SEATTLE -- Without wavering, Chris Young will say it each time he is asked: Individual wins are not important to him. JMarcus Webb Jersey
. Its about the teams success, the veteran right-hander says, going to painstaking lengths to get his point across. Young reached his first double-digit win total in a season since 2006 on Wednesday, but it truly was a team effort this time around as the Seattle Mariners sent the Atlanta Braves to a season-high eighth straight loss with a 7-3 victory. It is the first time since May 2012 that the Braves, who were swept at Dodger Stadium and San Diego before losing two straight at Safeco Field, have lost eight in a row. "You cant get caught up in wins and losses as a starting pitcher. One day the media will stop evaluating us on that," Young said with a laugh. Young (10-6), who allowed all three runs in the third, was immediately picked up by his teammates, as the Mariners responded with a four-run third. Dustin Ackley led off with a home run and Logan Morrison added a three-run shot off Julio Teheran (10-8) for a 5-3 lead. Teheran was wildly inconsistent in six innings, yielding six runs in three frames, while allowing just one baserunner in the other three innings. Even after allowing Ackleys homer, Teheran appeared to have settled down with two quick outs and a 3-2 advantage. Kyle Seager and Chris Taylor hit back-to-back singles, though, and Morrison deposited a fastball into the right-field seats. After Young protected the 5-3 lead through the fifth, the bullpen took over. After a quick hit, four Seattle relievers combined to throw four innings of scoreless relief, allowing three hits. "Its nice to have an eight-man bullpen with so many quality arms down there, so many choices," Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said. Seager drove in Seattles first run with a single in the first, and Taylor and Kendrys Morales later added RBI singles. The Braves scored all three runs in the third, with Freddie Freeman driving in two with a bases-loaded double, but Tommy La Stella was thrown out trying to score from first on the play. "Its just not matching up right now," Braves outfielder Jason Heyward said. "Its not clicking on all cylinders at the same time for us." TRAINERS ROOM Braves: SS Andrelton Simmons, who sprained his left ankle during Tuesdays game, was wearing an air cast and using crutches on Wednesday morning. He still hopes to avoid time on the disabled list. Mariners: OF Michael Saunders, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique, will join Triple-A Tacomaon Thursday to begin a rehab assignment. McClendon said Saunders will DH before moving to the outfield. ... INF Willie Bloomquist did not get a positive report after being checked out by a doctor on Wednesday and will get a second opinion on his bruised right knee. UP NEXT Braves: Atlanta returns home to start a 10-game homestand against the Nationals on Friday. Ervin Santana (10-6) lost his only career start against Washington. Mariners: Rookie Roenis Elias (8-9) will make his second career start against the White Sox on Thursday. Elias allowed five runs in five innings in Chicago on July 4. ACK-ATTACK Ackley continues his torrid pace at the plate and is hitting .346 (37-107) since July 1 after collecting two hits, including the home run. HOME VS. AWAY Teheran did nothing to help boost his road stats. The right-hander entered the game 6-6 with a 3.91 ERA away from Turner Field. At home, Teheran is 4-1 with a 1.48 ERA, which is tied for the major league lead in that category. Matt Schaub Raiders Jersey
. Smith has spent the last three seasons with the Rockies, playing both left and right field, and has a .275 batting average with 51 homers and 181 RBIs in 487 major league games. Lee Smith Jersey
. Anor had not scored since getting his first two goals of the season vs. Philadelphia on March 22 but struck with laser precision from distance in the 56th and 75th minutes. Montreal (3-10-5) lost its third straight and Impact coach Frank Klopas said it literally was a case of his players not stepping up.2. He reps the 4-1-6The insecurity of Canadian basketball fans is not what it once was with the home grown talent making its way to the big leagues, but it is still nice to see the local kids remembering where they come from once they make their way south. While on an official trip to North Carolina during recruiting season last season, Wiggins broke out an old school Raptors lid that just so happened to match perfectly with his shirt. He wore a similar one which visiting Florida St.– and the ladies seemed to love it. Was he forgetting about the Raptors purple? Of course not. Who could ever forget the purple.3. He makes Yeezus smileYe is a polarizing character to those that listen to the words that he actually says, rather than chalking it up to insanity. Rarely does he flash the pearly whites, but apparently the pride of Thornhill brings something to the table that few others do. Kanye looks genuinely happy, and we can only assume its because hes standing next to the future. 4. He reminds you to not jumpThere are some players that you simply should never try to jump with. Nothing good can come from the situation. You might get knocked over, you might get the Shawn Bradley treatment or you will forever be known as the guy on the poster. This kid onPittsburgh St. thought that he had a chance, but of course he didnt.West Virginia guard Eron Harris was wise to stay firmly planted on the ground and just let Wiggins soar past him. 5. He has some styleWe can thank the likes of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant for ushering in a generation of players with some style.It takes some skill to rock the white tux, but Wiggins pulls it off with ease.More white pants? Check. Raptors lid? Check. Crisp Royal House shirt? Check.Camo Pants. Slick shades. Fresh belt and two chains. This kid knows what he is doing.6. He makes it look easySome athletes have a blessing that they can make it look so easy and effortless that people often question how hard they are truly trying. Ronnie Lott Jersey
. . Wiggins is buttery smooth and can glide through the lane with a couple steps and a soft finish at the rim.He picks it up at the three point line and before you can blink – he finishes with a soft finger roll. First college game, first college possession, first college bucket. The skills that he puts on display here are awe inspiring if you slow it down and realize how much happens in such a short period of time. 7. He supports his familyWe have all heard the stories of his athletic roots, but Andrew is as supportive of his family as they come. His brother plays for unbeatenWichita St., and he was sure to let people know that he has his families back no matter who they play for. Ridin to Wichita to kick it w/ my bro @Wiggys_WORLD15 — andrew wiggins (@22wiggins) September 20, 2013He was flanked by his parents when he signed with Kansas, and thanked them repeatedly for their support.8. He blazed his own trail – and said no to Coach CalFor the better part of the past decade, the smoothest pipeline from the college ranks to the NBA ran through Lexington, Kentucky and Coach Jim Calipari. John Wall, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins – and prior to that he had Derrick Rose at Memphis. How could anyone say no?Well Wiggins decided to blaze his own trail and head to Kansas to do so. The fact that his brother was playing down the road surely had an impact, but the desire to break the mould and say no to the man that ships kid after kid into the association takes some marbles. Cal didnt do himself many favors by over recruiting and leaving little in the way of playing time available by the time that Wiggins was ready to commit – but it was impressive to see Wiggins do what he thought was truly best for himself, rather than following the herd.
