Lincecum entered the game in the 14th inning with two men on base and a four-run lead. He allowed one run to score on a ground out, but wasn't charged with the earned run. Lincecum then walked Cameron Rupp, but was able to Domonic Brown to ground out to end the game.
Lincecum tossed 2/3 of an inning, giving up one walk. It was the first save of his career.
Mejia has rattled off four straight saves since blowing a save opportunity on July 7, which was also the last time he issued a walk before Tuesday. He owns a 3.80 ERA and 66:32 K:BB ratio in 66 1/3 innings.
deGrom (4-5) has dominated the competition while picking up three straight wins, giving up just two earned runs in 21 innings while striking out 26 and walking three. The impressive stretch gives him a 3.01 ERA and 79:29 K:BB ratio in 80 2/3 innings. deGrom is scheduled to do battle with the Brewers Sunday.
Ramirez (1-5) was making his first start with the Mariners in nearly a month and fared well, but the offense couldn't provide him with enough support to pick up his first win since April 1. He owns a 4.35 ERA and 52:31 K:BB ratio in 60 innings. Ramirez is expected to be sent back down if the Mariners expect Taijuan Walker to stick in the rotation.
Petit lasted five innings, giving up five runs on seven hits. Things started out poorly, as Petit put the first three runners of the game on base. He was able to get three straight outs after that, but not before two runs scored. Petit then settled in, tossing three scoreless innings. In the fifth, Jimmy Rollins ended that stretch with a two-run homer. Marlon Byrd would add an insurance run on a double later in the inning.
With the loss, Petit falls to 3-4 on the year. His next start will come against the Giants.
