SEATTLE — The King County Council voted 5-4 Monday to direct $135 million in hotel tax revenue to maintain Safeco Field as part of the Seattle Mariners new lease agreement. King County Executive Dow Constantine’s original proposal had called for spending $180 million in tax revenue for Safeco Field maintenance. The Mariners said $180 million in public funding was needed in order for it to sign a new, 25-year lease at Safeco, while many others said it was money that […]
Mitch Haniger dashed home to score the go-ahead run on a grounder in the eighth inning, then made a diving catch for the final out Sunday that gave the Seattle Mariners a 3-2 win over the New York Yankees.
SEATTLE (AP) — A brawl involving several players broke out in the Seattle Mariners’ clubhouse Tuesday night several hours before a game at Safeco Field. Shortstop Jean Segura, catcher Mike Zunino and other players were involved in the skirmish. Moments after center fielder Dee Gordon politely asked reporters to leave the locker room, the double doors burst open with players shoving and shouting. “Things happen in a clubhouse,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “Our guys are working through it and […]
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — With the September stretch run under way, the Oakland Athletics want to leave nothing to chance when it comes to their playoff hopes. Splitting a four-game series and staying well ahead of the Seattle Mariners mattered so much with both clubs in contention. Stephen Piscotty homered twice and matched his career high with five RBIs as the A’s widened their lead over the Mariners for the second AL wild-card spot, beating them 8-2 Sunday. Oakland moved […]
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Wade LeBlanc pitched seven scoreless innings, Mitch Haniger hit his 23rd home run and the Seattle Mariners jumped on the Oakland Athletics early and held on for a 7-1 victory on Thursday night. Robinson Cano had two hits and an RBI after being dropped down a spot in the batting order after second baseman Jean Segura was scratched. Dee Gordon and Ryon Healy added two hits apiece. Seattle had lost three straight and five of seven […]
SEATTLE – So far, our smoky air won’t force the cancellation of any pro sports in Western Washington on Tuesday night. Keep checking in if you’ve got tickets, however. The Seattle Mariners, Tacoma Rainiers, Seattle Reign and Everett Aquasox all told Q13 News on Tuesday morning that they had no plans to cancel their planned games, but all said they were monitoring the situation. The Mariners are scheduled to play host to the Houston Astros at 7:10 p.m., while the […]
SEATTLE – If the Seattle Mariners have excelled at anything over the past 17 seasons, it may be proving that good is often not quite good enough in Major League Baseball. To that end, 2018 could be their crowning achievement. “It’s a weird year,” Seattle Times Mariners reporter Ryan Divish said Thursday. “Any other year, the Mariners would be set to win the wild card, but it’s just gotten difficult for them.” Sound familiar? Sure, the Mariners have had their […]
OAKLAND, Calif. – Robinson Cano is officially back. The Seattle Mariners announced Tuesday morning that they’d officially reinstated Cano from the MLB restricted list. That means Cano will return from his 80-game suspension for violating baseball’s drug agreement when Seattle plays at Oakland on Tuesday evening. The All-Star second baseman has been out since May 15, though he’s been playing in the minor leagues for the past week. Cano is ineligible for the postseason if Seattle makes it. The Mariners […]
Earlier today, I was simultaneously fixated on two legends: Tiger Woods giving chase at the PGA Championship, and Felix Hernandez, now relegated to the Mariners bullpen, and whether he’d come into a close game against the Astros.
Edwin Diaz was supposed to be off on Sunday after earning saves in each of the last three games for the Seattle Mariners.
