SEATTLE -- Wade LeBlanc, Seattles latest entry in its beleaguered rotation, may not be racking up the victories in rapid fashion but the Mariners appreciate anything he can provide.LeBlanc, acquired in a trade with Toronto on June 22, was critical in the Mariners 5-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night, earning his first victory since Sept. 23, 2014.Kyle Seager and Dae-Ho Lee hit two-run homers to power the second straight victory over the American League East-leading Orioles.LeBlanc (1-0) worked six innings, giving up three hits and two runs while walking one and striking out five. He went 646 days between victories.Anytime you get a win, its fun, the 31-year-old left-hander said, whether its five days or 563 days, or however long it is. I dont take anything for granted.His last win was with the Los Angeles Angels against Oakland at the end of his 2014 season. He then played for the Seibu Lions last season and signed a minor-league deal this year with the Blue Jays. He was in the minors when the Mariners acquired him.Thats not an easy lineup to navigate through with all the power they have, but he kind of took some sting out of their bats and kept them off balance, Mariners manager Scott Servais said.The Mariners have had injuries and inconsistencies in the rotation. Ace Felix Hernandez (strain calf) is on the disabled list, Wade Miley (shoulder) just returned from the DL, Taijuan Walker missed his previous start with a sore foot and Nathan Karns has been dispatched to the bullpen.In LeBlancs debut with the Mariners on June 24, he went six innings against St. Louis, allowing three hits without a run. He had a 23 2/3 innings scoreless streak -- dating to 2014 -- entering Fridays game.Hes been phenomenal in both his starts, Seager said. The tempo he throws at, the amount of strikes he throws, the way he goes right after people. He doesnt shy away. Thats a really good offense over there. Hes giving us a chance in these games.Another newcomer, hard-throwing Edwin Diaz, promoted from Double-A Jackson June 6, is also making an impact. In the eighth, he struck out Adam Jones, Manny Machado and Chris Davis. He has 26 strikeouts in first 13 relief appearances.Youve got to tip your hat to him (LeBlanc), and their relievers. I think thats five out of seven for Diaz, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. You know why they like him so much. Hes doing a great job for them. Hes got a great young arm.Steve Cishek worked the ninth for his 20th save in 24 opportunities.Kevin Gausman (1-6) took the loss. He went six innings and allowed three runs and eight hits with no walks and seven strikeouts.He just made a couple of mistakes, Showalter said. When were not scoring runs it gets magnified.The teams traded early home runs. Seattles Seth Smith hit one in the first inning -- his eighth -- and Baltimores Davis went deep in the second -- his 20th. It was Davis 181st as an Oriole, one behind Ken Singleton for eighth place on the clubs all-time list.The Orioles took a 2-1 lead in the third on Jonathan Schoops two-out single, scoring Joey Richard from second.Nelson Cruz started the sixth with a double off the wall in right-center field. He has played 50 games against his former team and has reached base safely in 47, including 45 with at least one hit.Seager, protecting an 0-2 count, caught a high 96-mph fastball from Gausman and ripped it 15 seats into the bleachers in right. It was his 16th.In the eighth, with Cruz on first, Lee hit his 11th home run, to left field off Chaz Roe.GOING DEEP RESEARCHIn one of the more quirky and esoteric baseball stats, deep research by the Elias Sports Bureau has shown that Baltimores Hyun-Soo Kims home run Thursday meant more than just the record 56, most in major league history for June. It was the 23rd straight year the Orioles have hit at least one home run on June 30. Thats the longest home run streak by any team on any date in history.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: Showalter said RHP Darren ODay (right hamstring strain), who has been on the DL since June 3, felt pretty good today. Thats a good sign. Hes not going backwards, just not going forward.Mariners: RHP Felix Hernandez (strained calf) threw a 23-pitch bullpen session three hours before Fridays game and was watched by more than a few club personnel. He appeared uninhibited. The plan is for him to throw a simulated game during the series in Houston followed by two rehab starts in the minors then will start after the All-Star break. Hes pretty important, Servais said. We need to get him going in the second half.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Tyler Wilson (4-5, 4.50) has won his last two decisions, although in his previous start he allowed 10 hits and five runs in five innings of a 12-5 victory over Tampa Bay. In two career appearances against Seattle, Wilson is 0-1 with a 6.43 ERA.Mariners: LHP James Paxton (1-3, 4.15) is one of the pitchers Servais is counting on in the second half despite just one win this season. He has had one career start against Baltimore, a 4 1/3-inning no-decision. Wholesale Cheap Shoes Free Shipping .

