Solve pitch-selection issues by calling pitches from the bench? Well, no…

SEATTLE — It happens occasionally that Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon, like all of his peers, expresses irritation over the pitch-selection decisions from his pitcher/catcher combination. So question: Why not just call pitches from the bench? That routinely happens in college and high school. Mariners catcher Mike Zunino wore an NFL-style wrist band in college. Many college catchers do. “It was for calling pitches,” Zunino recalled. “They had pickoff plays, pitchouts, the running game. It sort of had everything.” Why not have something similar in the big leagues? The Mariners...

Mariners get another homer from Cruz but little else in 5-2 loss to Dodgers

LOS ANGELES — Nelson Cruz went deep again Wednesday night. That makes six homers in five games and at least one in five straight games. And the good news pretty much ends there for the Mariners. The Los Angeles Dodgers roughed up Taijuan Walker for three runs in the first inning and completed a three-game sweep over the Mariners with a 5-2 victory at Dodger Stadium. Sure, the script changed for the finale. The Mariners built early multi-run leads Monday and Tuesday before allowing the Dodgers to scramble back for a pair of 6-5 walk-off victories.
