Horacio Ramirez left with a lead after two innings due to tightness in his left shoulder, and it was all downhill from there for Mariners pitching in the series finale. Mariners relievers allowed nine runs to spoil Ichiro Suzuki's 1,000th Major League game and Jose Lopez's 4-for-5, four-RBI day at the plate.
The Devil Rays had to fend off a furious late-inning rally by the Mariners, including a ninth-inning Ichiro homer, to win the series finale and give Jae Seo his third win of the year. Dioner Navarro had two hits, including a two-run triple in the fourth inning, and Carl Crawford had three RBIs to snap the Rays' five-game losing streak.