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Les Miles enters his 12th season at LSU with one of the most experienced teams of his tenure, including Heisman Trophy hopeful Leonard Fournette.Now LSUs upperclassmen must produce or face the prospect of precipitating the end of the Miles era on the bayou. After all, expectations at LSU run as high as Death Valley is loud, and it has been four seasons since the Tigers earned a berth to the Southeastern Conference championship game.Optimism oozes from junior quarterback Brandon Harris as he explains how having a slew of leaders among the 17 returning players who started much of last season could propel LSU back into contention for SEC and national titles.We have such a great group of guys, great leaders in each of those (position) rooms, guys that have played a lot of football, Harris said. All those guys are really working hard in the leadership role. Were able to motivate guys. ... Guys want to get out and compete.A three-game, late-season losing streak that began with a fifth-straight loss to rival Alabama derailed the Tigers hopes for a return to SEC supremacy and spawned rampant speculation that Miles would not make it through the season. His status wasnt confirmed until after a victory over Texas A&M in LSUs regular season finale in Tiger Stadium.The Tigers then beat Texas Tech in the Texas Bowl, finishing with a 9-3 record, and LSU headed into the offseason eager to see how much better it could be with another year of maturity.Indeed, Miles said as fall camp approached that he expects the Tigers to be a very significant team.Here are some prominent story lines for LSU:FABULOUS FOURNETTE: LSUs star running back rushed for 1,953 yards and 22 touchdowns as a sophomore. He also had 19 catches for 253 yards and one touchdown receiving. However, a 31-yard performance at Alabama knocked him out of the running for the Heisman Trophy, eventually won by his Alabama counterpart, Derrick Henry. This year, LSU has a deep backfield and is striving for an improved passing game, meaning the Tigers wont necessarily expect Fournette to increase production overall, but still carry the offense through critical junctures.ddddddddddddARANDAS ARRIVAL: LSUs defense has its third coordinator in three seasons following the departure of Kevin Steele, who last season replaced John Chavis. Now Steele has moved on, replaced by Dave Aranda, who left Wisconsin to join Miles staff. The Tigers, whove long played with four down linemen, will now be in a 3-4 set that in some cases will allow more versatile players to line up in different spots, depending on the situation. So far, LSU defenders seem pleased by the opportunities Aranda will give them to explore their full potential. How well they execute in game situations remains to be seen.SEASON OPENER: The Tigers open against Wisconsin on Sept. 3 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This marks the second off-campus season opener between these teams since LSU narrowly came back to beat the Badgers, 28-24, in Houston in 2014. The game also pits Aranda against the team for which he coached the previous three seasons.KEY GAMES: For LSU, no game is bigger than Alabamas visit on Nov. 5. The Tigers have not beaten Nick Sabans Crimson Tide since the 2011 regular season. Other pivotal games include a visit to Florida on Oct. 8, a home date with Mississippi on Oct. 22 and a Nov. 12 visit to Arkansas, where the Tigers historically struggle.PREDICTION: LSU was a virtual 10-win team in 2015 with a younger squad and with Harris as a first-year starter. Now Harris has another offseason under coordinator and QB coach Cam Cameron, who plans to be on the sideline this season, rather than in the press box as he was for all of last season except for the Tigers lopsided bowl victory. With him on the sideline, being able to communicate with me, me being able to look over there and look at his eyes and see if were on the same page, its important, Harris said. If Harris improves on last seasons completion percentage of 53.8, LSU could contend for a College Football Playoff berth.---Online: AP College football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
