Blanco slam backs Hernandez in M’s win

Henry Blanco hopped on a cross-country flight from Miami first thing Friday morning for his fresh start out West with the Seattle Mariners — still a big leaguer as he approaches his 42nd birthday in August.

Saunders sharp in M’s win

Mike Zunino hit his first career home run on a tiebreaking solo shot in the seventh inning and the Seattle Mariners held on for a 3-2 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Vargas benefits from Mariners fireworks

SEATTLE – Justin Smoak hit a three-run, tie-breaking home run in the sixth inning to lift the Seattle Mariners to a 4-2 victory over Oakland on Monday night. The victory gave Jason Vargas (10-13) his career-high 10th victory. He worked eight innings, allowing one run on five hits, walking none and striking out a career-high 10.

Michael Pineda, Seattle Mariners silence Oakland Athletics

OAKLAND, Calif. – Justin Smoak could not have picked a better time to break out of his worst slump of the season. His seventh-inning double to the right-field corner Monday afternoon put Seattle ahead for good in a 2-1 win over the Oakland Athletics and helped Smoak’s offensively challenged team end quite a slump of its own. This comeback victory to support more stellar pitching by Michael Pineda gave the Mariners consecutive wins for the first time in more than a month.

In Brief: Wizards hand resting Celtics overtime loss

NBA: The Boston Celtics didn’t play four of their usual starters, essentially setting aside their bid for a better playoff seed for the chance to give their top players some rest, and the result was a 95-94 overtime loss to the Wizards on Monday night in Washington that handed the Miami Heat the No. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference. Boston’s loss, combined with Miami’s 98-90 win over Atlanta, guaranteed the Heat will finish second and the Celtics will place third.

Fister, Mariners break skids

OAKLAND, Calif. – Doug Fister won for the second time in nearly four months, Adam Moore homered and the Seattle Mariners broke out of a long scoring slump to beat the Oakland Athletics 7-5 on Tuesday night. Fister (5-11) scattered five hits over five innings and pitched out of several jams while leading the Mariners to their first win at the Coliseum since Opening Day. Seattle had lost six straight in Oakland since then.

First-inning assault does in Mariners

OAKLAND, Calif. – Three pitches in, it was obvious Jason Vargas and the Mariners were in for a long day. In actuality, the two-hour, 19-minute holiday yawner, which the Mariners lost 6-2 to the Oakland Athletics, seemed a whole lot longer. But with Seattle’s offense clunking along at record-low pace, the Monday matinee was effectively done on a first-inning home run by Coco Crisp and a following triple by Daric Barton.
