Notes: Olivo recorded his third golden sombrero of the season in Wednesday night’s extra-inning game against the Yankees. In his first sombrero, Olivo accomplished the feat while hitting cleanup for the Mariners. This time around, the aging backstop did it out of the six-hole. His second sombrero also came against the Yankees in late July, and he’s now tied with Adam Dunn, Kelly Johnson, Jayson Werth and Grady Sizemore for the league lead. And I wouldn’t rule out it happening again this season considering that his strikeout rate sits at 28%, which is above his career strikeout rate of 26.4%, and he’s already made the most plate appearances of his career.
