It’s the first time in team history that the Mariners have had two, 1-0 games in the same series.

Sunday was the best start of the season for Rowland-Smith (1-6) since returning to the starting rotation on June 5. Franklin Gutierrez hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning off of Aaron Harang (5-7) for the game’s only run.

David Aardsma pitched the ninth for his 15th save.

The Reds’ Arthur Rhodes extended his career-high scoreless innings streak to 28 2-3 innings.


Catcher Ramon Hernandez hit a tie-breaking homer leading off the 10th inning, Joey Votto and Scott Rolen added back-to-back shots and the Reds beat the Athletics 6-4 on Monday night.

The Hernandez hit an 0-1 pitch from Michael Wuertz (2-10 that bounced off the right-field foul pole, breaking a 2-2 tie. Brandon Phillips hit a single and advanced to second on a sacrifice by Paul Janish before Joey Votto’s two-run shot off Cedrick Bowers. Rolen followed with his home run.

The win moved Baker into a tie with Chuck Tanner for 26th place on the all-time list.

Cincinnati had taken a 2-1 lead in the top of the ninth when pinch-hitter Jay Bruce singled off Oakland closer Andrew Bailey to drive in Drew Stubbs.

Oakland’s Kevin Kouzmanoff tied the game with a leadoff home run in the bottom of the ninth off Reds closer Francisco Cordero before the Reds used their power in the 10th.

Cordero (3-3) got the win after his fifth blown save of the season. He gave up back-to-back walks to Oakland’s first two batters in the 10th before Daniel Ray Herrera and Jordan Smith came on to close the game out.

Reds left-handed reliever Arthur Rhodes is leading the NL in ERA at 0.29 and has not been scored on in 29 innings.
