Worth noting

• Logan Morrison has hit .329 (23-for-70) with five doubles, one home run and nine RBIs in his last 20 games going into Friday's series opener. The Mariners were 14-6 in those games, including 6-1 in games where he had an RBI.

• Kyle Seager needs one more home run to reach 20 for the third consecutive year and join Ken Griffey Jr. and Jim Presley as the only Mariners players with 20-plus homers in three of their first four Major League seasons.
