Worth noting

• When both Miguel Olivo and Jesus Montero homered in Monday's 3-2 loss, it was the first time in Mariners history that two different catchers went deep in the same game. Olivo started behind the plate and hit a home run in the second inning, then Montero replaced him at catcher when Olivo was injured in the ninth and the rookie homered in the 11th inning.

That situation has happened six times in the Majors since 2000, the last being Oct. 3, 2009, when Victor Martinez and Dusty Brown did it for the Indians.

• Going into Tuesday's game, 14 of the Mariners' last 18 runs had scored on home runs in the previous five outings.

• Felix Hernandez allowed one run in eight innings on Monday, but wound up a with a no-decision, the third time this season he's allowed one earned run or less in eight innings with nothing to show for it.
