It seemed inevitable. But not to this scrappy Seattle ball club. The Mariners scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth and tied the game in the sixth inning, scoring five runs with two outs to knot the score at 8-8. But alas, the Reds scored two runs in the eighth inning off of Nick Hill and the Mariners last effort comeback came up short. Cole Gillespie drove in...

Robinson Cano is not in the line-up for the second straight day. The all-star second baseman underwent a root canal after Wednesday's game and isn't feeling too great. Corey Hart is in the line-up and playing right field. Manager Lloyd McClendon said Hart will play around five innings. "At some point, he had to get out there," McClendon said. "He's moving pretty good. Hopefully, he comes out of it pretty good." If you look at the outfield, it certainly could be situation where they have essentially four starters - Dustin Ackley, Michael Saunders, Corey Hart and Abraham Almonte. With...

PEORIA, Ariz. — John Stearns stepped down Friday morning as the Mariners’ third-base coach in order to concentrate on his recovery from hernia surgery.

brightcove.createExperiences(); DJ Peterson talked with the media following today's game. Peterson got an RBI single in the seventh inning, spurring a three-run rally. "It felt great just to have the opportunity after the big injury I had," he said. "For the skip to give me a chance to come up here and play was truly a blessing. It felt good. It felt awesome. I didn't square it up as I wanted to, but I got the monkey off my back." Peterson's first season as a pro was cut short after he was hit in the face by a fastball, shattering his jaw. He wears a...
Fernando Rodney, the Mariners’ new closer, pitched an inning Thursday, his first Cactus League appearance. He allowed a run and two hits and said he felt “great.”

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Admit it, the first thing you want to know about Fernando Rodney, the Mariners’ new closer, is why he chooses to wear his cap cocked toward his left ear, right? Well, here you go: “That sometimes confuses the hitter, too, when it’s turned,” he said. “The hitter looks for your eyes. It’s like a dog. When you go somewhere, the first thing (a dog) looks at is your eyes and how you move. “If you move straight back, he (relaxes and) is OK. So I try that, sometimes, (with the hitter) to move quick (toward the plate). They … Read more »
