Lowe, Red Sox shut down slumping M's. Four wins in a row for Boston, five losses in a row for Seattle. (Yahoo!)

David Cameron: "Watching the game tonight, I saw an awful lot of groundballs to second. So, I checked the game log. The Mariners grounded out to second base in every single inning. Todd Walker made 10 putouts. This game was a giant middle finger to those that believe that pitchers have no impact on balls in play. You can't watch Derek Lowe induce 15 groundouts (against 3 fly outs) and come to the conclusion that he has no part in that. Especially when Ryan Franklin is throwing batting practice in the other half-innings." (U.S.S. Mariner)

Joe Sheehan reports from Thursday's Expos-Dodgers game. (Baseball Prospectus)

Prospectus Triple Play: Indians, Dodgers, Mariners. "It's not uncommon for everyday players--especially those on the right end of the defensive spectrum--to see a decline in their production as the season wears on. One-hundred sixty-two games is a boatload, and spending half your time avoiding someone's spikes on the double-play or wearing the tools of ignorance is not particularly easy or comfortable...With that being said, it is really that much of a surprise that Paul Lo Duca appears to be hitting the wall once again for the Boys in Blue?"
