Gilbert sharp as Diamondbacks hurt Mariners again in 5-4 win

Posted

SEATTLE (AP) — Tyler Gilbert gave up two hits in another sharp outing, Ketel Marte homered and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Seattle Mariners 5-4 on Sunday.

Arizona did more damage to the Mariners’ AL wild-card hopes with its second straight win, taking the series from a team that was surging just two days ago. Seattle is now three games behind Boston for the second wild-card spot with the Red Sox coming to town Monday for a three-game series.

The Diamondbacks broke open a 1-1 game with four consecutive hits off reliever Anthony Misiewicz (4-5) to start the sixth inning. Henry Ramos’ two-run double made it 3-1 and rookie Seth Beer finished off the string of hits with an RBI single.

Gilbert (2-2) allowed two hits – solo home runs by Mitch Haniger in the fourth and Dylan Moore in the sixth – over 5 1/3 innings. The rookie left-hander, who started his career with a no-hitter last month, struck out two in his sixth start.

Four relievers combined for 2 2/3 innings of hitless relief before J.B. Wendelken gave up an infield single to Luis Torrens and a two-run homer to Jarred Kelenic on a nine-pitch at-bat. But he finished the ninth with a strikeout and a putout at first to earn his first save.

ROSTER MOVE

The Mariners have reinstated LHP Tyler Anderson from the bereavement list. He’s scheduled to make his regular start Tuesday when Seattle hosts Boston. The team optioned INF Kevin Padlo to Triple-A Tacoma to make room on the roster.

UP NEXT

Diamondbacks: RHP Zac Gallen (2-9, 4.32) takes the mound when Arizona travels to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday. He is 1-2 with a 2.19 ERA in his last four starts with 27 strikeouts in 24 2/3 innings.

Mariners: RHP Logan Gilbert (5-5, 5.10) takes the mound against Boston on Monday with a chance to make up ground in the wild-card race. He’s lost his last three decisions.
