Seahawks' title ended historic drought

Where does Lewis rank for Mariners?
Kyle Lewis may have been the No. 11 overall pick in this year's draft, but is his talent enough for him to dethrone high-upside outfielder Alex Jackson as Keith Law's No. 1 Mariners prospect? Where top 2016 draft picks rank (Insider)
Two innings too much for Steve Cishek
The Mariners tried to get two innings out of Cishek, and it backfired in ugly fashion. David Schoenfield thinks it was the right move by manager Scott Servais, but now Cishek, who threw 39 pitches, may not be available for a few days. Five things we learned Thursday
Thursday's longest home runs
Jake Lamb continued his breakout season with a 446-foot blast on Thursday, his 15th homer of the year. His teammate, Socrates Brito, had a 446-foot blast of his own as well.
Boog Powell, a minor league outfielder for the Mariners' Triple-A affiliate, received an 80-game suspension after testing positive for a banned performance-enhancing substance.
Twice is nice for Nelson Cruz
Cruz blasted two home runs to left field against the Tigers on Thursday, his second multi-homer game of the season. His fourth-inning homer was his seventh to surpass 425 feet this year, per ESPN's Home Run Tracker.
Pinch runner Cameron Maybin easily scored on a bases-loaded wild pitch by Steve Cishek with two outs in the 10th inning Thursday, giving the Detroit Tigers a 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners.

Good night, Mariners. Seattle falls under .500 after a four-game sweep in Detroit that included two extra-inning losses. The rotation is beat up, the bullpen has regressed after a strong start and the lineup left too many runners on base. Hard to imagine them getting back in the AL West race.
Mariners pitcher Adrian Sampson left Thursday's game against the Tigers in the first inning because of right elbow discomfort.
