12) Yesterday, the Mariners streak of allowing less than 10 hits in 11 consecutive games ended, just 3 shy of the team record (2004). The streak was 1 shy of tying for 2nd in team history, a feat they achieved earlier this year (3/31-5/14; also done in 2003). (playindex) The Mariners have been worse than league average in hits allowed in 9 of the past 10 years (2009 was sole exception), but are 106 hits above league average in 2014. That already ranks 4th in team history and they are on pace for a team record of 179. (Complete Baseball Encyclopedia)
