GAME: Red Sox (41-36, 3rd, AL East, – 5.5 GB) at Mariners (33-46, 4th, AL West, – 16.5 GB). GAME #: 80. SERIES: 3rd of 4 games. MEETING: 3rd (series tied 1-1). WHEN: Saturday, 7:10 p.m., Safeco Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Josh Beckett (4-7, 4.14) vs. RHP Erasmo Ramirez (0-2, 4.18). STREAKS: Mariners L 1; Red Sox W 1. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.
The Mariners entered their 10-game home stand batting .203 at Safeco Field, worst home mark in the majors. After the first five games, in which the Mariners have dribbled just five runs across the plate, that average is down to .197, reduced again Friday night when Seattle could only eke out two hits off journeyman Aaron Cook, who had been battered in his past two starts.
Manager Eric Wedge has watched offensive lameness at home all year, but after Friday’s 5-0 loss, in which the only thing of note was that Hector Noesi became the majors’ first 10-game loser, Wedge fumed.
“It’s a step back today for me, offensively, and that’s hard as hell to do the way we’ve been swinging the bats here at home,” Wedge said. “I’m tired of watching. I’m patient and I believe nine times out of 10 you’re rewarded for patience, but there also has to be a sense of urgency with every player in that room.
“We’ll find it. It’s my job to make sure we find it. That’s why I’m here. I have no plans of failing here. We’re going to figure this thing out. We’re going to hit at home like we hit on the road. We’re not there yet, not even close yet, but it will happen.
“Whether it’s the same guys in the room or not, that’s yet to be determined, that’s up to them, but they’re not getting it done now.”
The Mariners, solved by Cook on a scant 81 pitches Friday, will take another stab at getting it done Saturday night. Erasmo Ramirez will hurl for Seattle against Josh Beckett, who tossed a 5-0 win over the Mariners May 15 at Fenway Park. A closer look:
MARINERS: RHP Erasmo Ramirez (0-2, 4.18 ERA, 1.21 WHIP)
In his first major league season, will be making his fourth start following seven appearances in relief. Ramirez made seven starts with AAA Tacoma, going 3-2, 2.11. Ramirez is coming off a 1-0 loss to the Oakland Athletics, the 50th 1-0 loss in franchise history.
A native of Rivas, Nicaragua, the 5-11, 205-pound Ramirez came to the Mariners in 2007 as an amateur free agent. He began his professional career in 2008 with the Mariners entry in the Venezuelan summer league. He also pitched for the club in 2009, posting an 11-1 record.
That earned him a promotion to Class A Clinton of the Midwest League in 2010, when he went 10-4. Ramirez pitched for AA Jackson and AAA Tacoma in 2011. He went a combined 10-8.
Ramirez made his major league debut April 9, working in relief of Hector Noesi in an 11-9 Texas win over Seattle at Rangers Ballpark. He pitched 3.0 innings and allowed one run on two hits and surrendered a home run. He did not factor in the decision.
After allowing earned runs in each of his first three appearances, he did not allow any in his last four. The Mariners had seen enough to send him down to Tacoma in order to build him back into a starter. When the Mariners had seen enough of Blake Beavans troubles, they farmed him out and recalled Ramirez June 12.
- LAST START: June 25 vs. Oakland at Safeco Field, lost 1-0; allowed one earned run on three hits over 8.0 innings and struck out a career-high 10, becoming just the eighth rookie in franchise history to reach double digits in strikeouts.
- LAST VS. RED SOX: Never pitched.
- CAREER VS. RED SOX: No record.
- AT SAFECO FIELD: 0-2, 3.63 ERA in four games, including two starts, covering 17.1 innings; 14 strikeouts vs. four walks; no home runs.
- LOVES/HATES TO FACE: No record.
Ramirez / 2012
- June 14 (L, 0-1): Vs. San Diego at Safeco Field, lost 6-2; allowed five earned runs on eight hits in 5.0 innings; struck out three and walked one; threw 93 pitches, 64 for strikes.
