--RHP Shawn Kelley has faced a bases-loaded situation four times this year. Opposing hitters are 3-for-4 against him in those spots with two home runs, including one by Oakland DH Scott Hairston Sunday.
--2B Jose Lopez's RBI single in the first inning Sunday gave him 84 RBIs for the season. That's just five shy of his career record of 89 set in 2008. He homered both Friday and Saturday and has 21 homers, a career best.
--DH Ken Griffey Jr.'s left knee inflammation has continued longer than the Mariners had thought it would. For now, the plans are for him to play Wednesday in Anaheim, but that remains tentative.
BY THE NUMBERS: 33 of 34. The Mariners are off Monday after having played on 33 of the previous 34 days (they flew from Seattle to Detroit on the one off day). Seattle was 18-15 in that stretch.
