GAME: Athletics (36-38, 3rd, AL West, – 9.0 GB) at Mariners (31-44, 4th, AL West, – 14.5 GB). GAME #: 76. SERIES: 2nd of 3 games. MEETING: 9th (Mariners lead 5-3). WHEN: Tuesday, 7:10 p.m., Safeco Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: LHP Travis Blackley (Oakland, 1-2, 3.89) vs. LHP Jason Vargas (Seattle, 7-7, 4.66). STREAKS: Mariners L 2; Athletics W 2. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.
With their 1-0 loss to the Oakland A’s Monday, the Mariners have dropped 10 of their past 15 and gone 23 consecutive innings without scoring a run, dating to the fourth inning at San Diego Saturday. Safeco Field, where the Mariners will engage the A’s Tuesday night, is hardly conducive to an offensive breakout, given that Seattle averages a meek 3.0 runs per game in the facility and is hitting just .203 there this season.
Jason Vargas, Seattle’s starter Tuesday, doesn’t offer much encouragement. He’s lost three in a row, allowed 19 earned runs in those games and given up eight home runs. Vargas will contest Travis Blackley, a one-time Mariner whom the Athletics converted into a starter earlier this season after they acquired him from San Francisco. A closer look:
MARINERS: LHP Jason Vargas (7-7, 4.66 ERA, 1.22 WHIP)
The 29-year-old Vargas, in his seventh major league season and fifth with the Mariners, will make his 17th start and third against the Athletics. Vargas had a no-decision against Oakland March 29, defeated the Athletics 7-3 April 6 and is coming off a 14-10 loss to Arizona in a game in which he surrendered five home runs.
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 35-46, 4.55 ERA, including 29-38, 4.27 ERA with the Mariners.

ATHLETICS: LHP Travis Blackley (1-2, 3.89 ERA, 1.04 WHIP)
The 29-year-old Blackley, technically in his third major league season and first with the Athletics, will be making his fifth start and first against the Mariners. Blackley is coming off a no-decision in Oaklands 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers June 21.
A native of Melbourne, the 6-3, 205-pound Blackley signed with the Mariners in 2000 as an amateur free agent.He pitched in the Mariners system until July 4, 2004 when he made his major league debut in Seattles 8-4 win over the Texas Rangers. Blackley allowed four earned runs on six hits and collected the victory.
The often-injured Blackley stayed with the Mariners until April 1, 2007, when they traded him to the San Francisco Giants for Jason Ellison. Blackley pitched in only two games for San Francisco, then spent the next four years in the minor leagues.
During that time, Blackley was signed and released by the Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Mets, Oakland As and San Francisco Giants. Blackley has never won more than one game in a season at the major league level.
- 2012: Blackley started the year with Fresno, a Giants affiliate. San Francisco waived him May 15 and he signed with Oakland. Blackley worked in relief for the Giants, but the Athletics made him a starter. Blackley had his best start June 15 when he beat the San Diego Padres 10-2, allowing two earned runs.
- LAST START: June 21, took a no-decision in Oaklands 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers; allowed one earned run on three hits in 8.0 innings; struck out six and didnt walk a batter.
- LAST VS. MARINERS: Never pitched.
- CAREER VS. MARINERS: No record.
- AT SAFECO FIELD: 1-1, 9.95 ERA in three starts, covering 12.2 innings (all of Blackleys starts came in 2004 when he pitched for Seattle); five strikeouts to nine walks; seven home runs.
- LOVES/HATES TO FACE: Chone Figgins Mariners who had faced Blackley; 1-for-2.
Athletics 1, Mariners 0
AT SEATTLE (June 25:): Tommy Milone (8-5), the first Oakland rookie to win eight games before the All-Star break, allowed seven hits, struck out five and didn’t walk anyone in Oakland’s 1-0 victory over the Mariners, blanked for the second consecutive game. Seth Smith hit a first-pitch fastball from Erasmo Ramirez (0-2) 418 feet to center field with one out in the second inning to provide all the offense. It was his eighth homer of the season. “He was outstanding,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said of Ramirez. “I thought his focus was tremendous. He did a great job of keeping the ball down.”Their guy (Milone) pitched a great ballgame, too. He was spotting the ball as good as we’ve seen a left-hander spot the ball this year. Inside, outside, good arm action with his change-up.”

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).
- June 19: Ichiro reached 2,500 hits (first-inning single) in the fourth-fewest games in major league history during a 12-9 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. 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 . . . 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 in the first inning.
