Mariners drop what could be their last droppable series in loss to A's.

The Mariners fell to the A's on Sunday 4-0, bringing them a full game out of the Wild Card with fourteen left to go. Crunch time is coming. Part of the problem with the way this whole weekend went down is our own fault. Now, sure. We had very little to do with Fernando Rodney's shocking inability to locate the strike zone last night, and if any of us had decided to hop on down to that field to try and salvage today's 4-0 loss to the Athletics, we would have just made it all worse. I know you're also all frustrated that Kendrys Morales went 0-3 and grounded into his gajillionth double play...

SUNDAY ASSIGNMENT: You're throwing one back at Henry's after the game, wallowing in despair over a brutal loss to end the series with the A's.

Mariners’ homers top A’s, who fall into wild-card tie with Detroit

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Safeco Field Oakland’s losses come in all different varieties these days, but Friday’s was especially unusual and also a little extra significant. The A’s lost their designated hitter early on, forcing starter Jason Hammel to hit – and Hammel, a former National League pitcher, contributed to a rally with a bunt in the fourth inning that helped lead to a run. The Mariners, though, scored three runs off Hammel, including solo homers by Robinson Cano and Logan Morrrison, and they beat Oakland 4-2 at Safeco Field. Kendrys Morales added a third...

Three homers power Mariners to 4-2 victory over A’s

SEATTLE — The Mariners muscled up with three homers Friday night and continued their postseason push with a 4-2 victory over the Oakland A’s at Safeco Field. Logan Morrison broke a 2-2 tie with a homer in the fifth inning before Kendrys Morales stretched the lead to two runs in the sixth. Those came after Robinson Cano opened the scoring with a homer in the first inning. That was enough. Mariners starter James Paxton (6-2) handed that two-run lead to rookie reliever Carson Smith to start the seventh inning. Paxton gave up two runs, one earned, and four hits in six … Read more »

Mariners 4, Rangers 2 -- Seattle improves to 15 games over .500

  Video highlights Box score It took a little while for them to get going. A three-hour and 13 minute rain delay of sitting around and waiting can make the most energetic of players lethargic. But with most people in bed or wishing they were, the Mariners did what they were supposed to do - beat a bad Rangers' team and add to their lead in the race for the final American League wild card spot. Kendrys Morales and Logan Morrison each laced RBI singles into left field to score provide the game-winning run and a game-insuring run in the eighth inning to roll to a 4-2 win over Texas on late...

Wednesday's pregame notes and lineups: Rangers at Mariners

Interesting lineup today. But Lloyd McClendon will be getting Robby Cano a "rest day" at designated hitter. That means Logan Morrison will move to right field and Kendrys Morales will make the start at first. Starter Colby Lewis does have some noticeable splits (below) so this is a good chance to get Brad Miller in the lineup as well.     Here's Lewis' career splits   Here's the Mariners numbers vs. Lewis
