Here is today’s Game Information:

Fernando Rodney – American League All-Star

Rodney

American League All-Star manager John Farrell of the Boston Red Sox announced today, in conjunction with Major League Baseball, that Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney will replace David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays on the A.L.’s active roster for the 85th All-Star Game.

Price, a four-time All-Star who was selected this year by Farrell, will be inactive in the All-Star Game but is invited to attend with full All-Star honors.  Rodney, 37, is now a two-time All-Star.  He and Price, who were then Rays teammates, both represented the A.L. in the 2012 Midsummer Classic.  In his first year in the Pacific Northwest, Rodney has posted a 1.98 ERA and an A.L-leading 27 saves in 37 games.  The Dominican Republic native has struck out 42 batters in 36.1 innings (29 H, 12 BB).  Rodney joins teammates Felix Hernandez, Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager on the A.L.’s active roster.

This is the first time that the Mariners will have at least four All-Star representatives since Ichiro Suzuki, Edgar Martinez, Jamie Moyer, Shigetoshi Hasegawa and Bret Boone represented the team in 2003.

Bark At The Park

The graceful Irish Wolfhound Subie was the biggest dog at Bark At The Park.

The graceful Irish Wolfhound Subie was the biggest dog at Bark At The Park.

With the temperature at game time hovering around 84 degrees for Bark At The Park, there were a lot more “hot dogs” at Safeco Field than usual.

Over 300 dogs and their human companions turned out for the Mariners first-ever Bark At The Park on July 8th (vs. Twins).

There was a lot of sniffing, barking and tail wagging as the dogs and their owners got to know each other. There were plenty of treats, Mariners logoed bandanas, a kiddie pool for cool down, and a patch of soft, green grass where the dogs could take care of their business. A clean-up squad from Poopless in Seattle kept the area spotless.

Dogs came in all sizes and breeds (several indeterminate), from tiny Chihuahuas to an Irish Wolfhound. The Seattle Police and King County Sheriff’s Department bomb sniffing dogs, Dennis and Chase, hung out for a while after they finished their security sweep.

KJR Sports Radio Alum Mike Gastineau and his wife Rene brought their rescue dog Chico, and 710 ESPN’s Jim “Go To Guy” Moore came with Willie and his family.

The night was capped with a brisk walk around the bases after the game.

Our thanks to the corporate partners who made Bark At The Park possible: AvoDerm, Nylabone, Central Garden and Pet, Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation and the Pets Add Life Campaign.
