Worth noting

• Morse became the seventh player in Mariners history to hit at least nine home runs in the season's first 30 games. He is the first since Mike Cameron in 2002 to do that.

• The Mariners hit .302 with 18 extra-base hits on the 5-2 homestand. They had double-digit hits in six of the seven games.

• Justin Smoak is showing signs of a revival. He is five for his last 10 and has doubled in a career-high three consecutive games. His batting average is now .240.
