Danny Farquhar allowed three runs in a third of an inning against the Indians in Wednesday's 8-5 loss.

Farquhar was credited with the loss after allowing a double, a triple, a single, and a walk. His defense didn't help him out either. Farquhar will set up for Fernando Rodney and should be a solid source of holds and saves throughout the year.

Danny Farquhar held the Padres scoreless in the ninth inning as the Mariners emerged victorious 7-1 on Thursday.

Danny Farquhar earned his 12th save with a perfect ninth inning against the Royals on Wednesday.

Farquhar took his second loss on August 27 but has responded with three straight scoreless appearances, allowing just two baserunners in those three innings. Along with the 12 saves, the right-hander owns a 71/17 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings.

Danny Farquhar recorded his 10th save Thursday with a scoreless ninth against the Astros.

Danny Farguhar gave up the go-ahead run on a balk and a took a loss Tuesday versus the Rangers.

The balk was far from obvious, but C.B. Bucknor thought something moved and awarded Ian Kinsler the plate. Farquhar had gotten into trouble by allowing back-to-back singles with one out, but he probably would have escaped the inning if not for the balk call.

Danny Farquhar picked up his ninth save by striking out the side in the ninth Wednesday against the A's.

Since his meltdown a week ago in which he retired none of the five hitters he faced, Farquhar has pitched four perfect innings, striking out seven. That loss to Tampa Bay is still his only blown save in 10 tries since he assumed the closer's role.

Danny Farquhar locked down Tuesday's win against the A's by hurling a perfect ninth inning to earn his eighth save of the season.

Farquhar struck out two, his third multi-strikeout game in his last five appearances. The right-hander boasts a 2.16 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio in 8 1/3 innings since he took over the closer's job in early August. If he keeps pitching like this, Farquhar will remain Seattle's closer until season's end.

Danny Farquhar tossed a perfect ninth inning Friday against the Rangers for his sixth save.

Farquhar gave up two runs against the Rays on Wednesday for his first blown save, but there was no drama on Friday, as he got Alex Rios on a ground out and struck out Mitch Moreland and Jurickson Profar. The 26-year-old should continue to be the go-to option in the ninth inning for now.

Danny Farquhar blew his first save opportunity since becoming the Mariners' closer, giving up two runs against the Rays on Wednesday.

Farquhar closed out the Rays on Tuesday with ease but didn't record an out this time around, surrendering four hits and a walk. He'd been a perfect 5-for-5 with eight strikeouts in his previous five save opportunities before Wednesday. Despite the hiccup, he's been good enough in the role that the Mariners should keep coming back to him to secure victories going forward.

Danny Farquhar picked up his fourth save in Sunday's win against Milwaukee.

Farquhar allowed one hit, but was able to get out of the inning without any further damage. He's now converted all four of his save chances since taking over the closer role and has a 4.82 ERA over 37 1/3 innings.

Danny Farquhar picked up his third save by striking out two in a scoreless ninth against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

It was a tremendous day for the Mariners pen, which combined to pitch seven scoreless innings after Aaron Harang's early exit. Farquhar got the ball in the ninth again and did the job, allowing only a single in the process. He's gone eight straight appearances without giving up a run, and it looks like the closing gig will be his until he has a misstep.

Danny Farquhar earned his second save in as many days as the Mariners bested the Orioles on Sunday.

And for the second consecutive day, Farquhar earned a save without allowing a base runner. It's been a fascinating ride for the native Floridian. On July 19, Farquhar's roster spot was in jeopardy with a 7.61 ERA. He's hurled seven consecutive scoreless appearances since, covering 10 2/3 innings. Tom Wilhelmsen was yanked from the closer's job Thursday, when he surrendered four runs without recording an out against Boston. Farquhar will continue to operate the ninth inning in Seattle until he fails. Despite a still-terrible 5.09 ERA, the right-hander owns a spectacular 53/14 K/BB rate over 35 1/3 frames. He needs to be owned in all formats.

Danny Farquhar earned his first save of the season Saturday in the Mariners' 8-4 defeat of the Orioles.

Farquhar entered the game in the eighth inning and finished it out, retiring all four batters he faced -- two via strikeout. The 26-year-old right-hander has rattled off six straight scoreless appearances and could be the Mariners' go-to ninth-inning guy for a bit.
