Kyle Seager, who has been off to an unusually labored start, picked a perfect time to muscle-up for the Seattle Mariners earlier today.

After falling behind by three runs and being shutout through six innings, the M's finally rid themselves of Rangers starting pitcher Andrew Cashner and then cashed in themselves, Seattle scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to tie and then M's third baseman Kyle Seager yanked a pitch to right-center for a solo shot in the eighth to complete the Mariners come-from-behind victory.

Seattle raised their season record to 15-17 (after starting 2-8) and moved within a half game of Los Angeles for second place in the AL West - still 6 behind the front-running Houston Astros.

Seattle is off tomorrow before starting a series against the Phillies in Philadelphia.
