Mariners ace James Paxton placed on DL, out until September

Mariners back home for series with L.A. Angels

On Friday, the biggest blow yet was delivered.

"We're going to take a look at what's going on with Bud", Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. There are going to be some nights that it works out great.

Paxton, who was named AL Pitcher of the Month for July, left Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Angles in the seventh inning.

That extra base paid off in a big way when Jarrod Dyson slashed a two-out single to left field, a ball Cruz might not have scored on had he not been aggressive moments before. In an ideal world, Dipoto likely envisioned Paxton at the top of Seattle's rotation being just enough for them to sneak into the postseason for the first time since 2001. "We want the guys behind him swinging the bat". He was in a little trouble there in the (fifth). Reliever Blake Parker got Ben Gamel to ground back to the mound and then struck out pinch hitter Yonder Alonso to end the inning. Andrew Moore, the Mariners' recently recalled rookie, replaced Pagan in the sixth inning, which he got through with no problem. That's where we're at right now in our starting pitching.

North Battleford's Andrew Albers is going to be in a pennant chase. Hopefully we had the lead; we did have the lead.

Their latest victory was the product of a rally from a 5-1 deficit in the seventh. They drove in four of the runs.

Question: Why the quick hook on Gonzales and not for Moore?

Snapchat parent Snap Inc.(SNAP), Nordstrom Inc.(JWN), News Corp.(NWS.AU) and Nvidia Corp.(NVDA) will report after the close. Gold futures surged Wednesday, logging their best one-day gain since May, as the US and North Korea exchanged threats.

Though Moore is typically a starter, Servais said he will be in the bullpen. Servais wanted to use Nick Vincent only in a save situation. Tony Zych, Casey Lawrence and Edwin Diaz were unavailable. He allowed only two hits in his first four innings, although one of those hits was a second-inning solo home run to Jefry Marte. "And it's everybody really", Angels' shortstop Andrelton Simmons said.

Add Paxton's pectoral strain to Felix Hernandez's shoulder bursitis, Hisashi Iwakuma's shoulder inflammation and Drew Smyly's Tommy John surgery, and it's hard to picture a playoff scenario where the Mariners take the rest of the American League by storm - or at all. Instead they're trailing the Twins by half a game and are tied with the surging Angels.

"There will be a lot of decisions made that you may scratch your head at", Servais said, "but there is a plan behind it". I thought Gonzales threw the ball really well.

"We have to take advantage of when Mike gets on", Scioscia said.

Danny Valencia, the former full-time first baseman, is batting.268 with 13 homers and 59 RBIs in 105 games while playing strong defense.

Cruz crushed a 1-0 pitch 426 feet over the wall in right center for a two-run homer, making it 3-3.

The Mariners led 5-1 Friday.
