FIRST THINGS FIRST
...the Mariners are 27-14 (.659) in the first game of a series this season...according to
Stats, Inc.
 that’s the best winning percentage in MLB...Seattle boasts a 2.83 ERA (117 ER, 372.2 IP) in the 41 series-opening games, and has outscored its opponents by 75 runs (201-126)...both those marks are also tops in Major League Baseball.

…Mariners pitchers are a combined 0-for-9 w/2 SO, 1 BB and 4 sac bunts this season...
Roenis Elias
 is 0-for-2 this season, his only 2 career plate appearances.
LO-MO A GO-GO
Logan Morrison
 is batting .317 (19x60) with 4 doubles, a homer and 7 RBI in his last 17 games (July 29-current)...he’s had at least one hit in 16 of the 17 games...Seattle is 13-4 during the same stretch, including 5-0 when Lo-Mo drives in a run.
HISTORIC PITCHING
…the Mariners pitching staff leads the Majors with a 2.94 ERA (362 ER, 1109.0 IP)…club is on pace to shatter the 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 2.39 ERA (2nd in MLB) and starters lead the league with a 3.20 ERA (3rd in MLB)…since June 21 team ERA is 2.37 (119 ER, 452.1 IP) with a .208 opponent batting average.
3 (OR 4) IS THE MAGIC NUMBER
…when scoring 3 or more runs, the Mariners are 61-17 (.782)…when scoring 4 or more runs, the Mariners are 50-10 (.833)…on the flip side, the Mariners have scored 2 or fewer runs in 45 of 122 games (6-39).
2 OR LESS ALLOWED
…the pitching staff has allowed 2 or fewer runs in a Major League leading 56 games this season…next closest AL team is Kansas City with 50…Mariners are 43-13 (.768) when allowing 2 or fewer runs in a game, with the 13 defeats the most in the Majors.
 AS YOU (MAY) KNOW
Kyle Seager
 had 3 RBI yesterday, including driving in
Robinson Cano
 twice, but
DID YOU KNOW?
…that Kyle has now driven in Robinson 22 times this season?...Kyle has a total of 77 RBI, so Robinson accounts for nearly 29% of them...last season, no single player drove in Robinson more than 10 times...Robinson has scored 67 runs so far this season; finished 2013 with 81.
