The Mariners went to the bullpen for Yoervis Medina. Brian Dozier pushed the lead to two runs with a sacrifice fly before Median closed out the inning. The Mariners chased Hughes later in the eighth after one-out singles by Michael Saunders and James Jones put the tying run on base with Robinson Cano coming to the plate. Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire opted for Casey Fein to get the left-on-left matchups against two All-Stars, Cano and Seager. Fein never got to Seager; Cano bounced into, yep, another double play. Gardenhire called it the biggest out of the night. The Mariners are 0-for-22 with runners in scoring position since Brad Millers RBI double in the 14th inning of Saturdays 3-2 victory in Chicago. They are 2-for-36 in their last five games. Its baseball, McClendon said.
