- With one Mariner on and one out, the bottom of the fifth ended as J.P Hoonstra of the Daily News describes:
… With (one out) and a runner on first base in the Mariners’ half of the fifth inning, Casper Wells lined a single to right field. Trent Oeltjen couldn’t come up with the catch but Wells mistakenly passed the runner, Michael Saunders, and was immediately called out. Oeltjen’s throw went to first baseman James Loney as Saunders took off for second base. The shortstop, Luis Cruz, didn’t realize that Wells was out and tagged second base with his foot thinking a force play was in effect. It wasn’t, but Saunders took a couple steps off the bag, Cruz tagged him out, and the inning was over.
- Castellanos also completed a game-ending double play, catching a Tim Federowicz throw after a Wells strikeout and making the tag on Saunders.
- Andre Ethier is day-to-day with back stiffness.

It was tough, but somebody has to go if something is going badly, because you can’t get rid of the players.

We took the blame, but somebody had to go.” …
