Jason Vargas throws eight one-hit innings in possible Mariners swan song

What a way for Jason Vargas to go out if that was indeed his final game as a Mariner. The trade deadline will happen before his next start and the eight innings of one-hit ball he threw in a 4-1 win over the Kansas City Royals won’t hurt any interest in him.
Billy Butler had the only two hits of the game for KC — a double off Vargas in the fourth to score the visitors’ only run and then a double in the ninth against Tom Wilhelmsen.
Vargas had left after eight, his pitch count at 115. The crowd behind the home dugout stood and cheered him, understanding the significance of the moment.
For Vargas, he notches his career-high 11th victory in a game that really wasn’t memorable for much else.
Mike Carp had three hits, Miguel Olivo and Dustin Ackley a pair and Carlos Peguero and Brendan Ryan each had RBI hits off another awful-looking Royals starter. But again, they all count, right?
For Vargas, this one did. And it may for some other interested teams as well.
