• Thursday's 8-7 loss to the Red Sox was the Mariners' eighth walk-off loss of the year, tying them with the White Sox for the most in the American League. The Marlins lead the Majors with 10 and the Mets have had nine.
• When Felix Hernandez threw seven innings of one-run ball Thursday, it was his 97th career start in which he's allowed one or fewer runs. Since he arrived in the Majors in 2005, that is the most starts of any pitcher with one or fewer runs, and he's 64-4 with 29 no-decisions in those starts.
