M’s Rookie Elias Picks Up First MLB Win in Texas
Seattle Mariner Rookie Roenis Elias picked up his first Major League win last night in Texas as the Mariners beat the Rangers 7-1. The Cuban rookie worked into the 7th inning giving up five hits, one run and struck out 5 in 6 and 2/3 innings. It was his first win in three starts.
Mike Zunino hit his third home run of the year to give the Mariners a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning and added an RBI single in Seattle's strange six-run outburst that included three Texas Rangers errors and a replay reversal that gave the Mariners a run in their 7-1 victory Monday night.
The Mariners (7-5) take on the Rangers in game two of a four game series tonight in Arlington. Blake Beaven gets his first start for the Mariners tonight, left-hander Robert Ross goes for the Rangers (6-7).
