• When Cano delivered an RBI single to cap Seattle's ninth-inning rally Friday, it lifted his batting average in ninth-inning at bats to .429 (18-for-42) on the season.
• Felix Hernandez became the ninth pitcher in MLB history with six straight 200-strikeout seasons when he reached 204 with seven more K's on Friday. Only three pitchers have ever done so at a younger age than Hernandez's 28 -- Walter Johnson (at age 27 in 1915), Sam McDowell (27 in 1970) and Bert Blyleven (25 in 1976). Tom Seaver holds the record with nine straight 200-K seasons.
• First baseman Logan Morrison came down with an illness on Saturday morning, so McClendon had Kendrys Morales at first base and Chavez at DH for the second game of the series.
