The New York Jets have signed four players to their 10-man
practice squad ,
including 2017 sixth-round pick Jeremy Clark.

The defensive back, who played both safety and cornerback during training
camp, joined safety Brandon Bryant and linebackers Frankie Luvu and Anthony Wint
on the practice squad Sunday.

Clark missed almost all of last season while recovering from a knee injury
suffered while playing at Michigan. He played in the regular-season finale last
December against New England.

Bryant signed with the Jets after going unselected in this year's
supplemental draft. The former Mississippi State star had six tackles in New
York's preseason finale at Philadelphia.

Luvu, an undrafted free agent out of Washington State, had an impressive camp
while running with the Jets' first-team defense at times.

Wint was signed by New York after rookie minicamp following a standout career
at Florida International.

Instead of using the long ball to win, the Seattle
Mariners took a different approach.

Take a walk, drop down a bunt, make a play in the field. Employing those
basic skills, the Mariners beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 Monday night for just
their second victory in eight games.

Dee Gordon’s slick seventh-inning bunt was the lone hit in a two-run uprising
that put Seattle ahead for good Nick

back on track after losing successive series at Yankee Stadium and in

”Most definitely, it’s the little things that win ball games and we were
trying to do those things tonight,” said left fielder Denard Span, who
contributed a solo homer and a run-saving catch. ”Last couple series we weren’t
able to do that, but tonight we were able to manufacture a win.”

Gordon gave the Mariners an early lead with a two-run single , then provided
the key hit in a seventh inning that began with score tied at 3.

Guillermo Heredia drew a leadoff walk from Miguel Castro (2-3) and advanced
when Gordon pushed a bunt inside the first-base line and beat the throw by a

”Dee’s a really accomplished bunter, trying to move people along. That’s his
game,” manager Scott Servais said.

A walk then loaded the bases, and Heredia scored on a wild pitch before
Gordon scooted home on a sacrifice fly by Mitch Haniger.

”We drew a lot of walks Travis

 , went deep into counts, bunts, sac flies,” Servais
said. ”Been doing that most of the season. That’s the way we’re built. We don’t
want to rely just on the home runs.”

Backed by several fine defensive plays – most notably by shortstop Jean
Segura – Seattle starter Felix Hernandez (7-6) earned his first win in four
starts, allowing three runs in six innings.

Edwin Diaz worked the ninth for his major league-leading 28th save.

Jonathan Schoop homered and had two RBIs for the Orioles.

In the ninth inning, Baltimore reliever Darren O’Day was called for a balk
and subsequently ejected by home plate umpire Stu Scheurwater for arguing.
Manager Buck Showalter joined the fray, and earned his 32nd career ejection

”He’s just over-umpiring. Inventing an argument,” Showalter insisted,
pointing out that both of Day’s career balks have been called by

The manager did Adam Shaheen
 , however, concede that the Orioles didn’t do enough to

”We walked 10 guys. Did have but four hits,” Showalter said. ”Kind of hard to
win a game.”

Seattle jumped on top in the second inning when Orioles starter Andrew
Cashner gave up three walks and Gordon’s bases-loaded single.

Schoop led off the fifth with his eighth home run, only the second long ball
allowed by Hernandez in five starts this month.

Span answered with a solo shot in the sixth for a 3-1 lead, but Baltimore
pulled even in the bottom half on run-scoring grounders by Trey Mancini and
