SEATTLE -- Without wavering, Chris Young will say it each time he is asked: Individual wins are not important to him. Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping . Its about the teams success, the veteran right-hander says, going to painstaking lengths to get his point across. Young reached his first double-digit win total in a season since 2006 on Wednesday, but it truly was a team effort this time around as the Seattle Mariners sent the Atlanta Braves to a season-high eighth straight loss with a 7-3 victory. It is the first time since May 2012 that the Braves, who were swept at Dodger Stadium and San Diego before losing two straight at Safeco Field, have lost eight in a row. "You cant get caught up in wins and losses as a starting pitcher. One day the media will stop evaluating us on that," Young said with a laugh. Young (10-6), who allowed all three runs in the third, was immediately picked up by his teammates, as the Mariners responded with a four-run third. Dustin Ackley led off with a home run and Logan Morrison added a three-run shot off Julio Teheran (10-8) for a 5-3 lead. Teheran was wildly inconsistent in six innings, yielding six runs in three frames, while allowing just one baserunner in the other three innings. Even after allowing Ackleys homer, Teheran appeared to have settled down with two quick outs and a 3-2 advantage. Kyle Seager and Chris Taylor hit back-to-back singles, though, and Morrison deposited a fastball into the right-field seats. After Young protected the 5-3 lead through the fifth, the bullpen took over. After a quick hit, four Seattle relievers combined to throw four innings of scoreless relief, allowing three hits. "Its nice to have an eight-man bullpen with so many quality arms down there, so many choices," Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said. Seager drove in Seattles first run with a single in the first, and Taylor and Kendrys Morales later added RBI singles. The Braves scored all three runs in the third, with Freddie Freeman driving in two with a bases-loaded double, but Tommy La Stella was thrown out trying to score from first on the play. "Its just not matching up right now," Braves outfielder Jason Heyward said. "Its not clicking on all cylinders at the same time for us." TRAINERS ROOM Braves: SS Andrelton Simmons, who sprained his left ankle during Tuesdays game, was wearing an air cast and using crutches on Wednesday morning. He still hopes to avoid time on the disabled list. Mariners: OF Michael Saunders, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique, will join Triple-A Tacomaon Thursday to begin a rehab assignment. McClendon said Saunders will DH before moving to the outfield. ... INF Willie Bloomquist did not get a positive report after being checked out by a doctor on Wednesday and will get a second opinion on his bruised right knee. UP NEXT Braves: Atlanta returns home to start a 10-game homestand against the Nationals on Friday. Ervin Santana (10-6) lost his only career start against Washington. Mariners: Rookie Roenis Elias (8-9) will make his second career start against the White Sox on Thursday. Elias allowed five runs in five innings in Chicago on July 4. ACK-ATTACK Ackley continues his torrid pace at the plate and is hitting .346 (37-107) since July 1 after collecting two hits, including the home run. HOME VS. AWAY Teheran did nothing to help boost his road stats. The right-hander entered the game 6-6 with a 3.91 ERA away from Turner Field. At home, Teheran is 4-1 with a 1.48 ERA, which is tied for the major league lead in that category. Wholesale Jerseys From China . With a heave by his right arm, the Florida State freshman delivered the ball in stride. Winston threw for four touchdowns, including a 55-yard score as time expired in the first half on Saturday to help No. Wholesale Jerseys .S. -- Carl-Antoine Delisle snapped a tie in the third period with his second goal of the game to lead the Tigres past Cape Breton 4-3 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action Wednesday as Victoriaville won its eighth in a row. MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins postponed their series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday because of inclement weather, the second straight game they had washed out at Target Field. The Twins announced the decision in the early afternoon, more than six hours before the scheduled first pitch, and slotted the makeup for Thursday as part of a day-night doubleheader. The Twins had a day off on Monday, meaning they havent played since Saturday afternoon. Coaches and players came to the ballpark to work out a little bit and try to stay limber, while a cold, wet system stayed stuck over Minnesota with a forecast to linger well into the week. Temperatures have been in the high 30s and low 40s, with steady rain falling since Saturday night and a bit of snow mixed in at times, too. "They feel like they havent been out there in a year, and its only been a few days," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said, adding: "Mother Natures winning right now." The predicted high for Wednesday was 45 degrees, with the chance of precipitation pegged at 70 per cent, so that game could be in trouble, too. "Mother Nature is what Mother Nature is. Thats one of those many aspects of life and baseball that you cant do anything about," said right-hander Kyle Gibson, who was supposed to start on Sunday, and on Tuesday, and will now take the mound on Wednesday opposite Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke. Maybe. "You hope that we can step right back into it and get into a flow," Gardenhire said. Well, if the weather wont relent, theres always an NHL playoff game to watch. The Wild will play at Colorado in Game 7 of their first-round series on Wednesday night. "Im going to challenge something early and get thrown out of the game and come in here and watch hockey," Gardenhire joked in his office. The Dodgers, who were to begin a nine-game road trip, werent available for comment. They were scheduled to startt Dan Haren on Wednesday and Josh Beckett on Thursday, but their rotation for the reshuffled series was yet to be determined. Wholesale Jerseys US. The Twins picked Mike Pelfrey for the original game on Thursday afternoon, but Gardenhire said they hadnt determined the starter for the makeup game on Thursday night. Ricky Nolascos turn would be next, but teams are allowed to call up a 26th player for doubleheaders. So a Triple-A pitcher could make a spot start if either or both teams wanted to avoid using Greinke and/or Gibson on short rest this Sunday. This was the 11th postponed game for the Twins in five seasons at Target Field, six of which have been over the past two Aprils. Their scheduled series finale on Sunday against the Tigers was pushed to either August or September when the Tigers make their return trips. Rescheduling the Dodgers would be far more difficult, because this is their only planned visit. The next common day off for the teams is May 19, when the Dodgers would have to make a one-day stop between series in Arizona and New York. There are only two other mutual openings on the 2014 schedule outside of the All-Star break, but those would require the Dodgers (July 28) and Twins (August 25) to play 24 straight days. The collective bargaining agreement prohibits teams from being scheduled to play more than 20 straight days. If the Dodgers are forced to make a return trip, theyll probably have Clayton Kershaw with them. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner, who has been on the disabled list for the first time in his career with a back muscle injury since winning the teams season opener, will make his second minor league rehabilitation start on Wednesday for Double-A Chattanooga, the Dodgers announced on Monday. Kershaw said over the weekend he felt ready to return, but the team preferred to be cautious with their $215 million ace. Kershaw pitched five innings on Saturday for Class A Rancho Cucamonga. ' ' '
