Seattle Mariners veteran Chris Young continued his remarkable career renaissance Saturday night by outpitching Kansas City phenom Yordano Ventura in a 3-1 victory at Safeco Field. Young improved to 3-0 and lowered his ERA to 2.63 by limiting the Royals to one tainted run in eight innings before Fernando Rodney closed out the victory with a scoreless ninth inning. Young underwent a series of shoulder operations in recent years that threatened to end his career before agreeing last year, as a last resort, to a procedure that addressed a nerve issue. And now look.
