• Mariners catchers were tied for second in the Majors in home runs going into Thursday's game. Miguel Olivo and Jesus Montero each have three home runs while playing behind the plate. The Orioles have seven home runs from their catchers.

• Ichiro Suzuki, 102nd on MLB's all-time hit list, had one hit on Thursday for a total 2,463. Next on the list is Harry Hooper at 2,466.

• Olivo is now walking without any limp and said his sprained groin muscle is recovering much quicker than he initially expected after getting hurt Monday. He'll be examined by doctors in Seattle on Friday.

• Mike Carp is throwing well from the outfield in pregame drills and will likely get some time in left field this weekend when Seattle faces the Twins at Safeco Field.
