SEATTLE (AP) – Felix Hernandez got plenty of run support and the Seattle Mariners topped the Tampa Bay Rays 12-5 last night after hitting two early drives off the top of the wall, requiring video reviews on consecutive batters. James Jones doubled, singled and scored in each of the first three innings as the Mariners took a 9-0 lead. Robinson Cano (kan-OH’) drove in two runs and Hernandez cruised to the win.

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) – Oregon State ace Ben Wetzler faces two misdemeanor charges for breaking the window of a Corvallis home, apparently thinking it was his own residence.
