Mariners come back to win it 12-9 on Casper Wells single in 10th

This was one of those typical Mariners road slugfests becoming more and more common of late. In other words, the last pitcher — or hitter — left standing was going to emerge victorious.
In the end, that was pinch-hitter Casper Wells and interim closer Tom Wilhelmsen of the Mariners, who helped nail down an 12-9 victory in the 10th inning. First, it was Wells in the top of the frame, delivering a two-run, pinch-hit single to center field off Brad Ziegler.
Ichiro also came through with his fourth hit of the game — and his second double — that inning to add another insurance marker.
Wilhelmsen then shut the Diamondbacks down on three strikeouts to end the game.
Justin Smoak got the inning going with a walk before being replaced by Munenori Kawasaki. Dustin Ackley singled to center and Brendan Ryan bunted both runners over before Wells came through.


Seattle trailed 9-8 in the eighth before Ryan drew a one-out walk and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Ichiro — who had his biggest night of the season and factored into many of the key scoring plays.
Each team hit three home runs in the game — with Justin Smoak, Kyle Seager and Ryan doing it for Seattle and Gerardo Parra, Aaron Hill and Paul Goldschmidt doing it for the Diamondbacks.
Charlie Furbush did a great job in the Mariners bullpen, notching six straight outs in the eighth and ninth — with four strikeouts, to notch the victory. Shawn Kelley got a huge strikeout in the fifth on Justin Upton to leave the bases loaded with the score tied 8-8. Lucas Luetge gave up the first earned run of his career in the sixth, but then escaped with no further damage despite still having two on with none out.
