#115: Mariners Fumbling, Flailing On Road Trip

After blowing a five-run lead and losing 6-5 Friday night with Felix Hernandez on the mound, the reeling Mariners try to get right Saturday against longtime nemesis Dan Haren.

GAME: Mariners (51-63, 4th, AL West, – 15.5 GB) at Angels (60-53, 3rd, AL West, – 6.0 GB). GAME #: 115. SERIES: 2nd of 3 games. MEETING: 9th (Angels lead 6-2). WHEN: Saturday, 6:05 p.m., Angel Stadium, Anaheim. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (Seattle, 2-3, 4.20) vs. RHP Dan Haren (Los Angeles, 8-8, 4.44). STREAKS: Mariners L 5; Angels W 1. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KTTH 770-AM (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.

The Mariners, who blew a 5-0 lead with Felix Hernandez on the mound, allowed a rare two-run sacrifice fly, then lost to the Angels Friday (6-5) on a walk-off wild pitch by Josh Kinney, will be required to officially stop scratching their heads at 6:05 p.m. Saturday.

The Mariners, 1-6 on their nine-game road trip, will send Hisashi Iwakuma to the mound to oppose Dan Haren, historically a Mariner killer. Iwakuma fanned 13 against Toronto two starts ago, but imploded against the Yankees in his last outing. Haren isn’t having his greatest year, but he’s facing Seattle. A closer look:

MARINERS: RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (2-3, 4.20 ERA, 1.41 WHIp)

Hisashi Iwakuma

The 31-year-old Iwakuma, in his first major league season, makes his seventh start and first against the Angels.

In 2008, Iwakuma was named the Pacific League Most Valuable Player and also named an NPB All-Star.

Iwakuma played in the 2004 Olympics and in the 2009 World Baseball Classic, where he won a gold medal.

  • April 27: Michael Saunders joined Donnie Scott (April 29, 1985) and Jimmy Presley (April 8, 1986) as the only Mariners to hit two home runs in a game in the ninth inning or later (solo homer in the 9th, grand slam in the 10th).
  • April 30: When both Miguel Olivo and Jesus Montero homered, it marked the first time in franchise history that two players had homered in the same game as a catcher.

  • May 9: When John Jaso batted leadoff against Detroit, it marked the first time since 1978 that a catcher had hit first for the Marines (Bob Stinson). Oddly, lefty Jaso led off against Tiger lefty Drew Smyly.

  • May 30: Mariners defeated Texas 21-8, just the third time in franchise history they have scored 20 or more runs in a game. The Mariners, with 20 hits, became the first team since 1880 to score 20 runs in a game in the same season it also go perfect-oed.
  • June 8: Kevin Millwood and five relievers collaborated for the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history in a 1-0 win over the Dodgers at Safeco Field. Millwood (6.0), Charlie Furbush (0.2), Stephen Pryor (0.1), Lucas Luetge (0.1), Brandon League (0.2), and Tom Wilhelmsen (1.0) tied the MLB record for most pitchers used in a no-hitter (Houston vs. the Yankees June 11, 2003). It marked the third no-hitter in Mariners history.
  • June 18: Aaron Hill of Arizona hit for the cycle in the Diamondbacks’ 7-1 win over the Mariners. Hill singled in the first (Hector Noesi), tripled in the third (Noesi), doubled in the fifth (Noesi) and homered in the seventh (Shawn Kelley).
  • June 19: Ichiro reached 2,500 hits (first-inning single) in the fourth-fewest games in major league history during a 12-9 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. His 2,500th hit came in his 1,817th game. Al Simmons had 2,500 hits in 1,784 games, Ty Cobb in 1,790 and George Sisler in 1,808 . . . When Kyle Seager and Brendan Ryan both hit three-run homers in the fifth inning, it marked the first time since July 30, 2003 vs. Detroit that the Mariners had a pair of three-run bombs in the same inning.
