Seattle Mariners Notes, Quotes 2008-06-25
--RHP Felix Hernandez will be wearing a white padded boot for the next few days to protect his sprained left ankle. Hernandez says he will make his next start Sunday in San Diego, but the Mariners have a day off Thursday and are looking for ways to push him back to give the ankle maximum time to heal.

--LHP Jarrod Washburn, seeing the club was short of relievers Tuesday, volunteered to pitch in relief, but he didn't get into the game. Washburn, who threw 118 pitches Saturday and is scheduled to start again Friday in San Diego, was on his normal throw day.

--RHP Brandon Morrow said he was ready to pitch, if needed, six days after suffering back spasms incurred while picking up balls off the infield grass after pitchers' batting practice.

--1B Richie Sexson had one of his best games of the year, hitting the ball hard four times and winding up with a single, a double and two sacrifice flies. The double was his first extra-base hit since May 24.

--RHP R.A. Dickey (seven innings) and RHP Mark Lowe (two innings) combined for Seattle's fourth shutout of the season Tuesday. It was the 21st shutout thrown by Seattle pitching in interleague play, an interleague record.

--C Kenji Johjima had three hits Tuesday, including a two-run homer. It was his first home run since May 16 and just his third of the year, as he has lost playing time to C Jeff Clement.

BY THE NUMBERS: 9 -- Times RF Ichiro Suzuki had led off a game in June with a hit, in a total of 19 games through June 22.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We just need to put clean games back-to-back-to-back." -- Manager Jim Riggleman.
