Mariners Log: M's fall to Angels on Segura's ninth-inning error

The Mariners went 6-3 on their road trip and have won 11 of their last 15 away from home

Hisashi Iwakuma has been out since early May with shoulder troubles, Felix Hernandez is in his second stint on the disabled list and Paxton could be joining him.

The Mariners have already used a whopping 15 different starting pitchers in 2017 and losing Paxton for any length of time is worrisome as they find themselves in the thick of a playoff race.

"Yeah, just another rare injury that's pretty uncommon with pitchers, but that's what we're dealing with and we'll have to treat it as we go", Paxton said. Nolasco is 1-0 with a 2.79 ERA in three starts against the Mariners this season, stands 2-4 with a 3.88 ERA in eight career turns and has served up three homers to both Cruz (8-for-22) and Robinson Cano (7-for-21). "I've said it over and over". "I was looking for a pitch to hit".

In three minor league seasons in the Seattle organization, he is 17-10 with a 2.72 ERA in 59 games.

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.

James Paxton went on the 10-day disabled list Friday for the second time this season.

Paxton was pulled in the middle of an at-bat to Kole Calhoun.

The Angels took the first lead of the game in the second inning on Jefry Marte's fourth homer of the season off a sinker that didn't quite have enough action.

The maximum limit for a rehab assignment is 20 days for a non-pitcher. Cruz seems to be trying to will the team to wins, but too many mistakes doomed them in this one.

The renewed desire for fresh arms in the Mariners' bullpen meant right-hander Andrew Moore was likely headed back Saturday to Triple-A Tacoma no matter what happened Friday against the Los Angeles Angels.
