Starter Garrett Olson wasn't at his best, allowing three runs -- two earned -- over 2 2/3 innings, and the Mariners committed four errors as they opened the second half with a loss. Ronny Cedeno ripped a solo shot in the fifth inning, but that was all the bats could manage against the dominant stuff of opposing starter Cliff Lee.
