Gutierrez’s Walk-Off Homer in the 10th Seals Seattle Victory Over Toronto
SEATTLE (AP) — Franklin Gutierrez homered with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning Sunday to give Seattle a 6-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays, a game the Mariners kept close with the aid of a triple play.
Gutierrez jumped on an 0-2 pitch from Aaron Loup (2-5) and drove it over the wall in left-center for his third homer.
Nelson Cruz brought the Mariners even at 5-5 in the seventh with his 25th home run, a two-run shot to left off Bo Schultz.
With Toronto leading 4-3, the Mariners turned a triple play in the fourth inning. Ezequiel Carrera drew a leadoff walk and moved to third on Kevin Pillar's single. Ryan Goings bounced out to first and Pillar was hung up between first and second, and Carrera stuck between third and home. Both runners ended up at third base and each was tagged out by catcher Mike Zunino.
