Worth noting

• Rookie second baseman Nick Franklin wasn't in the lineup Saturday due to a stiff neck, though manager Eric Wedge said the issue wasn't serious and Franklin would be available to play if needed.

• When Mike Zunino drove in the winning run in Friday's 5-4 victory over the Cubs with a 10th-inning single, he became the third-youngest Mariner ever to record a walk-off hit at 22 years and 95 days old.

The only younger Mariners with walk-off hits were Alex Rodriguez (20 years, 248 days in 1996) and Danny Tartabull (21 years, 317 days in 1984).

• Brad Miller became the eighth Mariner to make his Major League debut when he started at shortstop on Friday, joining Brian Bantz, Franklin, Bobby LaFromboise, Brandon Maurer, Yoervis Medina, Jesus Sucre and Zunino. The only team to have more players make their debut this season is the St. Louis Cardinals with nine.

• Friday's comeback win was the first in 35 chances this season for Seattle when they were trailing after seven innings.
