• When the Mariners lost 3-1 on Monday to the Orioles, it snapped their seven-game winning streak in games decided by two runs or less.

• While the Mariners have been one of the top-scoring road teams in the Majors this season, that hasn't held true on the current trip. In the first four days of the nine-game trek, Seattle totaled just seven runs (1.75 per game) in three games at Yankee Stadium and one at Camden Yards.

The Mariners averaged 4.87 runs in their first 53 away games prior to this trip.

• Jason Vargas' complete game on Monday was the sixth by a Mariner this season, tied for third in the Majors behind the Tigers and Reds with seven each.
