Worth noting

• Wedge said he likes what he's seen from Alex Liddi since he was recalled from Triple-A on Sept. 4. Liddi was in the starting lineup on Sunday for the first time since being optioned on June 12.

"He has looked a little bit better in BP," Wedge said. "His swing's a little bit more together, he's using his lower half better, which allows his hands to work a little bit better."

• The Safeco Field roof was closed during Saturday's contest, marking the end of 31 consecutive games with the roof open. It is the second-longest stretch ever, behind 35 straight contests from June 5-Aug. 28, 2006.

• Kyle Seager (16 home runs and 13 stolen bases) and Michael Saunders (14 home runs and 18 stolen bases) are closing in on becoming the first Seattle teammates to reach the 15 home run and 15 stolen base mark since Bret Boone and Mike Cameron did it in 2003.
