Right-hander Brandon Maurer will be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to start for the injury-plagued Mariners on Sunday.

Apple Maps Steer Alaskans onto Runway

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-09_13080ad0b2.jpgHemera/Thinkstock(FAIRBANKS, Alaska) -- While Apple Maps caught their share of flak for inaccurate topographies and misleading directions, most of these mistakes didn't potentially have drivers coming head to head with a 747. However, the Alaska Dispatch reports a flaw with the mapping app had two different drivers following their phones from the highway onto an access ramp at Fairbanks International Airport. 

From there, both drivers nosed their vehicles right onto the runway.

Airport personnel informed Apple of the flaw, and physically blocked the runway.  Meanwhile, Apple blanked out the route entirely until they can fix the flaw.

Melissa Osborn, chief of operations at the airport, told the paper, "We asked them to disable the map for Fairbanks until they could correct it, thinking it would be better to have nothing show up than to take the chance that one more person would do this."
