Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Fernando Rodney had converted 22 straight save opportunities, but that streak came to a crashing halt for the Tampa Bay Rays closer Tuesday night.

Carlos Pena committed a crucial error in the bottom of the ninth inning and Eric Thames capped a two-run rally in the final frame with a two-out RBI single, as the Seattle Mariners won, 3-2.

Justin Smoak tied the game with a sacrifice fly, and Rodney (2-2) ended up suffering his first blown save since May 26, as the Rays had their season-high seven-game winning streak broken.
