Mariners skid reaches eight in 5-2 loss to Astros

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon is right, you know. Things are going get better for his club. They can only get better — can’t they? — after Tuesday’s 5-2 loss to the Houston Astros at Safeco Field Because if this isn’t the bottom…oh, boy. It isn’t just that the Mariners lost for a second...

Tuesday's pregame notes, links and line-ups vs. the Astros

  Sorry about the delay ... the wireless went down at the stadium for a while, but they have it fixed now. Hisashi Iwakuma is pitching a simulated game here at Safeco Field this afternoon. With weather and rain expected in Tacoma, the team decided to keep him at Safeco and control the situation. I'm guessing he will join the Rainiers when they travel to Las Vegas next week where it's nice and warm and never rains. He's also a big fan of buffets and the Wheel of Fortune slots. Not much new with the line-up. Ackley still at No. 2 and Miller batting ninth. I did think we might see Abraham...

Astros bats awaken against King Felix, Mariners

Mariners’ skid hits seven when Astros beat Hernandez

Yes, it’s early. There’s more than a week left in April, but the Mariners still might want to scrounge up some velvet ropes to keep the lines orderly near the panic button at Safeco Field after Monday’s 7-2 loss to Houston. Hyperbole? You judge. The Mariners carried a six-game skid into the start of this three-game American League West cage match against the ever-hapless Astros, who had lost seven in a row (after losing 324 games over the previous three years). But the Mariners had Felix Hernandez on the mound. The King. The best right-hander, arguably anyway, in the game. … ...

Jones back in Tacoma after first MLB experience

Jones back in Tacoma after first MLB experience

James Jones returned to the Tacoma Rainiers for Monday’s game against the Sacramento River Cats after being sent down from the Seattle Mariners to make room for right-hander Brandon Maurer. Jones, a 25-year-old outfielder from Long IslandUniversity, had one at-bat from when he was recalled on April 16 and optioned back before the Mariners’ game Sunday in Miami. He made it count – collecting his first major-league base hit. “It was surreal,” Jones said. “It felt great. I was really thinking about getting the RBI there, but it was a memorable moment.” The experience went by...

Weather may keep Iwakuma out of Tacoma

It’s looking more unlikely that All-Star right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma will not make a rehab start for the Tacoma Rainiers on Tuesday. It’s less to do with him and more to do with the forecast. It’s likely to rain Tuesday and the Mariners organization is unlikely to send Iwakuma to the mound in Tacoma if there’s a chance he’ll injure himself because of it, Rainiers manager Roy Howell said. “We can’t have him slipping or blowing out a groin muscle or pulling a hamstring because the field is wet fielding a bunt,” Howell said. “I would imagine conditions will … Read...

Dustin Ackley moves up to second, Brad Miller down to ninth in Mariners lineup

Adam Jude here filling in for Ryan Divish tonight. Not much time for introductions. I will say I once had a decent curveball, but then I turned 13 and everything went down hill from there. And now I'm a sportswriter.

Ackley moves up to second in order

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon made a couple changes with the lineup again today. Dustin Ackley has been moved from eighth to second. Abraham Almonte remains in the leadoff spot. Brad Miller has been moved to ninth. Here are the updated probables:
