PHOENIX (AP) — Edwin Diaz was thrilled to set a Seattle Mariners franchise record with his 49th save. He’s really looking forward to the next one [url=][/url ] , though.Maybe a little more than manager Scott Servais — who has promised to match Diaz’s funky haircut when his All-Star closer reaches No. 50.“I want to get my 50 to see the haircut,” Diaz said after he closed out Seattle’s 6-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. “If I do it here on the road I will bring the barber.”Diaz finished off a strong start from Erasmo Ramirez, Mitch Haniger hit his 21st homer and had three hits, and Mike Zunino added a solo shot for the Mariners. Seattle kept pace in the AL West and wild-card races.Diaz surpassed Fernando Rodney’s previous record of 48 in 2014. Haniger, an All-Star who made his major league debut with the Diamondbacks in 2016 before being traded to Seattle, added two singles and scored twice.“Always want to do well against every team, especially a team that traded you,” Haniger said.Ramirez (1-2) turned in his longest outing of the season, allowing one earned run and six hits with six strikeouts and a walk. Ramirez dropped his ERA from 5.49 to 4.56 and won for the first time in more than a year.Zack Godley (13-7) allowed five runs and seven hits in five innings.The Mariners used a pair of doubles, three singles, a sacrifice fly and Dee Gordon’s hustle to plate four runs in the third inning. Gordon led off with a double, and with one out, his delayed steal attempt led to Godley’s overthrow of third base and allowed Gordon to score.Former Diamondback Jean Segura singled in a run, Denard Span hit an RBI double and Kyle Seager’s sacrifice fly made it 4-0 before Godley escaped the inning.“If you erase that four-run third, it’s a totally different situation,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. “Unfortunately we got nicked up and made a mistake on the mound and it cost us.”A.J. Pollock’s sacrifice fly in the fifth made it 5-1 before Zunino hit his 18th home run of the season in the sixth off reliever Matt Andriese.Throwing errors helped the Diamondbacks get closer. Segura’s low throw to first allowed Paul Goldschmidt to reach [url=]Jeff Samardzija Jersey[/url] , and Ketel Marte doubled with two outs. Both Goldschmidt and Marte came home when Gordon’s attempt to throw out Nick Ahmed at first one-hopped Robinson Cano.Nick Vincent, Alex Colome and Diaz closed out the Diamondbacks with scoreless innings. Arizona had won six of its previous seven games.GO-GO GORDONGordon tumbled on his head to catch a sinking line drive in shallow right field in the first inning, the first of the speedy second baseman’s two big plays. In the third, he tried to steal third base as the catcher was throwing the ball back to the pitcher. Godley, who has struggled throwing to bases this season, tried a slow overhand lob that flew over third baseman Eduardo Escobar’s head for an error, and Gordon scored easily.“You’ve got to pick them at the right time,” Gordon said.MARINERS MOVESPitcher Ross Detwiler and infielder Zach Vincej, designated for assignment earlier in the week, were outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: LHP James Paxton (left forearm contusion) threw a bullpen session before Friday’s game and could be ready to return when Seattle plays at Oakland next weekend.Diamondbacks: RHP Shelby Miller (elbow) threw from 100 feet Tuesday but there is no timetable on when he can pitch in games. … OF Jarrod Dyson is throwing, hitting and running as he comes back from a groin injury.UP NEXTMariners: Servais said LHP Wade LeBlanc (7-3) will start Saturday against the Diamondbacks, and Sunday’s scheduled starter is right-hander Mike Leake (8-7).Diamondbacks: LHP Robbie Ray (3-2) looks to end a streak of six straight no-decisions on Saturday when he faces Seattle. It will be his third career start against the Mariners. NEW YORK (AP) — Cincinnati catcher Tucker Barnhart could hear the difference at Great American Ball Park, one of six major league stadiums that set record lows for attendance this year.