KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There were a few more offensive positives for the Mariners in this latest loss than they'd seen since prior to last weekend. They finally hit another home run on Tuesday night, then pulled off a hit-and-run to position themselves to overcome a three-run deficit. But the Mariners ultimately fell, 4-3, to the Kansas City Royals largely because of the same things that had plagued them all holiday weekend when they weren't going deep or playing situational baseball.
