No, the Seattle Mariners won't be catching Oakland for third place in the American League West, and no, their improvement in the win-loss column won't be all that impressive in 2011.
Still, there are some numbers worth remembering, a few challenges left in the final 14 games.
Miguel Olivo, for instance, hit ihs 18th home run of the season last night - tying the franchise record for homers by a catcher - tying Dan Wilson (1996) and Kenji Johjima (2006).
Ichiro's annual run at 200 hits is a long shot - he's at 169 with 15 games remaining. But with one more RBI, Ichiro would become just the fifth player in Seattle history to record as many as 600 RBI.
Never miss a local story.
Dustin Ackley(.290) has the best shot at finishing at .300 or better in 2011, and if he doesn't the team will end the year without a .300 hitter for the first time since 1988, when Alvin Davis batted .295.
And now, here's tonight's lineup vs. RHP A.J. Burnett:
