Kyle Seager hit two huge home runs Tuesday, including a grand slam, and had six RBI in the Mariners' 7-6 win over the Rays in 10 innings.

Seager had an RBI single in the first inning, but that was just the beginning. The third baseman hit a grand slam in the eighth and blasted a game-winning solo homer in the 10th. Seager has nine homers and 29 RBI to go with a .281/.328/.497 line.

Fernando Rodney allowed three runs to take a blown save against the Rays on Tuesday, earning the win instead.

It actually could have been worse for Rodney, as he allowed two runs before even recording an out. After Evan Longoria's two-run double, Rodney pulled it together, but he wasn't able to hold onto the lead. Rodney now owns an unsightly 6.98 ERA and 1.71 WHIP, and the Mariners may be forced to look elsewhere for saves shortly.

J.A. Happ registered a quality start but didn't factor in the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs over six innings against the Rays.

Happ gave up seven hits and a walk in the outing. He struck out three in the game. The southpaw hasn't won since May 9, but he still hasn't lost since April 17. Happ remains 3-1 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.22 WHIP. He'll try to get his next win Sunday against the Indians.

Danny Hultzen has been placed back on the disabled list at Double-A Jackson with shoulder fatigue.

The hope is that he'll be ready to rock after two weeks of rest. Hultzen, the second overall pick in the 2011 MLB Amateur Draft, is still working his way back from 2013 rotator cuff and labrum surgery.

Austin Jackson (hamstring) will start in center field and bat leadoff Tuesday against the Rays in his return from the disabled list.

Jackson has been sidelined since May 3 with a sprained right ankle. He returns to a .242/.294/.326 batting line over 25 games.
May 26 - 3:05 PM

Mariners activated OF Austin Jackson from the 15-day disabled list.

Jackson batted only .263/.333/.289 over nine rehab games for Tacoma, but he's feeling healthy and that's really all the Mariners care about. The veteran outfielder had been sidelined since early May with a sprained right ankle.
May 25 - 10:26 PM

Mariners optioned RHP Danny Farquhar to Triple-A Tacoma.

Farquhar has been a disappointment this season, posting a 6.46 ERA and 1.56 WHIP over 20 relief appearances. He'll try to iron out his issues at Triple-A before rejoining the bullpen at some point.
May 25 - 10:20 PM

Fernando Rodney worked a stress-free ninth inning to pick up his 13th save in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Rays.

Rodney got two ground outs before Joey Butler reached base on a single to shallow right field, but he was able to get Evan Longoria to fly out to end the game. The veteran closer has been anything but a sure thing taking the mound in the ninth inning, but he's now 13-for-14 in save chances with a 5.89 ERA and an 18/8 K/BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings.
May 25 - 10:16 PM

Roenis Elias continued to pitch well in Monday's win, holding the Rays to a lone run in six innings of work.

It's the third start in a row in which Elias has limited the opposition to exactly one run while pitching at least six innings. He worked around six hits and three walks while striking out six. The only run came on a Logan Forsythe solo home run in the sixth inning. Elias will bring a 2.56 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and a 31/12 K/BB ratio over 38 2/3 innings into a home start against the Indians over the weekend.
May 25 - 10:14 PM

Mike Zunino went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win against the Rays.

Zunino padded the Mariners' lead to 4-1 with a ninth-inning solo home run off of Brandon Gomes. He hasn't done much at the plate, batting a meager .185/.244/.379 with six home runs and 14 RBI.
May 25 - 10:05 PM

Robinson Cano had two RBI singles in four at-bats Monday as the Mariners won against the Rays.

Cano plated the Mariners' first run in the first inning, then added insurance in the eighth. The second baseman had gone hitless in three consecutive games. He's still batting a disappointing .253/.295/.337 with one home run and 13 RBI.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that the club will make a decision on when Austin Jackson (ankle) will be activated "sometime this week."

The Mariners will end a string of six straight games on artificial turf on Wednesday, so the team could decide to just activate Jackson at the beginning of an 11-game homestand on Thursday. He's been out since early May with a sprained right ankle. "I'm told he's moving pretty good, so we'll see," McClendon said.
May 25 - 7:17 PM

Austin Jackson (ankle) went 1-for-4 with a run scored in his eighth rehab game Sunday with Triple-A Tacoma.

And he went 3-for-5 with a walk on Saturday. Jackson should return from the disabled list early this week, perhaps as soon as Monday. The 28-year-old center fielder has been out since May 3 with a right ankle sprain.
May 25 - 9:12 AM

Taijuan Walker was touched up for four runs over just 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Things started out well enough for Walker, as he held the Jays off the scoreboard for the first four innings. That's when things unraveled, with both Ryan Goins and Edwin Encarnacion taking him deep in the fifth. Walker walked four on the day while yielding six hits. The youngster will take a disappointing 7.33 ERA into next weekend's start against the Indians.
May 24 - 4:10 PM

Kyle Seager singled and belted a solo homer in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

He scored the Mariners' only two runs of the game, going deep in the second and then scoring on a sac fly in the seventh. Seager is starting to heat up, having homered in back-to-back games and while hitting .311 with five longballs over his last 16 contests.
