Worth noting

• An update from STATS, Inc.: The 42 consecutive batters retired by the Mariners from the ninth inning of Tuesday's win over the Rays to the fifth inning of Friday's victory over the Twins was the longest such stretch by a Major League team since 1947.

Included in that span, of course, were the 27 outs by Felix Hernandez in his perfect game. The previous long was 40 by the Rangers in 1996 and Pirates in 1959.

• After struggling to hit at home early in the season and having their batting average under .200 for much of the first two months, the Mariners have gradually pulled their Safeco Field average up to .214 with their latest stretch of games.

Seattle still ranks last in the AL in scoring at home at 3.13 runs per game, though it averaged 4.2 per game over the last 13 games going into Monday's series opener with the Indians.
