Kelley unavailable after Tuesday's long game
BALTIMORE -- The one residual of Tuesday's 14-inning loss to the Orioles was that right-handed reliever Shawn Kelley was unavailable for Wednesday's game after throwing 2 1/3 innings before Baltimore scored the winning run off him in a game where the two teams used 13 pitchers combined.

The 2 1/3 innings matched Kelley's longest stint of his career and his 38 pitches were the most he's thrown since a 43-pitch outing in a two-inning appearance as a rookie in 2009 against the A's.

"I'm fine, but it's a little sore," Kelley said as he prepared to go for some treatment on his arm before Wednesday's series finale. "We were getting thin, so I was going to do whatever I could to get us through three, if I could."

Manager Eric Wedge said rookie Carter Capps would have come in next had the game gone another inning, with closer Tom Wilhelmsen being held in reserve for if the Mariners could take the lead in the game on the road.
