MARINERS NOTES:

·    The Mariners lost to the Twins today 5-4 after a walk-off triple by Ryan Doumit in the bottom of the ninth inning off Tom Wilhelmsen…despite the loss, Seattle is still 14-6 over their last 20 games (since start of 2011) against the Twins…Jason Bay and Kyle Seager connected on back-to-back home runs in the first inning today, the third time this season the Mariners went back-to-back, the last being May 18 at Cleveland.

·    Aaron Harang allowed two runs, one earned, on four hits and two walks while striking out four in 6.0 innings…Harang has allowed just one earned run in his last 15.0 innings (0.60 ERA)…he also has 12 strikeouts and four walks in those 15.0 innings…despite having just three wins, Harang has allowed three-runs-or-less in five starts this season…today marked his first career start at Target Field, his 31ststadium to make an appearance in in his 12-year career.

·    Jason Bay (2-for-5) hit his seventh home run of the season with a first inning solo shot…he followed it up with a solo shot in the seventh inning…it was his 17th career multi-home run game, with the last coming July 5, 2011 at Los Angeles-NL…Bay has four home runs in his last five games, all four being solo homers…the four homers are his only hits over those five games…four of his 10 career hits against the Twins are home runs…in fact, all but two of his career hits against Minnesota are for extra-bases (3 doubles, 1 triple, 4 home runs)…the homers for Bay came as the starting left fielder for the Mariners, the 16th and 17th homers by the M’s left fielder, which are most among all positions (next: 11 by right fielders)…it was also the 36th home run by a Mariner outfielder, a mark that leads all MLB teams (next: Colorado, 29 coming into today)…his first home run today was the 450th career home run in Target Field history.

·    Kyle Seager (2-for-5) hit his seventh home run of the season with a first inning solo shot following the solo home run by Bay…it marked the Mariners third back-to-back home run combo of the season, with the last coming May 18 at Cleveland…with the homer he extended his current hit-streak to five games, since May 28…over the five games he is hitting .350 (7-for-20) with a double and a home run…he has also reached base safely in each of his last seven games.

·    Michael Saunders (2-for-4) collected a hit in his first road game since May 22 at Los Angeles-AL, a span of three hitless games (0-for-11)…he came into today hitting just .082 (4-for-49) in his last 14 games overall…today marked his seventh multi-hit game of the season.

 

TWINS NOTES: ­

·    The Twins defeated the Mariners 5-4 after a walk-off triple scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning off Tom Wilhelmsen…it was the Twins second walk-off win of the season, the other being April 3vs. Detroit when Eduardo Escobar drove in two runs with a double in the bottom of the ninth inning…the walk-off triple was the first walk-off triple by a Twin since Lew Ford did it on August 3, 2005 vs. Oakland…Twins are 5-3 against AL West opponents this season.

·    Ryan Doumit (3-for-5) tripled in the bottom of the ninth inning, driving in two runs in the Twins 5-4 walk-off win over the Mariners…it was Doumit’s third career walk-off hit and sixth career triple…he also doubled in the sixth inning today for his 11th double of the season and 170th career double…11 of his 37 hits this season are doubles and 18 of the 37 are extra-base hits…five of his last seven hits are for extra-bases as well (two home runs, two doubles, one triple).

·    Caleb Thielbar earned his first career win with a scoreless top of the ninth…it came in his sixth career appearance…he has yet to allow a run in 7.1 innings.

·    Kevin Correia allowed four runs on seven hits, two walks and three home runs while striking out three in 6.2 innings…he has allowed three home runs in back-to-back outings…today marked the second time in his career to allow three homers in two straight games, the other: July 18-25, 2005…he is the first Twins starter to allow three homers in consecutive starts since Carl Pavano September 16-25, 2010…he threw 110 pitches today, the most since throwing 111 on September 14, 2009…in fact, he has only thrown 110-plus pitches seven times in his career…the Twins went 4-1 in Correia’s first five starts and have gone 2-4 in his last six.

·    Chris Parmelee (1-for-3) singled in his second plate appearance today after walking in his first plate appearance…he has at least one hit in four straight games, seven of his last eight games and eight of his last 10 games…over his last 10 games he is hitting .379 (11-for-29) with two home runs, a double and four RBI.

·    Brian Dozier (1-for-3) singled in the tying run in the sixth inning today…the single extended his current hit-streak to six games, tying his career-high, done twice previously…over those six he is hitting .320 (8-for-25) with a home run and two RBI.
