--RHP Brandon League has taken losses in each of his last three appearances, and Thursday's was the toughest of all. The Mariners took a 1-0 lead on the Orioles into the bottom of the 12th inning, but League gave up a single to Derrek Lee, then hit Vladimir Guerrero and Adam Jones before J.J. Hardy delivered a one-out, game-winning, two-run single.

--LHP Jason Vargas turned in one of the best games of his career Thursday, pitching nine shutout innings against the Orioles in Camden Yards. Vargas has never thrown a shutout, and he didn't get credit for one this time, either, because the Mariners wound up losing 2-1 in 12 innings.

--RHP David Pauley is tied for the big-league lead for most 2011 relief appearances of three or more innings. In the three three-inning appearances, Pauley hasn't allowed a run.

--RF Ichiro Suzuki's single to open the 12th inning extended his hitting streak at Camden Yards to 15 games. It appeared that hit would lead to the Mariners' first win on the road trip, but after C Miguel Olivo singled home Ichiro for a 1-0 lead, the Mariners lost the game in the bottom of the 12th.

--OF Ryan Langerhans joined the Class AAA Tacoma on Thursday and went 0-for-1 coming off the bench. He cleared waivers Wednesday and accepted a minor league assignment.

BY THE NUMBERS
5 -- Consecutive games in which the Mariners have turned at least two double plays.

QUOTE TO NOTE
"He's been great for us all year, but he's not going to be perfect." -- Manager Eric Wedge, on RHP Brandon League, who has taken losses in his last three appearances.
