In case you missed it:
- For the second time in three starts, Felix Hernandez pitched at least seven innings while allowing just two runs.
- The Mariners couldn’t back up the now-rare solid outing from their one-time ace, mustering just a single run on five hits over seven innings against David Price.
- Craig Kimbrel put the tying run on base in the ninth, but he quickly got a strikeout and double play to end it, delivering the Mariners just their third loss in their past 14 games.
