#149: Mariners Punished Again For Bedard Trade

Chris Tillman and Adam Jones, two of five players Seattle sent to Baltimore in the Erik Bedard debacle, collaborated to hand the Mariners a 10-4 loss at Safeco Field Monday.

GAME: Orioles (83-64, 2nd, AL East, – 0.5 GB) at Mariners (70-78, 4th, AL West, – 18.0 GB). GAME #: 149. SERIES: 2nd of 3 games. MEETING: 8th (Orioles lead 6-1). WHEN: Tuesday, 7:10 p.m., Safeco Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: LHP Wei-Yin Chen (Baltimore, 12-9, 4.00) vs. RHP Erasmo Ramirez (Seattle, 1-2, 3.49). STREAKS: Mariners L 2; Orioles W 2. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: ESPN 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network

Monday night’s 10-4 trouncing by the Baltimore Orioles sent the Mariners 18 games behind Texas in the AL West race, the farthest back Seattle has been all season. At 70-78, it would requite a near miracle for the Mariners to finish with a .500 record, especially considering that every team they play the rest of the way remains in playoff contention.

Manager Eric Wedge said Monday that he will not use the remainder of the season to play prospects.

“We are going to field our best lineup,” Wedge said. “It doesn’t mean we’re not going to still play some of these young kids, because on a particular day, we feel like that might be it.”

Wedge will take a second look at Erasmo Ramirez Tuesday following his recall from AAA Tacoma. Ramirez notched his first major league win in his last outing. He will oppose LHP Wei-Yin Chen, who took a no-decision in the club’s 14-inning win over Tampa Bay Thursday, striking out seven in 7.1 innings. A closer look:

MARINERS: RHP Erasmo Ramirez (1-2, 3.49 ERA, 1.06 WHIP)

Erasmo Ramirez

The 22-year-old Ramirez, in his first major league season, will make his sixth start, his second since his recall from AAA Tacoma, and his first against the Orioles. Ramirez, who has had a pair of relief appearances since his recall, is coming off a 4-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Center Sept. 11.

A native of Rivas, Nicaragua, the 5-11, 205-pound Ramirez came to the Mariners in 2007 as an amateur free agent. He began his professional career in 2008 with the Mariners entry in the Venezuelan summer league. He also pitched for the club in 2009, posting an 11-1 record.

That earned him a promotion to Class A Clinton of the Midwest League in 2010, when he went 10-4. Ramirez pitched for AA Jackson and AAA Tacoma in 2011. He went a combined 10-8.

Ramirez made his major league debut April 9, working in relief of Hector Noesi in an 11-9 Texas win over Seattle at Rangers Ballpark. He pitched 3.0 innings and allowed one run on two hits and surrendered a home run. He did not factor in the decision.

After allowing earned runs in each of his first three appearances, he did not allow any in his last four. The Mariners had seen enough to send him down to Tacoma in order to build him back into a starter. When the Mariners had seen enough of Blake Beavan’s troubles, they farmed him out and recalled Ramirez June 12.

During Ramirez’s June 30 start against Boston, Ramirez suffered a right flexor elbow strain and had to come out of the game. The Mariners subsequently placed him on the 15-day disabled list. When he was healthy enough to pitch, he was sent to Tacoma. In 15 starts for the Rainiers, Ramirez went 6-3, 3.72. Ramirez worked one inning of relief against Oakland Sept. 7.

  • LAST START: Sept. 11 at Toronto, won 4-3; two earned runs on six hits over 7.0 innings; six strikeouts to one walk; 90 pitches, 66 for strikes; no home runs.
  • LAST VS. ORIOLES: Never faced.
  • CAREER VS. ORIOLES: No record.
  • AT SAFECO FIELD: 0-2, 3.00 in six games, including three starts, covering 21.0 innings; 18 strikeouts to four walks; 7.7 strikeouts per nine innings; one home run.
  • LOVES/HATES TO FACE: Ramirez never faced the Orioles.

