LHP Raul Valdes retired the only batter he faced Wednesday, lowering his season ERA by 13.50 in the process. When Valdes got Seattle's Dustin Ackley to fly out to end the seventh inning, it dropped his season ERA from 40.50 to 27.00. Wednesday's game marked Valdes' third appearance of the season, and his first without allowing a run.
2B Jose Altuve went 0for-5 Wednesday, marking only the third time in 22 games this season that he has failed to reach base.
