Worth noting

• Morse had at least one hit in each of the Mariners' first seven games, the first Seattle player to do so since Gutierrez opened with an eight-game hit streak in 2010.

• The Mariners went into Monday's game with home runs in six straight games after not going long in their opener in Oakland. The team had only two streaks of six-plus games with a homer in 2012.

• The Mariners have not made a move with outfielder Casper Wells, who was designated for assignment on March 31. The team has until Wednesday to either trade, release or option him to the Minors if he clears waivers.
