In his first game following his recall from Triple-A Tacoma, Mike Carp was in the eight-hole as the designated hitter and went 1-for-4. Not quite on a par with his last Minor League game: On Monday, Carp homered twice and drove in seven runs, extending his hitting streak to 22 games, during which he hit .433 with 11 homers and 35 RBIs. Tigers: Ordonez ready to resurface
Magglio Ordonez, who has missed nearly a month with a weak right ankle, expects to return to the Tigers on Monday. Ordonez is playing on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo. Worth noting
Ichiro Suzuki played his 1,353rd game in right field for the Mariners on Wednesday, breaking his tie with Jay Buhner for the most games there in club history. Ichiro has long held the Seattle record for overall outfield appearances. Wednesday's was No. 1,617. Ken Griffey Jr. is second with 1,496.
