LAST SEVEN? = HEAVEN
...
Felix Hernandez
 is 4-1 with a 1.33 ERA (54.0 IP, 8 ER) in his last seven starts (dating back to May 18)...he has worked at least 7.0 innings in each of the starts, and has not allowed more than 2 runs in any of the starts...his only loss was a 1-0 setback vs. Texas June 13.
RODNEY SWEEP
...
Fernando Rodney 
 saved all three wins in Seattle’s weekend sweep at KC Friday-Sunday...he’s just the fourth Seattle pitcher (5 times) to save all three games in a 3-game series, joining Mike Schooler (twice: 7/4-6/89 vs. MIN & 9/11-13/89 vs. BOS), Jose Mesa (7/30-8/1/99 vs. BAL) and J.J. Putz (6/8-10/07 at SD).
LAST IS FIRST
…yesterday, the Mariners 6-9 hitters ( 
Zunino, Ackley, Miller, Bloomquist
 ) were a combined 7-for-15 w/2 runs, 2 RBI, 3 doubles and a HR in the teams’ 2-1 win at KC...the top-five in the order were a combined 0-for-17 with 2 walks and a sac bunt.
POW! BAM! ZAP!
Mike Zunino
has homered in his past two games (June 20 & 22), including his go-ahead homer in the 7th yesterday at KC...he now has 9 homers this season, the most of any AL catcher...Zunino has 9 HR in 209 at-bats this season (1:23.2); he had 5 in 173 AB last year (1:34.6).
QUICK TO 20 SAVES
... Mariners closer
Fernando Rodney 
 recorded his 20th save of the season in the Mariners 75th game Saturday at KC...becomes only the 4th closer in club history to record 20 saves in the first 75 games of a season: Kazahiro Sasaki (27 saves in ‘01), J.J. Putz (22 saves in 2007) and Brandon League (20 saves in 2011)...a common bond between the three previous closers to record 20 saves in the first 75 team games is that they were all named All-Stars.
20-20-20-20 VISION
Fernando Rodney 
 notched his 21st save of the season yesterday (in 23 chances)...it is his fourth career 20-save season, and he’s done it with three different teams: 37 in 2009 w/DET, 48 in 2012 and 37 in 2013 w/TB and 21 {and counting} w/SEA in 2014...Rodney now has 106 saves since the start of the 2012 season; only Atlanta’s Craig Kimbrel has more (113).
1-2-3-4
Fernando Rodney 
 has appeared in each of the past 4 games...his combined line: 4.0,3,0,0,1,5; 3-for-3 in save opps & has faced just 15 batters...first time to work in 4 straight games since May 27-30, 2013 and just the third time in his career (also: 8/11-14/12)...has never worked in 5 straight games.
QUICK LEARNER
…Mariners center fielder
James Jones
 made his MLB debut April 18 and is hitting a very respectable .287 (49x171) this season…the first time James sees a pitcher in a game, he’s been held to a .205 (15x73) mark, but after James sees a pitcher once, he is hitting .347 (34x98)…the second time he sees the pitcher in a game, he is 17-for-40/.425; the third time around he is 13-for-40/.325.
1-2 PUNCH
Endy Chavez
 and
James Jones
have settled (often) into the 1-2 spots in the order…this season, Endy is hitting .280 (14x50) w/5 doubles and 2 walks out of the leadoff spot, and James is hitting .348 (23x66) with a double, a triple and 2 walks when he bats second.
MILLER TIME
Brad Miller
has hit in a career-high tying 7 straight games (11x24/.458) with 4 runs, 2 home runs and 3 walks...in his last 22 games (May 29-current) he’s hitting .324 (23x71) w/12 runs, 2B, 3B, 3 HR, 8 RBI and 6 walks...has raised his season average from .151 to .207 during hot stretch.
BULLPEN BULLIES
…the Mariners bullpen has a 1.74 ERA (18 ER, 93.0 IP) over the last 36 games (since 5/14)…allowed 12 earned runs in last 60.0 innings (since May 30)…currently first in the American League with a 2.74 ERA, which would be the best in club history (3.04 in 2001)…
Joe Beimel
 (13.1) and
 Yoervis Medina
 (10.2) have active scoreless streaks of at least 9.0 innings.
GREAT START
Roenis Elias
 allowed 1 ER in 6.2 IP yesterday; Seattle starters have allowed just 11 runs over their last 10 starts spanning 66.0 innings; that’s a 1.50 ERA…have allowed 1 run or less in 9 of the 10 starts…over their last 22 starts (May 31-current), Seattle starters have pitched to a 2.61 ERA (40 ER in 138.0 IP) while limiting opposing hitters to a .224 average (112x501).
 AS YOU KNOW
Felix Hernandez
 heads into tonight with seven consecutive starts of 7.0 or more innings pitched and 2 or fewer earned runs allowed, but
DID YOU KNOW?
…that his streak is tied for the longest such streak in Mariners history?...Randy Johnson also had seven straight games from May 25-June 25, 1994...Felix’s current seven-game streak is the longest active such streak in MLB, and his 11 total 7.0+, 2 ER or less starts are tied for the most in the Majors this season (w/Johnny Cueto, CIN, and Adam Wainwright, STL).
