#127: Mariners seek recovery after heartbreak

Mariners thrilled by big ninth-inning rally Friday, but closer Tom Wilhelmsen gave it away; Blake Beavan attempts to start another win streak Saturday.

GAME: Mariners (61-65, 4th, AL West, – 13.5 GB) at White Sox (69-55, 1st, AL Central, + 2.5 GA). GAME #: 127. SERIES: 2nd of 3 games. MEETING: 8th (White Sox lead 6-1). WHEN: Saturday, 4:10 p.m., U.S. Cellular Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Blake Beavan (Seattle, 8-7, 5.00) vs. Jose Quintana (Chicago, 5-2, 2.76. STREAKS: Mariners L 1; White Sox W 4. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: ESPN 710-AM (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.

Reflecting on Seattle’s wild, 9-8 walk-off loss to the White Sox Friday night, manager Eric Wedge elected not to dwell on his team’s 65th defeat of the season, or the 22nd loss in 26 games to Chicago, but on the remarkable, six-run ninth-inning rally against the AL Central leaders when winning seemed out of the question.

“It was a great comeback for our guys,” said Wedge. “That’s what I’m thinking about right now. The fight of our position players and what they did to come back was an unbelievable effort.”

The Mariners entered the ninth trailing 7-2 but battled back for an 8-7 lead. After Chicago tied it at 8, the Mariners lost on a fluke: Seattle right fielder Eric Thames caught a Paul Kornerko drive to right center, but collided with center fielder Michael Saunders. The ball popped out of Thames’ glove, allowing the winning run to score.

“It was good because we didn’t quit,” said left fielder Trayvon Robinson, whose 3-for-4 included his first home run of the season. “We went and played every last out we could in this game. We didn’t get the win, but a lot of good things happened. And we’re just going to keep going, just feeding off what we did today.”

The Marinerslget going Saturday with RHP Blake Beavan seeking to build on the 5-1 record he has compiled since his July 17 recall from AAA Tacoma. Beavan will oppose Jose Quintana, who has given up just two earned runs in each of his past three starts, although he has only one win to show for it. A closer look:

MARINERS: RHP Blake Beavan (8-7, 5.00 ERA, 1.25 WHIP)

Blake Beavan

The 23-year-old Beavan, in his second major league season and second with the Mariners, makes his 20th start and second against the White Sox. Beavan suffered a 4-0 loss to Chicago April 21 in his third start of the season and is coming off a 5-1 win over Minnesota Aug. 19 at Safeco Field. Beavan is 5-1 since his July 17 recall from AAA Tacoma.

A native of Irving, TX., the 6-7, 240-pound Beavan was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the first round (17th pick) of the 2007 amateur draft.

After pitching in the minor leagues from 2008-11, Beavan made his major league debut July 3 against the San Diego Padres. He worked 7 IP, allowed three hits, two walks and one earned run in a 3-1 victory at Safeco Field.

Beavan became a Mariner July 9, 2010, when the Rangers traded him, along with Matthew Lawson (minors), Josh Lueke and Justin Smoak to Seattle for Cliff Lee, Mark Lowe and cash.

Beavan had 15 starts for the Mariners in 2011, compiled a 5-6 record, and has a career mark of 12-13, 4.73 ERA.
