The Mariners scored only one run Saturday against the Red Sox despite tallying nine hits, and took a loss for the 14th consecutive game.

The M’s have scored only 32 runs in that 14-game span and will set a franchise record for futility if they lose again in Sunday’s series finale at Fenway Park.

Seattle had a .500 record (43-43) on July 5. Now the team is a whopping 14 games under .500 and 14.5 games behind the Rangers for first place in the American League West.

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Angels have hired former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus as a special assistant to GM Billy Eppler.

Ausmus, 48, managed the Tigers for four seasons, accruing a 314-332 (.486) record. The Tigers fired him after the 2017 season and hired former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire in his place.

Ausmus will assist with scouting and evaluations of players in the Angels’ system, amateurs, and players in other organizations.
