The Mariners came up short in its comeback bid against Oakland Wednesday, falling 6-to-3. It was another pitch-by-committee, bullpen kind of day as Robert Dugger took the loss, going 3-and-a-third innings and allowing 5-runs on 5-hits with 1-strikeout and 3-walks.

Gonzales has been out for nearly a month with a strained forearm on his pitching arm. The timing is nearly perfect as Seattle is offering Marco Gonzales bobblehead dolls at T-Mobile Park tonight in the first of four games against the Rangers. If Marco cannot return against the Rangers, he’s expected to make a return next week against Oakland.
