 is 2nd in MLB amongst catchers with 18 home runs…the club record for HR by a catcher is 19 by Miguel Olivo in 2011.
LATELY 
…the Mariners are 9-2 over the last 11 games, going from 3 games over .500 (56-53) to a season-high 10 games over .500 (65-55)…during this stretch the club is batting .271 (95x351) with 28 extra-base hits (2B-13, 3B-2, HR-13) and averaging 5.3 runs per game (outscored opponent 58-21)…pitching staff has a 1.82 ERA (20 ER, 99.0 IP) and .208 opponent batting average during this span.

3 OR LESS RUNS ALLOWED
…the Mariners have not allowed more than 3 runs in any game this month, stretching the club-record streak to 12 consecutive games…the current streak bests the 9-game streak from June 1-11, 2009…tied for the 2nd-longest in the American League since 2000 behind the Royals (13, 2013) and Angels (12, 2012 & 12 in 2002).
HISTORIC PITCHING
…the Mariners pitching staff leads the Majors with a 2.95 ERA (355 ER, 1083.0 IP)…current mark is on pace to shatter the current club record of 3.54 set in 2001…the last American League team to finish a full season with a sub 3.00 ERA was the 1974 World Series Champion Oakland  A’s…Mariners relief pitchers lead the AL with a 2.34 ERA (2nd in MLB) and starters lead the league with a 3.27 ERA (3rd in MLB)…since June 21 team ERA is 2.36 with a .207 opponent batting average.
PAXTON’S PERFORMANCE
James Paxton
 is 5-0 with a 1.93 ERA (10 ER, 46.2 IP) and is averaging 8.29 strikeouts per 9.0 IP (43 K) in his 8 MLB starts…the 1.93 ERA is the lowest in club history through the first 8 starts of a career, besting a 2.33 mark by
Felix Hernandez
 in 2005 and 2.45 by Michael Pineda in 2011 (lowest 9-start mark is 2.16 by Pineda).
STREAKER
…as noted above,
James Paxton
 has a 5-game winning streak to begin his Mariners career…that’s the longest streak for a starter, but is tied for the 2nd-longest streak by any Mariners pitcher; Eric O’Flaherty won his first 7 decisions in relief (May 4-Aug. 1, 2007)…Paxton is tied at 5 with Julio Mateo (6/5-26/04) and Roy Corcoran (7/9-9/10/08).
ROAD WARRIORS
…at 31-23 (.574) Seattle has the 3rd best road record in the Majors behind the Dodgers (40-26/.606) and the Orioles (35-24/.593).
3 (OR 4) IS THE MAGIC NUMBER
…when scoring 3 or more runs, the Mariners are 59-17 (.776)…when scoring 4 or more runs, the Mariners are 48-10 (.828)…on the flip side, the Mariners have scored 2 or fewer runs in 44 of 120 games (6-38).
ON A JET PLANE
…this is Seattle’s 10th road trip of the season, traveling to Detroit, Philadelphia and Boston for 9-games…marks the Mariners fifth trip to the Eastern Time Zone this season…the Mariners will log approximately 5,140 flight miles this trip, and will have flown over 43,000 miles this season at the conclusion of this trip…the Mariners will fly a MLB-high 51,540 miles this season, compared to 26,691 flight miles by the Tigers.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY 
…today is the second anniversary of
Felix Hernandez
’s perfect game, a 1-0 win over Tampa Bay in Seattle.
CONSISTENT CANO
Robinson Cano
 hit his 10th home run Monday night, becoming the 38th player to open his career with 10 consecutive seasons with double-digits in home runs (last: David Wright & Matt Holliday, both 2004-2013)…also became the 15th second baseman with 10+ home runs (as a 2B) in 10+ seasons in his career…former Mariner Bret Boone did it 11 times, 5 times with Seattle.
DID YOU KNOW?
…that the Mariners are 26-14 (.650) in the first game of a series this season?...according to
Stats, Inc.
 that’s the best winning percentage in MLB...Seattle boasts a 2.85 ERA (115 ER, 363.2 IP) in the 40 series-opening games, and has outscored its opponents by 70 runs (194-124)...both those marks are also tops in Major League Baseball.
