SEATTLE -- Despite some early struggles, Hisashi Iwakuma continued his roll on the mound and with it advanced the suddenly improving hopes of the Seattle Mariners getting back into the postseason conversation.Those struggles were just a minor blip for Iwakuma on his way to another masterful performance, throwing seven strong innings in Seattles 3-0 win over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.He is in a really good spot, a good roll and he feels that when he gets off mechanically for a few pitches hes able to correct it and get back on, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. A testament you dont have to throw 93, 95 to get them out in this league if you execute and make pitches.Iwakuma won for the seventh time in his last eight starts, backed by RBI singles from Mike Zunino and Kyle Seager off Michael Fulmer in the second inning as Seattle opened a key three-game series with its fourth straight win.The Mariners moved within 2 1/2 games of Detroit and Boston for the second wild card in the American League.The pitching is amazing, Seattles Nelson Cruz said. If we want to make a run thats what we need. Theyve been doing a great job.No one has been better for Seattle than Iwakuma. The right-hander allowed five hits and struck out eight, running his streak of scoreless innings at Safeco Field to 21 1/3. He retired 12 of the final 13 batters he faced, including striking out the side in the fourth.Iwakuma (13-7) has developed into the ace of Seattles staff, throwing at least seven innings in eight of his past 14 starts. And he got a little payback after being knocked around by Detroit in June, when he failed to make it through five innings and gave up five runs and 11 hits.When you give up a game you always think about coming back and repaying for that loss, Iwakuma said through an interpreter. Im happy that I got to do it today. Were on a streak right now and I dont want to stop the streak.The performance by Iwakuma offset another solid start from Fulmer. The Tigers rising star threw seven innings and allowed only two hits while striking out six. Three of Seattles five hits off Fulmer (9-3) came in the second inning when the Mariners took an early lead. The rookie suffered his first loss since June 17 -- also the last time the Tigers lost when he started.I feel like my misses were in the right spots. ... I think as far as that goes I didnt miss middle too much, Fulmer said. I think its just one inning and after that it felt great.For a change, the runs for Seattle didnt come via the long ball.Cruz led off the second with a double and scored when Seager rolled a ground ball behind Detroits defensive shift and into center field. Seager moved into scoring position when Leonys Martin walked with one out and scored as Zunino was strong enough to dump a broken-bat single over third baseman Casey McGehee and into left field.Seattle added a run in the eighth when Nori Aoki doubled with two outs and scored on Guillermo Heredias RBI single.Iwakuma and a pair of power arms out of the bullpen did the rest. Newly acquired Arquimedes Caminero pitched a perfect eighth in his Seattle debut and rookie Edwin Diaz pitched the ninth for his fifth save.HOME COOKINIwakuma won his eighth straight start at home, surpassing Felix Hernandezs club record. Hes the first AL pitcher to win eight straight home starts since Jerome Williams for the Angels during the 2011-12 seasons.ROSTER SHUFFLETigers: Left-hander Daniel Norris was recalled from Triple-A Toledo and will start on Tuesday night. The Tigers placed right-hander Bruce Rondon on the paternity list to clear the roster spot for Norris.Mariners: Starter Taijuan Walker was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma to open a roster spot for Caminero. Walker was roughed up for six runs in four innings in his last start. Ariel Miranda will take his spot in Seattles rotation.UP NEXTTigers: Norris (1-0) will make his fifth appearance of the season and fourth start. Norris was on the disabled list from July 5-Aug. 2 with a strained oblique.Mariners: Wade LeBlanc (1-0) makes his sixth start since being acquired by the Mariners. Seattle is 5-1 in his starts.

LOS ANGELES -- For the second consecutive series, a Dodgers opponent ran the balk flag up the pole, and Los Angeles manager?Dave Roberts is growing impatient with it.Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon called the move to first base by Dodgers rookie pitcher Julio Urias Balking 101. In the Dodgers opening round series against the Nationals, Washington manager Dusty Baker said that?Clayton Kershaws move to first base is a balk.You know what, for us, and I have said it all along, is for us to all eliminate noise, Roberts said before Game 4 of the National League Championship Series on Wednesday. I think that its telling when an opposing manager has to pull out certain stops to play the mental game. So for us, that doesnt affect us.For those not keeping score, that would be one balk complaint from Baker, one balk complaint from Maddon and one recognition from Roberts that the Dodgers have their opponents reaching deep into their bag of tricks.Here was Bakers take on Kershaws move to first base during the NL Division Series: I know hes tough to hit and hes tough to run on. Quite frankly, Im hoping we get some baserunners and the umpires might call a balk or two on him because he kind of rolls through the set position -- which they dont call -- but I heard that really upsets him if they do call one. So Im hooping they call maybe a couple of them.ddddddddddddThe umpires did not call a balk on Kershaw during the NLDS.Maddons complaint with Urias was in regard to the angle he takes when stepping toward first base.This was Maddons take on Urias pickoff move when meeting the media on Tuesday: When you get to see it on TV, its pretty obvious, its not even close. Its a very basic tenet regarding what is and what is not a balk. Give him credit, man, for going through with it. Thats part of the game. I think from the umpires perspective, there are certain umpires that are in tune to that, some that are not. There are other balks that I always get annoyed with that arent called. So Im certain that the umpiring crew has been made aware of it. Thats not an interpretation. Thats Balking 101 for me. So well see. Well see how it all plays out.Why worry so much about a move to first base from a 20-year-old pitcher? Well, Urias was actually tied for the major league lead with six pickoffs in just 77 innings pitched in the regular season.And Baker should have probably been complaining about Urias move in the NLDS, not Kershaws. The only pitcher to pick off a runner in that series was Urias.
