Father's Day meaningful for Mariners, Red Sox

SEATTLE -- For Mariners pitcher Wade LeBlanc, the "No. 1 Dad" trophy in his locker said it all. For Red Sox manager Alex Cora, the tears in his eyes spoke volumes as well.

Ichiro Suzuki rejoins Mariners on 1-year deal

PEORIA, Ariz. -- The thoughts came carefully, cautiously, as Ichiro Suzuki weighed his words. What does it mean to him to come back to Seattle, to see his storybook career come full circle?

Yankees pounce on errors, defeat Mariners

NEW YORK -- Yankees manager Joe Girardi wasn't around to watch the end of Sunday's 10-1 win over the Mariners after getting ejected in the third inning. But his Seattle counterpart, Scott Servais, might have wished he'd taken an early dismissal as well after watching the Mariners commit five errors in the first inning of the series finale in the Bronx. Three errors on shortstop Jean Segura and… → Read More


Jacoby Ellsbury HRs in Yanks win over Mariners

NEW YORK -- Sonny Gray relished his best start so far for the Yankees, as the man known as “Pickles“ during the ongoing Players Weekend festivities fired seven innings of one-run ball in Saturday's 6-3 victory over the Mariners.

Making his second start since being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma, Bergman allowed just two hits and two walks, while striking out a career-best nine. The right-hander pitched the… → Read More
