past the Seattle Mariners, 1-0, in the middle installment of a three-game

out five and walked three.
"Offensively, we've just got to figure this out here at home, it's no secret,"
Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. "We've shown what we're capable of doing it
on the road and we've just gotta work to help these guys get over the hump
here at home."
