• Mariners manager Eric Wedge usually stacks the lineup with right-handers when facing a left-handed starter. Saturday against reigning National League Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw was no different.

"We're left-handed heavy to begin with, so when we face a left-handed starting pitcher, we've got to switch it up," he said. "Just have a better chance to compete, just have a little better balance in our lineup."

• Seattle's Major League club wasn't the only one in the organization to put forth outstanding pitching efforts on Friday. Erasmo Ramirez took a no-hitter of his own through 7 2/3 innings for Triple-A Tacoma, while Double-A starter Danny Hultzen threw eight innings of two-hit ball.