- June 19 (ND, 0-1): In Phoenix, took a no-decision in 12-9 win; allowed four earned runs on five hits over 4.0 innings; struck out five and walked one; two home runs.
- June 25 (L, 0-2): vs. Oakland at Safeco Field, lost 1-0; allowed one earned run on three hits over 8.0 innings and struck out a career-high 10.
RED SOX: RHP Josh Beckett (4-7, 4.14 ERA, 1.14 WHIP)
In his 12th major league season, and seventh with the Red Sox, Beckett will make his 13th start of the season and second against the Mariners. Beckett defeated Seattle 5-0 May 15, is coming off a 4-1 loss to the Miami Marlins and has lost his past three decisions. Beckett is just off the 15-day DL (shoulder inflammation).
A native of Spring, TX., the 6-5, 225-pound Beckett attended Spring High School. The Florida Marlins selected Beckett in the first round (second pick) of the 1999 amateur draft.
Beckett pitched in the Florida system until Sept. 4, 2001, when he made his major league debut in an 8-1 win over the Chicago Cubs. Beckett collected the victory by allowing one hit over six innings.
Beckett pitched for the Marlins from 2001 through 2005, compiling a record of 41-34, 3.46 ERA. On Nov. 24, 2005, the Marlins traded Beckett with Mike Lowell and Guillermo Mota to the Red Sox for Jesus Delgado, Harvey Garcia, Hanley Ramirez and Anibal Sanchez.
Beckett won 15 games with Boston in 2005, 16 in 2007 and became a 20-game winner for the first time in 2007 when he went 20-7, finished second in the Cy Young voting and appeared in his first All-Star Game.
Beckett has pitched in three All-Star Games (2007, 2009, 2011), was the 2003 World Series MVP and the 2007 ALCS MVP.
After winning 20 games in 2007, Beckett has produced just one big year, 2009, when he finished 17-6, 3.86. Last year, Beckett went 13-7, 2.89.
- 2012: Beckett alternated wins and losses in April, won three of his five decisions in May, and has yet to win in June. He has pitched into the seventh inning in nine of his 12 starts, and probably had his best game May 15 when he befuddled the Mariners at Fenway Park.
- LAST START: June 11 at Miami, lost to the Marlins 4-1; allowed four earned runs on six hits over 6.0 innings; struck out five, walked one; threw 97 pitches, 67 for strikes.
- LAST VS. SEATTLE: May 15 at Fenway Park, won 5-0; allowed four hits over 7.0 innings and struck out nine, including Jesus Montero, Justin Smoak and Michael Saunders twice each.
- CAREER VS. MARINERS: 7-2, 3.03 ERA in in 10 starts, covering 65.1 innings; 67 strikeouts to 15 walks; 8.6 strikeouts per nine innings; seven home runs.
- AT SAFECO FIELD: 2-1, 3.33 ERA in three games, all starts, covering 24.1 innings; 25 strikeouts to nine walks; 9.2 strikeouts per nine innings (third-highest total at any major league park); three home runs.
- LOVES TO FACE: John Jaso (0-for-9, .000 BA), Justin Smoak (0-for-8, .000 BA), Miguel Olivo (0-for-3, .000 BA).
- HATES TO FACE: Dustin Ackley (4-for-9, .444 BA), Michael Saunders (2-for-5, .400 BA), Chone Figgins (8-for-26, .308 BA).
- CURRENT MARINERS VS. BECKETT: 31-for-128, .242 BA, four home runs, 41 strikeouts.
Red Sox 5, Mariners 0
AT SEATTLE (June 29): Aaron Cook threw a two-hitter in the finest performance of his career, Will Middlebrooks , Cody Ross and Daniel Nava all hit solo homers in the fifth inning, and the Red Sox blanked the Mariners 5-0. Seattle starter Hector Noesi allowed a career-high four home runs and became the first pitcher in the majors to reach 10 losses. Seattle’s only hit off Cook through seven innings was an infield single by Ichiro.

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.
