Mariners notebook: Seager can't explain surge in Safeco production

Staff writerJune 17, 2014 

Fact: Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager batted .238 with 13 homers over 638 at-bats in his first three seasons at Safeco Field.

Fact: Seager is batting .313 this season in 35 games at Safeco and already has nine homers in 115 at-bats.

Fact: Seager had 33 RBIs last season in 80 games at Safeco. This year, he already has 28. His on-base percentage at home is nearly 100 points higher than his career mark coming into the season.

Fact: There are a bunch more facts in this vein, but you get the idea.

Question (obvious): What’s going on?

“I’m not doing anything different,” Seager insisted. “It’s just one of those things. But I’m going to ride the wave.”
