Worth noting

• Opposing baserunners were 0-for-8 trying to steal against Hisashi Iwakuma going into Tuesday's game against the Phillies. In 69 career starts, Iwakuma has allowed only 15-of-30 runners to steal. The most caught-stealings with no successful attempts in a season is nine by the Indians' Luis Tiant in 1968. Tiant went 21-9 with an American League-leading 1.60 ERA that season.

• The Mariners are 11-5 with Austin Jackson hitting leadoff since he was acquired from the Tigers on July 31.

• Kyle Seager entered Tuesday's action tied for ninth in the AL with 77 RBIs. He is tied for fourth with two-out RBIs at 29.
