KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Luis Castillo, fresh off signing a rich contract with Seattle, got chased as the Kansas City Royals erupted for 11 runs in the sixth inning and a wild, 13-12 win Sunday that cost the Mariners a chance to move up in the AL wild-card standings.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Cal Raleigh homered and drove in three runs as the Seattle Mariners rallied for a 6-5 win over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night.
The Mariners have won two of three after dropping five of six as they added to their lead over the Baltimore Orioles for the third and final wild-card spot, moving four games ahead with 11 to play as the Orioles fell to Houston Saturday.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cal Raleigh didn't even get to Seattle's dugout following the game before manager Scott Servais wrapped him up in a big hug.
One catcher to another.

Ty France added three hits, including his 16th homer, and scored three runs with two RBIs.
SEATTLE (AP) — While Robbie Ray was again dominant against a potential playoff foe, there was a more important development for the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani turned in his usual strong start. Long after he was gone, things were anything but normal.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Right-hander Ken Giles was designated for assignment Friday by the Seattle Mariners, who had signed the reliever last year when he was recovering from Tommy John surgery.

And sometimes he comes up with a clutch hit or two as a reminder he's still pretty good player.

Torrens singled with one out in the 13th inning to score Eugenio Suárez, and the Mariners beat the New York Yankees 1-0 on Tuesday night in a game dominated by the starting pitching of Gerrit Cole and Luis Castillo.
SEATTLE (AP) — Dr. Anthony Fauci was presented with an honorary Hutch Award on Tuesday night prior to the Seattle Mariners' game against the New York Yankees.

HOUSTON (AP) — Seattle star rookie Julio Rodríguez was placed on the injured list with a bruised right wrist Sunday after being hit by a pitch a night before.

The Seattle Mariners optioned Upton to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, and the veteran refused the assignment and chose to become a free agent for the second time this season.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Julio Rodríguez and Ty France are headed to the All-Star Game, so they won't be among the Seattle Mariners getting the break their manager says they need.
Yeah, Scott Servais knows that time off thing sounds a little funny.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Ty France hit a two-run single in the eighth inning as the Seattle Mariners rallied from a four-run deficit and beat the Texas Rangers 6-5 on Thursday night, extending their winning streak to 11 games.

SEATTLE (AP) — Julio Rodríguez claimed not taking a peek at where his 12th home run of the season finally came to rest.
Maybe he should have. Not many homers at T-Mobile Park land where the 21-year-old deposited his latest longball.
SEATTLE (AP) — A trio of Seattle Mariners regulars were suspended Monday for their brawl with the Los Angeles Angels, and another went on the injured list after being hurt in the melee.

SEATTLE (AP) — At the rate he's going, Logan Gilbert is going to find himself pitching in Los Angeles at the All-Star Game a month from now.
Seattle's young right-hander tossed six smooth innings and combined with three relievers on a four-hitter in the Mariners' 5-0 win over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

HOUSTON (AP) — Astros reliever Héctor Neris whizzed a pitch at Mariners slugger Ty France, and Seattle manager Scott Servais led his team toward a melee at home plate. Both sides shoved and shouted — except for cool-headed 21-year-old Julio Rodriguez, who wrapped up Neris in his arms and pulled him safely away from the scuffle.
SEATTLE (AP) — Kyle Lewis homered for the second straight game, Julio Rodríguez got three more hits and the Seattle Mariners defeated the Houston Astros 6-0 on Saturday night.
Logan Gilbert tossed seven impressive innings of four-hit ball as the Mariners won consecutive games for the first time since a four-game winning streak from April 22-26.
SEATTLE (AP) — After being shut down by Justin Verlander twice already this season, the approach by the Seattle Mariners this time around was to be overly aggressive.
“I said it to the club before the game, ‘If it looks like you can hit it hard, swing at it.
SEATTLE (AP) — Less than two months into the season, the Seattle Mariners are quickly trending toward irrelevance in a season that started with expectations of ending the longest playoff drought in the major leagues.
SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners activated former AL rookie of the year Kyle Lewis from the injured list Tuesday, nearly a year after he last played in a major league game.

NEW YORK (AP) — Seattle Mariners reliever Erik Swanson was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday with right elbow inflammation, leaving the team without one of its top arms in the bullpen.

NEW YORK (AP) — Paul Sewald had been waiting for this moment since the New York Mets cut him after the 2020 season.
“They gave up on me, so it was pretty nice to get a little revenge today,” the Seattle reliever said.
NEW YORK (AP) — Rather than make his Citi Field debut against the team that traded him, Jarred Kelenic was demoted to Triple-A Tacoma by the Seattle Mariners on Friday after the team arrived in New York for a weekend series against the Mets.
SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners are calling up top pitching prospect George Kirby to take the fifth spot in the rotation and he'll make his major league debut on Sunday against Tampa Bay.
