WHEN: Wednesday, 12:40 p.m., Chase Field, Phoenix. PROBABLE PITCHERS: LHP Jason Vargas (Seattle, 7-6, 3.95) vs. RHP Trevor Cahill (Arizona, 5-5, 3.08). STREAKS: Mariners W 1; Diamondbacks L 1. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.
With their 12-9, 10-inning win Tuesday, a victory fueled by Ichiro’s 4-for-5 and two RBIs and a pair of three-run bombs by Kyle Seager and Brendan Ryan, the Mariners have a chance to pick up their 11th series win when they close out a three-game set with Arizona Wednesday.
The Mariners, who have a 10-12-1 series record, are 7-4 in rubber games this season and will send Jason Vargas to the mound in an attempt to make them 8-4. Vargas is 2-0 in his career against the Diamondbacks, but hasn’t started against Arizona since June 20, 2009.
Vargas will oppose RHP Trevor Cahill, who is 3-0 with an 0.77 ERA in his last three starts. A closer look at the probables:
MARINERS: LHP Jason Vargas (7-6, 3.95 ERA, 1.16 WHIP)
The 29-year-old Vargas, in his seventh major league season and fifth with the Mariners, will make his 16th start and first against the Diamondbacks. Vargas is coming off a 4-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants at Safeco Field.
A native of Apple Valley, CA., the 6-0, 215-pound Vargas was selected in the second round of the 2004 amateur draft by the Florida Marlins.
He made his debut with Florida July 14, 2005, pitching one inning of relief in a 13-7 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Mariners acquired Vargas as part of a three-team swap Dec. 11, 2008, when the New York Mets sent him along with Mike Carp, Ezequiel Carrera, Endy Chavez, Maikel Cleto and Aaron Heilman to the Mariners. The Mariners sent Sean Green, J.J. Putz and Jeremy Reed to the Mets.
The Mariners also sent Luis Valbuena to the Indians. The Mets sent Joe Smith to the Indians, who sent Franklin Gutierrez to the Mariners.
Vargas, the only lefty in Seattles starting rotation, has a career record of 35-45, 4.45 ERA, including 29-37, 4.15 ERA with the Mariners.

DIAMONDBACKS: RHP Trevor Cahill (5-5, 3.08 ERA, 1.24 WHIP)
The 24-year-old Cahill, in his fourth major league season and first with the Diamondbacks, will be making his 14th start and first against the Mariners. Cahill is coming off a 5-0 shutout over the Los Angeles Angels.
A native of Oceanside, CA., the 6-4, 220-pound Cahill attended Vista High School in Vista, CA. The Oakland Athletics selected Cahill in the second round of the 2006 amateur draft.
Cahill pitched in the Oakland system until April 7, 2009, when he made his major league debut against the Los Angeles Angels. Cahill worked five innings, allowed earned runs on five hits with one strikeout and a walk.
Cahill went 10-13 in his rookie season and posted the best year of his major league career in 2010, going 18-8 with a 2.97 ERA (fifth in the AL), a performance that earned him a spot on the American League All-Star team.
Cahill went 12-14 with a 4.16 ERA in 2011 when he made a league-high 34 starts. Following the season, the Athletics traded him with Craig Breslow and cash to the Diamondbacks for Ryan Cook, Collin Cowgill and Jarrod Parker.
Cahill pitched for the USA at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and earned a bronze medal.
Cahills best pitch is his sinker, the main reason he induces so many ground balls. He also has an effective 12-6 curveball.
- 2012: Cahill has pitched into the seventh inning in five of his 13 starts. He had his best outing June 3 at San Diego when he threw a complete-game, 6-0 shutout over the Padres with five strikeouts. He has not allowed more than four earned runs in any game.
- LAST START: June 15 at L.A. Angels, won 5-0; worked 7.0 innings, allowed three hits and fanned a season-high eight batters with two walks.
- LAST VS. MARINERS: Sept. 27, 2011, defeated Seattle 7-0 for his 12th and final victory of the season; allowed four hits over 7.0 innings, struck out seven and walked one.

Mariners 12, Diamondbacks 9
AT PHOENIX (June 19): Ichiro led off the game with his 2,500th career hit and finished 4-for-5 with two doubles, two RBIs and two runs scored and the Mariners outlasted the Arizona Diamondbacks in 10 innings. Ichiro capped the Mariners’ three-run 10th inning when he used his classic inside-out swing to slice a double just inside the left-field line a few feet past the third-base bag, easily scoring Casper Wells to put Seattle in front 12-9. Wells hit a pinch-hit, two-run single off side-winding right-hander Brad Ziegler to give the Mariners an 11-9 lead. Justin Smoak, Brendan Ryan and Kyle Seager homered for the Mariners, who have won three of their past four. Charlie Furbish (3-1) struck out four over two scoreless innings for the win and Tom Wilhelmsen struck out the side in the ninth for his fifth save. Seager and Ryan had three-run homers in the fifth inning.

