Worth noting

• First baseman Mike Carp, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left groin muscle, is expected to begin a rehab stint with Triple-A Tacoma on Monday. Manager Eric Wedge said he'd start out playing designated hitter and gradually work his way back to first base duties.

• Erasmo Ramirez allowed just one unearned run on four hits in 7 1/3 innings when Triple-A Tacoma beat Las Vegas, 4-1, on Saturday. Ramirez, who spent part of the season with the Mariners, improved to 5-3 with a 3.98 ERA in 14 starts for the Rainiers.

• Going into Sunday's game, the Mariners had hit a home run in eight straight games -- with 14 total in that span. Their 75 home runs on the road was the fifth-highest total in the Majors.
