• When Brad Miller and Seager swiped bags in Friday's win, it was the Mariners first two-stolen base game since June 29. Seattle is 28th out of 30 MLB teams in stolen bases with 40 in their first 133 games, ahead of only the Cardinals (38) and Tigers (31).

The franchise record for fewest stolen bases in a full season is 81 in 1989 and 2007. The Mariners stole just 48 bases in 1994, but only 112 games were played in that strike-shortened season.
