Worth noting

• The Mariners went into Monday's game with the best ERA of any Major League team in Interleague Play history, with a 3.66 ERA in 309 crossover games since 1997. The Yankees are second at 3.75.

• Though the Mariners rank seventh in the American League in road batting average at .253, they're last among the 15 teams in home batting average at .222. One player bucking that trend is Kyle Seager, who was hitting .310 in 33 games at Safeco Field after Sunday's 4-for-4 outing against the Rangers, while batting .215 on the road.
