Span would steal second against Evan Marshall, and came around to score on a throwing error for the walkoff win. Perez was charged with the run and the loss. He dropped to 2-3.

Mariners could use up to four pitchers to close


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2013) The Mariners could mix and match as many as four relievers to close games, now that Tom Wilhelmsen has been removed from the closer's role.

"As of right now, maybe like in the past, we'll piece it together and match up and go from there," acting manager Robby Thompson told MLB.com Friday. "Those games like that and even closer games where we've got the lead, we've got to find a way to win the ballgame."

Thompson said Oliver Perez, Charlie Furbush, Yoervis Medina and Danny Farquhar could all see closing chances while the team tries to sort out the back of the bullpen.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Though the team is currently 10 1/2 games out, general manager Jack Zduriencik said he's not shopping anyone. Zduriencik doesn't want the team to sell off veterans if it means recently promoted youngsters will have to fill prime roles. "We don't want to force [Mike] Zunino to hit cleanup," he said.

Outfielder Michael Morse and closer Tom Wilhelmsen are also seen as potential targets.
