the Oakland Athletics. They are a smart team that uses their information very wisely. The A's had tied a huge game with the Seattle Mariners up with a home run by Josh Donaldson off of perhaps the best pitcher in the American League. The homer ensured that King Felix could not seal the deal on perhaps the biggest start of his career in Seattle. In the...

Minor Accomplishments: September Pitcher Call-Ups

After speculating who might get the call this September, we now know which prospects are getting their feet wet in the majors. More importantly, we can decide which ones may provide some fantasy value. Unlike hitter call-ups, pitchers sometimes change roles completely when they first break in. So an arm like Taijuan Walker - whom we all know is destined to be a starter - finds himself...
