SEATTLE (AP) – Dustin Ackley drove in three runs and Jason Vargas pitched seven strong innings to lead the Seattle Mariners to their sixth consecutive victory, 7-2 over the Toronto Blue Jays last night. Vargas allowed two runs and five hits. He walked one and struck out four. The last time the Mariners won six consecutive games was May 18-23, 2011.

SEATTLE (AP) – The Seattle Mariners restocked their bullpen by recalling right-hander Stephen Pryor and selecting righty Carter Capps from Triple-A Tacoma. The Mariners made the moves yesterday before their game against Toronto. Seattle was down two pitchers in the bullpen after trades Monday that sent Steve Delabar to Toronto and Brandon League to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) – The Seattle Seahawks have signed veteran wide receiver Braylon Edwards, adding another experienced pass catcher to the training camp competition for the No. 2 receiver spot. Edwards signed his deal with the Seahawks yesterday morning. The 29-year-old Edwards played in nine games last season for San Francisco.

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) – A Montana State men’s basketball player from Washington state is one of two being suspended after a weekend arrest for stealing from parked vehicles. Coach Brad Huse says junior forwards Jeff Budinich of Maple Valley, Wash., and Tre Johnson of Reno, Nev., will not participate in team-related activities after violating program rules.
