Worth noting

• Outfielders James Jones and Stefen Romero combined to score six runs in the top two spots of the order in Monday's 12-5 win, the first time in Mariners history a pair of rookies each scored three or more runs in the same game.

• The Mariners hit three home runs in both Sunday and Monday's games, the first time since June 2-3, 2011 they have hit a trio of bombs in back-to-back outings at Safeco Field.
