SEATTLE —The Seattle Mariners have struggled to score at home this season, so
this one was particularly nice. Alex
Smith Jersey
. Casper Wells hit a go-ahead, three-run double with
two out in the seventh inning and the Mariners beat the slumping Baltimore
Orioles 6-3 on Monday night. Miguel Olivo and Dustin Ackley added back-to-back
homers in the eighth as the Mariners rallied to win their first game of the
season against Baltimore. “You get a starter late in the ballgame there youre
hoping you get a mistake or a pitch to hit and I think we got a couple of those
but the fact of the matter is you still have to hit them,” Seattle manager Eric
Wedge said. “I think thats been our biggest issue. I dont think its been a
situation of we havent had pitches to hit.” Scoring at Safeco Field has been a
constant problem all season for Seattle. The six runs were the Mariners most at
home since June 16 and only the second time they reached that number in Seattle
since May 21. While the Mariners lineup has been respectable on the road, they
entered Monday night hitting below .200 at home. Seattle appeared to be headed
for more of the same until it used a pair of walks, a single and Wells clutch
hit to move in front against Jason Hammel (8-4) in the seventh. Being better in
circumstances like the seventh was something Wells focused on when he was
demoted to the minors in late May. “In big situations before I would try and do
too much and in situations now I focus on being aggressive and getting a good
pitch to hit and its been successful so far,” Wells said. Ackley started the
seventh with a walk and stole second when Hammel struck out Chone Figgins on a
3-2 pitch. Ackley advanced to third on Munenori Kawasakis single, but
Brendan Ryan fouled out when catcher Matt Wieters made the catch at the edge of
the top step of the Mariners dugout. Ichiro Suzuki walked to load the bases and
Wells followed with a liner that gave Seattle a 4-3 lead. Wells picked up his
first RBIs since June 20 at Arizona and atoned for striking out with a runner on
second in the third inning. “I did exactly what I wanted, started him with a
fastball away and then a slider off the plate, what we had been doing all
night,” Hammel said. “He changed his approach and went out and got it.” Olivo
hit his seventh homer against Troy Patton and Ackley drove the next pitch over
the wall in right for his fifth of the season. It was the second set of
consecutive homers this season for Seattle. Chris Davis hit a three-run shot off
Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma in the fourth, but that accounted for all of
Baltimores offence. After Davis 14th homer, the Orioles got just three
baserunners against Iwakuma, Steve Delabar (2-1), Shawn Kelley and
Tom Wilhelmsen. Delabar worked two innings, striking out three. Kelley struck
out a pair in the eighth and Wilhelmsen worked the ninth for his seventh save in
eight chances. Seattle took a 1-0 lead in the third when the unlikely trio of
Figgins, Kawasaki and Ryan—none of whom entered the night hitting higher than
.186—combined to plate the first run. Figgins led off with a single, moved up
on Kawasakis sacrifice and scored on Ryans single to centre. Ryan was stranded
at second and Seattle wasted another opportunity in the sixth. Wells one-out
single was followed by John Jasos double that should have been caught by
Steve Pearce in left, but glanced off his glove. With runners at second and
third, Kyle Seager hit a tapper in front of the plate and Olivo struck out.
Iwakuma was making a spot start with Kevin Millwood still nursing a sore groin
that has twice forced him to leave starts early in the past month. Iwakuma threw
five innings, giving up just three hits. But he made the one critical mistake to
Davis on a 1-0 pitch. “I thought he did a really nice job today. One bad pitch
got him, but he settled down and kept pitching out of that,” Wedge said. “A lot
of people asked what I expected out of him and I said just give us a chance to
win the ballgame.” NOTES: The Mariners had three Japanese players in the
starting lineup—Suzuki, Kawasaki and Iwakuma—for the first time in major
league history. ... Seattle signed first-round draft pick C Mike Zunino. Zunino
was taken with the No. 3 overall pick in Junes amateur draft. He will be
introduced at a news conference on Tuesday. ... Newly acquired Baltimore DH

- Marc-André Dorion of St. Hubert, Que., has become the third member of McGill
Universitys national champion mens hockey team, to sign a contract to play
professional hockey. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound defenceman inked a two-year pact
this week to play for EHC Linz, recently-crowned champions of the Erste Bank
Eishockey Liga, the top league in Austria. Dorion, a 24-year-old physical
education senior, led all CIS defencemen this season with 39 points in 28 league
games, good enough for seventh place in the CIS scoring race. Overall, he
registered an 8-43-51 record in 45 contests, becoming the first rearguard in
history to lead the Redmen in scoring. Perhaps his most impressive statistic
however was that he was assessed only four penalty minutes during the regular
season, a remarkable accomplishment for a blue-liner. One of the most decorated
hockey players in school history, Dorion was voted MVP of the OUA East
Conference and earned CIS defenceman-of-the-year honours for the second time in
three seasons. He achieved all-Canadian status for the third consecutive
campaign, received the Bobby Bell Trophy as Team MVP and the D. Colin Kaepernick Black Jersey. S. Forbes
Trophy as McGills male athlete of the year. He will graduate as McGills all-time
top-scoring rearguard with a 38-154-192 record in 174 games overall. ”Marc-André
is an elite CIS defenceman who excels at both ends of the ice. Hes also an
outstanding student and a well-respected leader within our team,” says McGill
bench boss Kelly Nobes about his graduating alternate captain, who was honoured
by the CIS last fall as one of the Top 8 Academic All-Canadians in the country,
achieving a sessional grade point average of 3.78 out of 4.00 in physical
education and health. He also made the Principals Student-athlete Honour Roll In
2009, he received the Prix d Excellence Guy Lafleur for his outstanding
achievement in academics and hockey. Dorion, who helped Canada claim bronze at
the 2011 world university winter games in Turkey, has had NHL tryouts with
Phoenix (2011), Toronto (2010) and Dallas (2008). ’ ’ ’
