Lloyd McClendon tried to get a five-out save from All-Star closer Fernando Rodney, but that plan didn’t work
Despite a 4-1 loss the Oakland Athletics on Sunday, Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon says he’s extremely pleased with the way his team finished the first half of the season
The Mariners lost their third straight game at home to the Minnesota Twins, falling 4-2 Thursday night despite pounding out 12 hits.
Command problems plagued Roenis Elias in an 8-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins, and he was lifted after a career-low 3 1-3 innings.
Phil Hughes pitched into the eighth inning, Sam Fuld barely cleared the wall with his second home run of the season and the Twins beat the Mariners 2-0 on Tuesday night.
The Seattle Mariners pushed Felix Hernandez’s next start back a day so they can put their ace on the mound for the opener of a big series against the Oakland Athletics.
The Seattle Mariners had just five hits. They left nine runners on base and went 0 for 11 with runners in scoring position. And manager Lloyd McClendon felt much of the blame belonged to his own team
In Tuesday’s 13-2 win, Kyle Seager and Robinson Cano had three RBIs apiece, James Jones added two more and a seven-run sixth inning helped the Mariners score a season high in runs.
Rookie James Jones had a career-high four hits and his second three-steal game in the Mariners 10-4 win.
The Seattle Mariners have reached the midway point in the 2014 season. That means it’s time for report cards.