“It’s pretty hard to not notice it when you can hear the light towers buzzing,” he said.Major League Baseball’s average attendance dropped 4 percent to 28,830, its lowest since 2003 after 14 consecutive seasons topping 30 [url=][/url ] ,000.Baltimore’s Camden Yards, Chicago’s Guaranteed Rate Field, Minnesota’s Target Field, Miami’s Marlins Park and Pittsburgh’s PNC Park also drew their smallest attendance since opening as part of a ballpark boom. In a season of unusually cold and wet weather, 17 of the 30 teams experienced drops.Major League Baseball attributed the decrease primarily “connected to the historically bad weather we faced back in the spring” and noted the percentage drop decreased markedly after May 1.Total attendance fell to 69.63 million from 72.67 million last year and a high of 79.5 million in 2007. The average is down 14.4 percent from its high of 32,785 in 2007, the last year before the Great Recession. It had not been this low since 28,013 in 2003.“I think it is a concerning number, and a think a lot of factors go into it in today’s climate, particularly when fans have as many options as they have in where they’re spending their entertainment dollar,” players’ association head Tony Clark said.On-field success and attendance usually are linked.“When teams rebuild, it always has an attendance effect,” baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said.The NL champion Los Angeles Dodgers set a club record, Colorado drew its biggest crowds since 2001, World Series champion Houston since 2007 and the New York Yankees since 2012 — including a new Yankee Stadium record 23 sellouts.But advance sales were down for several teams that jettisoned veterans and went with youth. Under the five-year labor contract agreed to before the 2017 season, limits were placed on spending for international amateurs following restrictions that began in 2012 on amateurs who reside in the U.S. More cost certainty for controllable players may have encouraged more teams to rebuild at the same time.“If our system encourages teams to be either all in or all out [url=]Mark Melancon Jersey[/url] , there are some things worth discussing and we look forward to having those conversations,” Clark said.The Orioles (47-115), White Sox (62-100), Marlins (63-98) and Reds (67-95) had among the poorest records, while the Twins had a losing season at 78-84.“People have a lot of decisions to make in their life about what they’re doing with their commitments and money and what have you. It’s up to us to give them something they want to embrace,” Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. “Attendance is down. It’s our fault, not theirs.”But the Pirates contended until late in the season and finished 82-79, yet fell by more than 450,000 to 1.65 million, the smallest for the franchise since 1996 at Three Rivers Stadium. Perhaps the cause was a lingering effect from trading away stars Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole the previous offseason.Cleveland fell by 120,000 even though the Indians won their third straight AL Central title.Despite a 90-72 record and third-place finish in the AL East, Tampa Bay was 29th in the major leagues at 1.15 million. The Rays and Oakland Athletics are the last two teams seeking new ballparks.“I know it’s a hassle getting to the ballpark. I get it. Even if we’d have won 100 games, who knows if it would have been different?” Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier said.In its first season under new chief executive office Derek Jeter, the Marlins drew 811,000 after trading star slugger Giancarlo Stanton to the New York Yankees, the low for a franchise that started in 1993 and the fewest home fans for any major league team since the 2004 Montreal Expos in their last season before moving to Washington [url=][/url ] , D.C. The Marlins said they changed their counting method to include only tickets sold. Still, the vast amount of empty seats is unsustainable.“That’s something we need to improve,” Jeter said. “Where we’re starting from, the only way we can go is up.”Bad weather played a factor in the falloff, especially earn in the season. The average of 26,867 through April was down 9.4 percent from 29,654 through the first full month in 2017. There were 54 postponements, the most since 1989, and 26 of them were higher-drawing weekend games. Manfred said 35 games in April had a temperature of 40 degrees or less and a quarter of the games were played in 50 degrees or under.“We got ourselves in a hole that I’ve never seen since I’ve been in baseball,” said Manfred, who first got involved in the sport as an outside counsel in 1987.Still, he knows changes in the sport and the audience have to be examined constantly.“All live entertainment is challenging because of changing habits,” Manfred said.
