Mariners come up empty in 2-0 loss to Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif. — On a Saturday afternoon that followed a four-homer Friday night, the Seattle Mariners produced…crickets. Against Oakland right-hander Kendall Graveman in a 2-0 loss at the O.co Coliseum. Graveman worked the first seven innings before Drew Pomeranz and Tyler Clippard completed the shutout, which stuck Felix Hernandez with his first loss to the Athletics in his last 14 starts in the East Bay. And that, friends, is how the Mariners, now 37-44, reached the midpoint of this disappointing season. Felix was standard Felix. Not the King in top form but still pretty good in...

Athletics overthrow King Felix on July 4th

Athletics overthrow King Felix on July 4th

I'm going to get a lot of mileage out of the obvious pun here – the A's defeated "King" Felix Hernandez on July 4th. Really, this is the Mariners' fault. Starting a guy with the nickname "King" on July 4th is inviting fate. Kendall "George Washington" Graveman and Billy "Thomas Jefferson" Burns were both incredible. Full recap to come.

Mookie Betts learns quick to forget fast

It’s almost refreshing when Mookie Betts reveals he is just 22 years old and a big league newbie.Because those moments happen so rarely — like when he messed up Friday night by trying to steal third base with the Red Sox down one run late — it helps us all appreciate not only that he shares some mortal genes with the rest of us, but also that he bounces back so quickly.Like yesterday during the Red Sox’ 6-1 victory over the Houston Astros, Betts knocked in half his team’s runs with two doubles and a sacrifice fly.
