Worth noting

• When the Mariners dropped behind the Yankees and Blue Jays in pursuit of the second American League Wild Card spot after Thursday's loss, it was the first time they'd been out of a playoff position since June 21.

Kendrys Morales is one of just three players in Mariners history with a season batting average of at least .275 with 20 doubles and 10 home runs at Safeco Field, having hit .282 with 21 doubles and 12 homers in 79 games at the ballpark in 2013. The other players to hit those marks were Raul Ibanez (2006 and '08) and Jose Lopez (2008).
