Mariners' Penn Murfee: Another shut-down outing

Murfee allowed zero runs on zero hits and one walk while striking out one over two innings Monday against the Yankees.

The 28-year-old has not been prone to give free passes with just two walks in 22.2 innings over his last 20 appearances.

Mariners' Penn Murfee: Gets first win Friday

Murfee (1-0) recorded his first win in a victory over the Rangers on Friday, firing a scoreless eighth inning during which he allowed a hit and recorded two strikeouts.

Murfee is putting together an outstanding rookie campaign that now sees him carrying a 1.02 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 31.8 percent strikeout rate in addition to his one win.
