M's Bats Fall Silent Again in Loss

SEATTLE — The Mariner bats fell silent once against Wednesday, even as manager Lloyd McClendon did not. Seattle mustered just two hits off Tampa Bay pitching, losing, 2-0, to the Rays, to drop a series for the first time in six tries. Since the first inning of a Tuesday-night loss to Tampa Bay, the M's had just seven hits in 17 innings. McClendon was ejected in the eighth inning on a checked-swing third-strike call on catcher John Buck with Dustin Ackley at second base. McClendon trotted out to confront Barksdale, flung his cap about 30 feet and got rung up. On the way back to the dugout, he tossed the cap again into the stands and it was caught by a fan in the first row above the M's dugout.
