Worth noting

• Franklin Gutierrez went 0-for-3 with two walks on Saturday for Triple-A Tacoma in a 5-3 victory over Colorado Springs. The outfielder is hitting .215 in 41 games during his extended rehab stint as he deals with hamstring problems.

James Paxton allowed six hits and three runs (two earned) in seven innings, but didn't figure in the decision as reliever Forrest Snow picked up the win. Paxton is 7-10 with a 4.26 ERA in 25 games this season.

• The Mariners have a 28-25 record against the American League West going into Sunday's game. They're 7-5 against the Astros, 8-5 against the A's, 7-6 against the Angels and 6-9 vs. Texas. Seattle hasn't had a winning record against the division since going 31-26 in 2009.
