Raul Ibanez just hit his 18th homer of the season off left-hander Justin Wilson in the sixth inning to tie the game up 2-2. The Mariners had scored an unearned run in the fourth inning on an error y shortstop Jordy Mercer on what should have een a doule-play grounder by Justin Smoak.

The Mariners had only three hits in five innings off starter Jeanmar Gomez, but have found new life against the bullpen.

1:35 p.m.: Neil Walker hit a two-run homer off Felix Hernandez in the top of the fourth inning to open the scoring for the Pirates, who now have a 2-0 lead.

12:31 p.m.: Dustin Ackley is here and he’s ready to go. But Mariners manager Eric Wedge isn’t using him today, feeling it isn’t fair to Ackley. The Mariners didn’t take early batting practice today, so there was no time to get any prep work in.

Ackley arrived here just before last night’s game, so again, no prep work.

Anyhow, that’s the story.
