Mariners shut out

Sixth straight loss for Seattle

Associated Press

SEATTLE — Jeff Niemann pitched four-hit ball into the seventh inning, Carl Crawford finished a triple short of the cycle and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Seattle Mariners 8-0 on Thursday night for a three-game sweep.

Niemann (2-0) overcame a second-inning anomaly of throwing 11 straight balls, to help keep Tampa Bay rolling on the best start in club history. Tampa Bay won its fourth straight and ninth in 11 games and is 12-1 on the road.

The Mariners lost their sixth straight — swept by the Rangers and Rays — and placed starting left fielder Milton Bradley on the restricted list while he deals with personal issues.
