Mariners 4, Twins 3
J.J. Putz (2-1) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win. ... 3B Adrian Beltre was not in Seattle's lineup for the first time since June 17, when he was ending a five-day hiatus because of a thumb injury. McLaren said he'd been wanting to give the stubborn Beltre a break for a while. Willie Bloomquist started for Beltre and made two fine plays on slow grounders in the sixth.
