• Raul Ibanez hit his 68th career home run at Safeco Field on Sunday, extending his lead as the all-time home run leader at the stadium. It also marked his 63rd homer at Safeco as a Mariner, passing Bret Boone (62) for most by a Seattle player.

• Mariners Minor Leaguer Carlos Triunfel hit for the cycle on Wednesday night in the Rainiers' 8-0 victory over Salt Lake, going 5-for-5. He became the first Rainiers player to hit for the cycle since Ibanez did it in 1997 vs. Albuquerque.
