Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a walk as the Mariners topped the Angels 2-1 in 11 innings Saturday to stay alive for a wild card spot.

The Mariners won when Grant Green struggled to start a double play on a tailor-made grounder from Austin Jackson in the 11th, allowing Brad Miller to score from third. They'll now send Felix Hernandez to the mound on Thursday with a chance to advance to a one-game playoff on Monday. They'll need to beat the Angels and hope the A's lose to the Rangers.

Logan Morrison homered twice and drove in four runs to lead the Mariners past the Blue Jays 7-5 on Thursday.

The Mariners won on their bullpen day, using nine pitchers to get through nine innings. Morrison supplied the pop, hitting a three-run homer in the fourth and a solo shot in the sixth. He's hitting .328 with five homers in 64 at-bats in September after entering the month with just six homers in 260 at-bats.
Sep 25 - 7:29 PM

Logan Morrison blasted a game-winning three-run homer in the top of the ninth inning to break a 0-0 tie and push the Mariners to a 3-1 win over the Angels on Thursday.

He finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Morrison has now homered in three of his last eight games, a stretch in which he also has a trio of doubles. It's certainly debatable whether Morrison is Seattle's best option at first base versus righties, but he's rewarded the club's patience with a strong September.

Logan Morrison homered and doubled before being removed for a pinch-running Friday against the A's.

Corey Hart is playing better and Justin Smoak is back in the majors, but Morrison is still getting steady starts against right-handers, for better or worse. The homer tonight was his second in three games. Even so, he's hitting just .217 in 217 at-bats against righties this year, compared to .319 in 69 at-bats versus lefties.
Sep 13 - 2:13 AM

Logan Morrison is back in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

Morrison missed Saturday's game due to stomach issues. LoMo has a hit in 20 of his last 21 games and is batting .324/.370/.432 over that stretch.
Aug 24 - 10:42 AM

Logan Morrison is out of the lineup Saturday because of an illness.

Fortunately, the Mariners have walk machine Endy Chavez to fill in at DH. Morrison is day-to-day.
Aug 23 - 11:28 AM

Logan Morrison had a nice night at the plate in Friday's victory over the Tigers, going 2-for-4 with a double, RBI and two runs scored.

Morrison singled home Kyle Seager to get the Mariners on the board and eventually came around to score in the three-run second inning. He's hitting just .231/.285/.361 with six homers and 24 RBI on the year, but has picked up the pace offensively in recent weeks.
Aug 15 - 10:07 PM

Logan Morrison singled in three at-bats in Monday's 11-1 blowout win over Toronto.

Morrison extended his hitting streak to 12 games. In a cruel quirk (or perhaps a fitting quirk), only one of those efforts have been of the multihit variety. LoMo slashed a pathetic .180/.213/.270 in July, but he's improved to a .312 average in August, albeit with only two extra-base hits.
Aug 12 - 1:13 AM

Logan Morrison hit a three-run home run that was the difference in the Mariners' 7-3 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

Morrison hit a three-run shot in the third inning of Braves starter Julio Teheran, his first home run since July 11. It was his only hit in four at-bats. LoMo was plagued by a hamstring injury that kept him out until mid-June, and he's struggled to get on track at the plate since returning. He's got a modest seven-game hitting streak intact, a small sign of progress, and perhaps Wednesday's long ball will lead to a few more finding the seats in the near future.
Aug 6 - 6:51 PM

Logan Morrison doubled in Kyle Seager in the top of the 12th to help the Mariners beat the Angels 3-2 on Saturday.

28 innings in two days for the Mariners and Angels. Morrison's hit put Seattle up 2-1, and the Mariners went on to add an insurance run on Justin Smoak's squibber against the shift. They ended up needing it, as David Freese homered to start the bottom of the 12th. However, Charlie Furbush was able to finish up from there. Morrison is currently hitting .186 in 59 at-bats this month, so he could use a few more big hits to help his job security.
Jul 20 - 1:32 AM

Logan Morrison led the 12-3 bludgeoning of Boston on Monday, going 4-for-4 with two homers, three RBI and four runs scored.

He reached base all five times up, also walking. LoMo's second inning solo homer off starter John Lackey tied the game 1-1, and his three-run bomb off Chris Capuano in the seventh capped the game's scoring. It's difficult to understate how surprising this outburst was. Morrison raised his batting average from .164 to .215, he doubled his homers from two to four, and his OPS took on serious helium, rising from .522 to .712. Despite the outburst, Morrison (.245 career average and 44 homers in 1,356 at-bats) should be relegated to AL-only leagues.
Jun 24 - 1:48 AM

Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Friday's tilt with Kansas City.

The home run was Morrison's fifth of the year. Despite the homer, Morrison is batting just .185/.241/.333 on the season. Those three RBI constituted more than half of his season total.
Jun 21 - 12:22 AM

Logan Morrison is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Padres.

He'll take a seat with left-hander Eric Stults on the hill for Seattle. Jesus Montero will start at first base Tuesday while John Buck serves as the DH.

Logan Morrison (head) is in Monday's lineup against the Padres.

Morrison left Sunday's game after he hit the wall of the Mariners' dugout with his bat and a piece broke off and hit him in the forehead. He suffered a cut as a result, but fortunately the silly incident won't keep him out of the lineup.
