05/12/2019   Seattle PI Mariners

BOSTON (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have placed right-hander Félix Hernández on the 10-day injured list with a strained right shoulder, a day after he became the 36th pitcher in major league history to reach 2,500 strikeouts.

The 33-year-old Hernández is 1-4 with a 6.52 ERA and did not make it out of the third inning in a 9-5 loss to the Red Sox on Saturday, getting tagged for seven runs and six hits in 2 1/3 innings. He has allowed 14 runs in his last two starts over 7 1/3 innings and is 0-4 since winning his first start of the season.

He collected his milestone strikeout when he got rookie Michael Chavis looking with a 92 mph sinker.

They also optioned outfielder Braden Bishop to Triple-A Tacoma.

To fill the spots on the roster, they recalled right-hander Dan Altavilla from Double-A Arkansas and selected the contract of right-hander Parker Markel from Tacoma.

05/11/2019   Seattle PI Mariners

BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have scored eight runs in the third inning against the Seattle Mariners at Fenway Park.

It's the second time in just over a week that they've had at least eight in an inning. Last Saturday, they scored nine — also in the third — against the Chicago White Sox in a 15-2 victory.

Entering the inning trailing 4-1, Boston scored its runs on six hits. Sandy Leon's three-run homer — after failing to lay down a safety squeeze — landed in the Green Monster seats to cap the scoring.

During the inning in Chicago, Boston collected 10 straight hits. It was one off the major league record set by the Colorado Rockies in a 17-2 win over the Chicago Cubs at Coors Field on July 30, 2010.
