Mariners Update – June 26

We have an early game today, and after finishing the game notes in and getting everything ready for the game, sorry for the late update. Not much to report from last night’s game, but there was one roster move worth pointing out.

  • Kyle Seager and Justin Smoak both homered for the Mariners, giving the club 87 home runs in the first 78 games of the season. The Mariners did not hit their 87th home run until July 28 last season (team game #103).
  • Kyle Seager (Bob & Groz) and Nick Franklin (Wyman, Mike & Moore) were guests of 710 ESPN Seattle. Check out the archived podcasts by clicking on their names.
  • Brad Miller went 1-for-4 for the Tacoma Rainiers, extending his hitting streak to 21 consecutive games. Miller is batting .379 (33×87) during the streak.
  • Brad Miller and Taijuan Walker have been selected to play for the USA squad in the 15th annual SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game to be played July 14 at Citi Field in New York. And for the first time, fans will determine the final player on both the U.S. and World Team rosters by casting their votes in the All-Star Sunday Futures Finalists (#FuturesFinalists) ballot, available exclusively on MLB.com/futuresfinalist and the Club sites. Mariners farmhand and Jackson first baseman Ji-Man Choi is one of five finalists vying for a spot on the World Team.
