Seager Leads Mariners Past Padres
Kyle Seager had four hits and three RBIs, and the Seattle Mariners stopped a five-game losing streak with a 5-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday.
Hisashi Iwakuma pitched eight sharp innings for Seattle, allowing one run on Brad Snyder's first career homer in the second and six hits. Charlie Furbush then got three outs to complete the six-hitter.
Iwakuma improved to 2-1 with a 1.61 ERA in three starts this month. The right-hander struck out six and walked none in his fourth start this season of eight innings.
Seager drove in Endy Chavez and Robinson Cano with a two-out double in the fifth inning, lifting Seattle to a 2-1 lead.
