Game notes

DH Jim Thome (neck) and LHP Troy Patton (ankle) are finishing rehab assignments at the Orioles’ Sarasota facility and could rejoin the club this weekend in Boston. “They’re both close,” manager Buck Showalter said. “We’ll make the call (Thursday).”

RH Miguel Gonzalez and RH Chris Tillman will start in Boston with the third starter to be decided.

Chen is just the fourth Orioles rookie pitcher since 1954 to make at least 30 starts. He joins Bob Milacki (36 in 1989), Tom Phoebus (33 in 1967) and Brian Matusz (32 in 2010).

Felix Hernandez was recognized before the game as the Mariners’ nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award. “That’s a great honor,” manager Eric Wedge said. “Felix is the total package. To see what he does off the field, how he carries himself, how generous he is with his time, with people, it’s well-deserved.”

RHP Hector Noesi, shelled for six runs and eight hits in 1 1-3 innings Monday, is back in the bullpen for the rest of the season. RH Blake Beavan will fill his spot in the rotation, starting Saturday.

Michael Saunders was ejected in the 10th inning for disputing a called third strike.

Justin Smoak and Dustin Ackley each had three hits for the Mariners.

It appeared that Chen would breeze through the fourth after the first two batters bounced out to the infield. Casper Wells then drew a walk on a 3-2 pitch. Miguel Olivo followed with his 11th home run on a 1-2 curve from Chen, who had started him with four straight fastballs.

Ramirez retired the first nine batters before McLouth’s leadoff single in the fourth, just tipping off the glove of second baseman Ackley. He then retired the next eight straight before McLouth’s double to center in the sixth. Center-fielder Franklin Gutierrez caught the ball on a dive but it popped out of his glove on contact with the ground.

Ramirez, recalled from the minors on Sept. 1, matched his career high with eight innings. He allowed four hits and both runs were charged to him. He struck out six and walked no one.

Olivo caught the entire 18 innings.

"This is the first game I catch two games in one," he said.

Wedge said of Olivo, "Miguel is as tough as they come and his drive, his heart and his intensity are second to none. ... you feel for all your guys, but your guy is back there catching 18 innings and fighting through it all."
