Worth noting

• After Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Red Sox in 15 innings, the Mariners are tied with the White Sox for the most extra-inning games in the Majors this season at 16. The Mariners have played five games longer than 12 innings, while no other AL team has more than three of 12 innings or more.

All the overtime hasn't paid off too well, as Seattle is 6-10 in extra innings, 1-4 in games of longer than 12.

• Right-handed reliever Stephen Pryor returned from a six-day layoff and gave up five runs on five hits without getting an out in Triple-A Tacoma's 8-0 loss to Omaha on Wednesday. Pryor was making his fourth rehab appearance as he returns from a torn muscle behind his right shoulder. The 23-year-old had not allowed a run in 23 innings over 19 previous games with Tacoma over several stints since his Triple-A debut on May 8, 2012.
