Mariners Vs. Rays Final Score: Seattle Loses Marathon 14-Inning Game, 4-3

The Seattle Mariners were unable to keep the momentum from their series win in Kansas City going on Friday night. In the first game of their three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays, they held in there for 13 and a half innings, but lost in the bottom of the 14th by a final score of 4-3.

The Mariners scored in the top of the first inning -- as they tend to do -- thanks to an RBI double from Casper Wells. That 1-0 lead would hold up until the bottom of the sixth inning, when B.J. Upton hit a solo home run to tie things up and Jeff Keppinger put the Rays ahead with an RBI single.

In the top of the seventh, the Mariners would reclaim a 3-2 lead thanks to a two-run homer from Carlos Peguero. Steve Delabar was charged with a blown save in the bottom of the seventh inning as he allowed a game-tying, two-out RBI single from Upton.

The Mariners bullpen held things down well into extra innings. The M's had a great chance in the top of the 14th, as they had runners at first and second with one out for Kyle Seager and Justin Smoak, but were unable to bring anyone home. Tom Wilhelmsen allowed a game-winning RBI double from Ben Zobrist in the bottom of the 14th to finally allow everyone to head home.

The Mariners will try to regroup on Saturday and try to even the series up.
