Roger Clemens will look to rebound from two straight postseason losses when he takes the mound for the New York Yankees in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series against the Seattle Mariners tonight at Safeco Field. His opponent will be Paul Abbott. Clemens last pitched a week ago tonight, against Oakland at Yankee Stadium in Game 4 of an AL division series. Working on three days' rest after having lost Game 1 in Oakland, Clemens was mugged for six hits and six runs in five innings.

SEATTLE - Six days before Cliff Lee made his first start as a Mariner, Pat Gillick showed up at his door. In his hand, Gillick carried a package: Lee's diamond-studded ring for being a member of the 2009 National League champion Phillies - the final tie to his 31/2-month tenure with the team. Gillick lives about a mile away in Seattle from Lee, who is leasing Jamie Moyer's house. The former Phillies and Mariners general manager called the Mariners, who notified Lee to expect Gillick.

The Seattle Mariners are making history on the road this year. Freddy Garcia became Seattle's second 15-game winner and Bret Boone drove in three runs as the Mariners beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, 4-0, yesterday and set a major league record for road play. Seattle has not lost in 27 consecutive regular-season road series since a 2-1 series loss at Detroit from Aug. 22 to 24 last year. The previous marks of 26 road series in a row without a loss was set by the 1906-07 Chicago Cubs.

The Seattle Mariners are showing fans they're sincere in their intention to keep superstars Ken Griffey and Alex Rodriguez in new Safeco Field beyond the 2000 season. On a day that the team made a small move by signing catcher Tom Lampkin to a $1.55 million, two-year contract, the bigger news was that the Mariners are talking about contract extensions to Griffey and Rodriguez. The deals would be worth $60 million to $70 million each. There was no announcement by the team of the offers, which were reported in Thursday's editions of the Seattle Times.

Ken Griffey Jr. gave Hank Aaron and Seattle fans a reason to remember the final opener at the Kingdome. Griffey hit his seventh home run on Opening Day, but it wasn't enough for the Mariners in an 8-2 loss to the visiting Chicago White Sox last night. Frank Thomas doubled twice, singled and drove in two runs for the White Sox. Darrin Jackson and Paul Konerko added two-run homers as Chicago opened on the road for the ninth straight year. Griffey, the player most likely to challenge Aaron's career record of 755 home runs, hit his 351st to start his 11th major league season.

SEATTLE - Felix Hernandez finally conquered the pursuit of perfection that he had chased since his debut as a baby-faced 19-year-old with uncontrollable curly hair and a hat that never sat straight. Hernandez pitched the Seattle Mariners' first perfect game, the 23d in baseball history and the history-making third of this season, overpowering the Tampa Bay Rays in a brilliant, 1-0 victory on Wednesday. "It was always in my mind, every game. 'I need to throw a perfect game.' For every pitcher I think it's in their mind," Hernandez said.

Mariners shortstop Carlos Guillen returned to Safeco Field for the first time since being diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis. Guillen, diagnosed with the contagious disease Sept. 28, came to watch Seattle's workout yesterday. "That was nice," catcher Tom Lampkin said of seeing Guillen. "I think he's happy to be back out here, outside on the field, even though he doesn't have a uniform on. " Guillen missed the final nine games of the regular season and will not play in the division series starting today against the Cleveland Indians.

There are craters out in the unforgiving desert, pockmarks in the barren land that commemorate collisions that once rocked the neighborhood. But if you want to see a crater that truly won't fill, take a look at the outfield of the Seattle Mariners. As the Mariners toiled through spring training, on the edge of Phoenix sprawl and with the moonscape desert just over the wall, they searched for life on a team that has lived through the Ken Griffey Jr. era and emerged as something completely different.

In free-fall, Mariners try new hitting coach Job security is not a perk if you're the hitting coach for the league's worst offense. Seattle's Alan Cockrell learned that Sunday as the Mariners gave him the hook in his second season in that capacity. He was scouting in the video room at Safeco Field when he got the call for the long walk to manager Don Wakamatsu's office. Wakamatsu and general manager Jack Zduriencik broke it to him. His replacement is Alonzo Powell, who's been the hitting coach at triple-A Tacoma for three seasons.

WITH ALL THE ups and downs in recent seasons, including his demotion to the bullpen for the playoffs, Tim Lincecum can appreciate the strong starts when most everything goes right - reminding himself, from his own experiences, how quickly things change. Backed by solo home runs from Pablo Sandoval, Brandon Belt and Marco Scutaro, Lincecum looked in his best form in 2013 as the San Francisco Giants beat the visiting Atlanta Braves, 5-1, yesterday to wrap up an impressive homestand.

SEATTLE - Vance Worley was still in the visitors clubhouse at Safeco Field Sunday, and that was the best indication yet he will start another game for the Phillies. Pitching coach Rich Dubee said he has decided on a starter for Friday's game against Oakland at Citizens Bank Park, but would not reveal it. Chances are it is Worley because the team does not view him as a candidate for the bullpen based upon the damage incurred last time he shifted to a relief role. "I don't know," Worley said.

Man of a thousand runs Meet Ichiro Suzuki, millennium man. Over the weekend, the Seattle rightfielder crossed the plate for his 1,000 time, becoming the eighth-fastest active player - and third Mariner ever - to reach the mark. Then for good measure, he made it 1,001 in Sunday's 9-4 home loss to the Angels. The day before, in the fifth, also against the Angels, he doubled for his second hit, then scored on Franklin Gutierrez's RBI groundout. The crowd stood and chanted "I-chi-ro!"