ORIOLES: LHP Wei-Yin Chen (12-9, 4.00 ERA, 1,24 WHIP)

Wei-Yin Chen

The 27-year-old Chen, in his first season in the major leagues, will make his 30th start and second against the Mariners. Chen took a no-decision in Baltimore’s 5-4 win over Seattle July 3 at Safeco Field. He has two losses and two no-decisions in his past four outings and is coming off  a no-decision against Tampa Bay Sept.

A native of Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, the 6-0, 195-pound Chen signed with the Orioles as an amateur free agent Jan. 10. Prior to joining the Orioles, Chen pitched for the Chunichi Dragons in Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) from 2004-2010.

Chen won the 2009 Central League ERA title with the lowest ERA (1.54) since the 1968 season. Chen had Tommy John surgery at the end of 2006 season.

In addition to his time with Chunichi, Chen pitched for the Chinese Taipei national team in the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games.

Chen throws a fastball that is usually around 90-92 mph (tops out at 96 mph). The best breaking ball in his repertoire is a mid-80s slider.

Chen made his major league debut April 10 against the New York Yankees at Camden Yards. He received a no-decision after allowing two earned runs on seven hits in 5.2 innings. He struck out six and walked one and allowed one home run.

  • 2012: Chen has worked into the seventh inning in 12 of his 29 starts. He has his best outing June 17 against Atlanta when he defeated the Braves 2-0, scattering six hits over 6.0 innings. Chen was shelled seven times, most recently Sept. 7 when the Yankees battered him for seven earned runs. He has allowed two or fewer runs 17 times.
  • LAST START: Sept. 13 at Camden Yards, took a no-decision against the Yankees; two earned runs on eight hits in 7.1 innings; seven strikeouts to one walk; no home runs.
  • LAST VS. MARINERS: July 3 at Safeco Field, took a no-decision in Baltimore’s 5-4 victory; two earned runs on two hits in 7.1 innings; nine strikeouts, no walks, one home run.
  • CAREER VS. MARINERS: 0-0, 2.45 ERA in one start covering 7.1 innings; 11.0 strikeouts per nine innings; 0.27 WHIP.
  • AT SAFECO FIELD: Same as above.
  • LOVES/HATES TO FACE: The Mariners have had only 21 at-bats, with two hits (Michael Saunders, Casper Wells) against Chen.

2012 RECORDS / MILESTONES

  • April 24: Catcher Miguel Olivo matched the franchise record when he was charged with three passed balls in a 7-4 win at Detroit. Jerry Narron let three balls get by him Oct. 4, 1980, and Jeff Clement did likewise Aug. 10, 2008 (Clement was catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey).
  • 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.

Millwood’s gem marked only the fourth time in 1,440 games at Coors Field that an opposing pitcher held the Rockies to two hits or less while shutting them out. Millwood’s complete game also was the first by a Mariner in 2012.
  • May 27: The pinch-hit grand slam allowed by Felix Hernandez to Alberto Callaspo marked just the sixth against the Mariners in 35 years, and the first since May 6, 1988 when Pat Sheridan of Detroit hit one off Mike Jackson.

  • 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).

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.

Hernandez recorded 12 strikeouts in throwing the third no-hitter in franchise history . . . Mariners became the first team in MLB history to throw a perfect game and have one thrown against them. It was also the first time two have been thrown in the same stadium in one season . . . Of the 22 previous perfect games, six were by 1-0 scores, the last by Roy Halladay May 29, 2010 at Florida. It was also the fourth 1-0 win for the Mariners this season . . .Hernandez became the second Latin American pitcher to do the deed (Nicaragua’s Dennis Martinez for Montreal July 28, 1991, against the Dodgers).

    Thanks for doing this series.  I hope we can get a real history lesson and learn some things about the 60′s, 50′s, 40′s, etc.

    Good series but it’s likely the picture of the stadium is from the 60′s. That looks like a grass field and the Dawgs were playing on Astroturf by 1969 for sure, and it may even have been as early as 68.

    Sixkiller was the Luck of the early 70′s, i am sure if he was a white boy, he would have been picked in the first round. Apparently, race played an integral part during those years.
