Up next for Tampa Bay Rays: Seattle Mariners

. UP NEXT

vs. Mariners

Tonight-Sunday

What's new: When the Rays left Seattle last week, the Mariners were reeling from being swept in a three-game series and placing OF Milton Bradley on the restricted list. Then things got really bad, given the controversy over Ken Griffey's reported clubhouse nap, the firing of hitting coach Alan Cockrell, an injury to SS Jack Wilson and more losing, nine times in 11 overall.

Key stat: The Mariners have combined to hit 16 home runs, fewest in the majors.

Connections: Mariners RHP Jesus Colome and INF Josh Wilson are former Rays; 2B Chone Figgins (Brandon) and 1B Casey Kotchman (Seminole) are Tampa Bay area products; Rays closer Rafael Soriano started his career in Seattle.

Series history: Mariners lead 63-46 overall, 30-18 at the Trop.
