SEATTLE -- Munenori Kawasaki was credited with an infield single Wednesday after a safe call at first base stood in the ninth inning of the Mariners' 2-0 victory over the Blue Jays at Safeco Field.

Facing Mariners closer Fernando Rodney with one out, Kawasaki hit a ground ball that deflected off the glove of first baseman Logan Morrison. The ricochet bounced to Robinson Cano, who fielded and threw to first as Rodney covered.

After umpire C.B. Bucknor initially ruled safe, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon issued a challenge and the call was upheld after a review.

Rodney then got Juan Francisco to fly out to center field and Anthony Gose to strike out swinging to end the game. Rodney is tied for first in the American League with 35 saves and has blown just three save opportunities this season.
