Seattle is in the midst of a 10-game road trip, and moved into a three-way tie with Kansas City and Texas for the wild-card lead last night after bashing Boston, 11-2. The Mariners, 16-13 for the month, have won more games in August than any time in club history. Seattle continues to have trouble winning close games, however, holding a 2-12 record in one-run games since the All-Star break, including its last six losses. Randy Johnson was scratched last night, and may miss his next start as well. Seattle relies on the middle of its lineup to supply most of the power. Tino and Edgar Martinez, Jay Buhner and Mike Blowers have accounted for 97 of the Mariners' 136 home runs. Ken Griffey has five hits in his last 33 at-bats and three homers in 16 games since his return from the disabled list on Aug. 15.
