Astros hit 3 HRs, finish winning trip by beating Seattle 8-2

Mariners catcher Mike Zunino celebrates at home plate after hitting a home run in the third inning against the Twins

Yet all anyone in the Astros clubhouse talked about after the game was the performance of the bullpen.

Felix Hernandez was anxious for his opportunity to be back on the mound pitching for Seattle for the first time in almost two months. This should be a pretty decent pitching matchup, but considering the Astros' offensive capabilities I'm a little more comfortable with them. "All of those guys came in and did a nice job of stretching themselves to their limitations".

"Kind of a momentum play in the game", Servais said.

"This is my first time getting the belt", Feliz said.

McCullers retired the first 12 hitters, striking out six, before Cruz beat out a single on his slow roller to third to open the fifth inning. "I got a fastball over the middle, didn't really try to pull it too much, tried to get to where I could drive it and fortunately it went out". "That was a good team win there". Cano managed a hit and an RBI on Saturday, while Cruz put up two hits.

"We're obviously a deep group out there", Harris said. "I thought I had a shot".

"A.J. made the right call". The 27-year-old has won his last three decisions and allowed two or fewer runs in five of his seven big-league turns.

"It might be a different game, you know", Cano said.

As for those tape-measure home runs?

Houston rallied from an early two-run hole to defeat the Mariners, 8-2, in front of 33,010 at Safeco Field. It was the longest home run hit at Safeco Field this season.

The Mariners didn't have another base runner until the seventh inning. Altuve was credited with an infield single and advanced to second on the error.

With Boston leading 4-2, reliever Matt Barnes started the inning by walking Jorge Bonifacio and Lorenzo Cain on 12 pitches. Alexander allowed one inherited runner to score. "I was happy with where the pitch was, but it was too good", Scott said.

That was the only inning in which the Astros threatened against Miranda. All four of the runs he gave up came in the fourth inning.

Houston Astros' Evan Gattis belts a two-run home run against the Seattle Mariners in the ninth inning of a baseball game Sunday, June 25, 2017, in Seattle.

Josh Reddick got the scoring started in the 3rd, launching a two-run bomb to straight away center. Martes has allowed four earned runs in 10 2/3 innings in his two starts.

McCann's seventh-inning double increased the lead to 5-1. Two runners scored easily. Haniger, however, was called out by home-plate umpire Lance Barksdale.

George Springer led off the inning with a single, then was awarded another base when second-base umpire Angel Hernandez called Gaviglio for a balk on a pick-off attempt. Well, if the call stands, he was originally called out.

That led Hinch to return to the dugout, the crowd to boo lustily and Servais to come out of the dugout to confront Hernandez.

"Gaviglio did a real good job, about all we could ask for", Servais said. Not quite sure what the people in NY are looking at.

NOTES: The Astros went 6-1 on their seven-game trip. The Astros are now 51-25 overall and 28-9 on the road. Houston and Seattle are both off Monday. RHP Francis Martes (2-0, 5.02 ERA) will start for Peacock on Sunday against Seattle LHP Ariel Miranda (6-3, 4.04). The Mariners wrap up their nine-game homestand with a two-game series against Philadelphia beginning Tuesday. Phillies ace Aaron Nola (4-5, 4.32) opposes him.