- MARINERS VS. DIAMONDBACKS: Mariners are 14-6 all-time vs. the Diamondbacks, including 7-2 at Safeco Field and 7-4 in Arizona. Mariners won the last season series played vs. Arizona, 3-0 in 2009.

- LOG: Ichiro’s four-hit game was his second of the season and his first since the season opener in Tokyo. It was also the 228th four-hit game of his major league career . . . Ichiro reached 2,500 hits (first-inning single) in the fourth-fewest games in major league history. His 2,500th hit came in his 1,817th game. Al Simmons had 2,500 hits in 1,784 games, Ty Cobb in 1,790 and George Sisler in 1,808 . . . “I’ve broke many records in the past 12 years,” Ichiro said. “When I first got here in 2001 if I said my goal was to get 2,500 hits, people would say that I’m crazy. But now you look at it, thinking back, things do come true. Just like that first day there’s still a passion inside to perform.” . . . When Kyle Seager and Brendan Ryan both hit three-run homers in the fifth inning, it marked the first time since July 30, 2003 vs. Detroit that the Mariners had a pair of three-run bombs in the same inning. In that July 30, 2003 game, John Olerud hit a three-run homer and Randy Winn a grand slam as part of a nine-run first-inning outburst against the Tigers . . . Casper Wells is 9-for-17 with a homer and four RBIs since he was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma June 13 . . . Mariners relievers had allowed only one run in their past 19 innings before giving up four runs in their first two innings Tuesday . . . The Mariners went 5-for-10 with runners in scoring position . . . Seattle starter Erasmo Ramirez allowed five earned runs on seven hits in 4.0 innings . . . Lucas Luetge allowed his first earned run of the season Tuesday night, snapping his string of appearances without allowing one at 25 . . . Two former Mariners factored in the outcome. Willie Bloomquist went 2-for-6 with a triple and an RBI and J.J. Putz allowed two runs and was the losing pitcher.

2012 RECORDS / MILESTONES
- April 24: Catcher Miguel Olivo matched the franchise record when he was charged with three passed balls in a 7-4 win at Detroit. Jerry Narron let three balls get by him Oct. 4, 1980, and Jeff Clement did likewise Aug. 10, 2008 (Clement was catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey).
- April 27: Michael Saunders joined Donnie Scott (April 29, 1985) and Jimmy Presley (April 8, 1986) as the only Mariners to hit two home runs in a game in the ninth inning or later (solo homer in the 9th, grand slam in the 10th).
- April 30: When both Miguel Olivo and Jesus Montero homered, it marked the first time in franchise history that two players had homered in the same game as a catcher.
- May 2: Ichiro set a club record for most putouts by a right fielder in a nine-inning game, registering 10 in a 5-4 loss at Tampa.
- May 3: The Mariners featured a lineup at Tampa Bay that included seven left- handed hitters and two switch-hitters. It marked only the third time in club history that the Mariners used an all left-sided lineup. Others: Aug. 13, 1983 at California and Aug. 9, 1983 at Oakland.
- May 5: Combined one-hitter by Felix Hernandez and Steve Delabar vs. Minnesota was the 13th in Mariners history. Ten have been thrown by one pitcher, three combined. Most recent combined: Michael Pineda, Jeff Gray and Brandon League vs. Tampa, July 30, 2011. Most recent by one pitcher: Jarrod Washburn, July 6, 2009.
- May 9: When John Jaso batted leadoff against Detroit, it marked the first time since 1978 that a catcher had hit first for the Marines (Bob Stinson). Oddly, lefty Jaso led off against Tiger lefty Drew Smyly.
- May 8: Kevin Millwood’s 2-0 shutout marked his first in nearly nine years. He did not surrender his first hit until there were two outs in the sixth. Millwood’s gem marked only the fourth time in 1,440 games at Coors Field that an opposing pitcher held the Rockies to two hits or less while shutting them out. Millwood’s complete game also was the first by a Mariner in 2012.
- May 27: The pinch-hit grand slam allowed by Felix Hernandez to Alberto Callaspo marked just the sixth against the Mariners in 35 years, and the first since May 6, 1988 when Pat Sheridan of Detroit hit one off Mike Jackson.
- May 30: Mariners defeated Texas 21-8, just the third time in franchise history they have scored 20 or more runs in a game. The Mariners, with 20 hits, became the first team since 1880 to score 20 runs in a game in the same season it also go perfect-oed.
- June 8: Kevin Millwood and five relievers collaborated for the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history in a 1-0 win over the Dodgers at Safeco Field. Millwood (6.0), Charlie Furbush (0.2), Stephen Pryor (0.1), Lucas Luetge (0.1), Brandon League (0.2), and Tom Wilhelmsen (1.0) tied the MLB record for most pitchers used in a no-hitter (Houston vs. the Yankees June 11, 2003). It marked the third no-hitter in Mariners history.
- June 18: Aaron Hill of Arizona hit for the cycle in the Diamondbacks’ 7-1 win over the Mariners. Hill singled in the first (Hector Noesi), tripled in the third (Noesi), doubled in the fifth (Noesi) and homered in the seventh (Shawn Kelley).
