Firefighters in 9 will help seal Mariners’ 7-4 victory over the Astros

HOUSTON – The Mariners came to Houston with three consecutive wins.

But two of the three teams he opposed were Baltimore and Texas – all of whom lost their records – and Houston in Seattle.

So can the Mariners continue to play the ball they are fighting against, against the AL West refugee leader and rival?

The answer, in one night, was yes. Even that night Robbie Ray, the AL Cy Young Award winner, was also in trouble.

Cal Raleigh hit third home with a four-run lead, Julio Rodriguez hit twice and the bullpen was excellent, leading the Mariners to a 7-4 victory over the Astros on Monday night.

The game had a final inning, three outings and off the bench after the Mariners’ Ty France hit with a pitch. But it was a long-running project that allowed Seattle to win.

“It’s a fun game tonight, I think that’s the best way to describe it,” said Mariners, Scott Servais. “The place has not been kind for us, and we have to change. Sometimes playing with a little excitement and playing on the sidelines would help, and our boys responded late to the game. It was a good success. “

The Mariners had no history on their side.

He won just four of the last 30 games at the Minute Maid park, including being knocked out of the three-game series last month.

If this were not a problem, Houston founder Cristian Javier did not win the first three games against the Mariners, covering 18 1/3 innings. Javier threw 5 2/3 against Seattle in a 4-0 win over Houston here May 3.

Seattle ended their drought against Javier in the first inning. Rodriguez hit two single-outs in the middle and JP Crawford sent him home with two in the left field.

It took Houston only three rounds to clear the interest rate under the inning. Jose Altuve destroyed Ray’s running ball in the middle of the pitch, and sent it to the left side of the pitch for his 175th career.

The Mariners responded quickly. Adam Frazier led the second round and walked away. Dylan Moore, Finding Rare Start vs. the right jar, hit with wax and one on the outside.

This resulted in Raleigh, hitting .152. Do not copy. The Mariners striker hit the right-hand line in his sixth homer of the season, giving the Mariners a 4-1 lead.

“We are seeing the emergence of Cal Raleigh,” Servais said. “It is coming together for him. He hits the ball hard, with energy, to have the best strikers. “

But Ray, a Cy Young Award winner last year and Toronto who signed a five-year contract worth $ 115 million with Seattle in the offseason, could no longer make it.

Homers writers Kyle Tucker and Chas McCormick scored two, and Altuve knocked unnoticed after a foul throw by Crawford on shortstop to score a goal on 4th.

Raleigh went through the fourth inning. Adam Frazier led the inning with a double, finishing the 0-for-20 race, but it looks like he could be second in Javier with two wickets.

Enter Raleigh, who went through the middle to give Frazier a drink. After unmarried Jesse Winker, Javier’s nightmare took place, allowing five of his received in 3 2/3 innings.

So, for the third time, Ray was offered a job offer. In the first two cases, the facilitator took one. And that would be a disaster if it were not for the defense.

Altuve ripped one to the right field, and Michael Brantley followed and jumped over the wall to the right. Moore threw the ball, threw it well for second-timer Frazier, who threw one shot at Raleigh.

The cat pulled out Altuve, who tried to score from the start.

“The biggest game in the game was a relay throw when we threw the guy on the plate,” Servais said.

Ray was the one who did the smallest fifth job, leaving the bullpen with one steering wheel.

That was good news from his trip. Disadvantages: Once again, he was injured by the wrong entry but did not recover well, allowing the four times eight times and three times.

But he ended up with three wires and it was good enough for him and the Mariners to win, thanks to a mistake and a good job from the bullpen.

“I give Robbie a good reputation because he was so bad, he tried to change and he was able to give us three zeros,” Servais said. “That means everything, allowing us to be there and win the game.”

Said Ray, “It seemed like it was on my stuff, so I knew I had to change and I started mixing a little bit.”

Penn Murfee threw 1 2/3 innings without a score. Ryan Borucki made his first appearance for his Mariners team, leading Houston slugger Yordan Alvarez to finish seventh.

Sergio Romo solved the eighth problem, with a side hit.

The Mariners got insurance when Julio Rodriguez hit two homers in the ninth, just after France was hit by Hector Neris which caused both teams to be out of the field.

“He threw the ball behind Ty France, obviously,” Servais said.

There were many jaws, but not much more than that. Servais was fired, though he later did not confirm why.

“The benches were removed and [the umpires] he intervened and acted, and that is what he did, “Servais said of his release.

After Rodriguez ‘homer, Neris threw back Eugenio Suarez. Neris, who was warned, was fired this time, along with Astros manager Dusty Baker.

After the game, Diego Castillo closed with a small play at the end of the ninth. This guaranteed the Mariners their first win of the season and made them one win in a row.
