Coming our way on Sunday afternoon from Safeco Field, we've got Major League Baseball action as the Houston Astros and the Seattle Mariners finish up their series. In his 44.2 innings and 4-1 record this year, Peacock has a 2.82 ERA with 66 Ks and 24 BBs. He struck out eight and walked none in his first start since June 8.

"We have busted our tails", Servais said. "I think that's what happens when a whole lineup is kind of moving together really well". "And, it's a positive thing that my arm was feeling good".

Hernandez is the Mariners all-time career leader in wins (156), starts (364), quality starts (242), innings pitched (2442.1) and strikeouts (2286).

Mariners: Sam Gaviglio (3-1) will make his eighth start.

"I thought I got in", Haniger said, "but they thought otherwise".

Devenski followed with 2 2/3 innings of one-hit relief, striking out two. "I got a fastball over the middle, didn't really try to pull it too much, tried to get to where I could drive it and fortunately it went out". With two outs against Steve Cishek, Brain McCann lashed one down the line that Haniger laid out for and had in his glove, but the impact upon landing jarred the ball loose and it trickled away from Haniger to the side wall, allowing the bases to clear and made it 5-1.

In three minor league seasons in the Seattle organization (2015-17), Moore has combined to go 17-8 with a 2.59 ERA in 56 games.

The Mariners pulled to 2-1 in the sixth.

Seattle was still in it in the seventh when the Astros used two singles sandwiching a catcher's interference on Ruiz that allowed Reddick to load the bases with two outs. - M's catcher Mike Zunino. "Haniger gave everything he had to get to the ball and Chooch (Ruiz) missed a big hit late by about a foot".

"I was going insane when I was on the DL". "I just tried to get ahead and stay ahead".

Gaviglio allowed two runs on six hits in six innings, but the Astros had runners in scoring position in each of the first five innings. He walked three and struck out three.

MINUS: The heart of Seattle's order - Cano, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager - went 1-for-10 with three strikeouts Sunday.

He struck out Haniger, Cruz was caught in a rundown on Jarrod Dyson's fielder's choice grounder to second, and Taylor Motter struck out.

"They came up with huge innings and they came in and threw very well", Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of his bullpen.

"This is my first time getting the belt", Feliz said. Miranda has been good for the most part over the last five weeks. In the bottom half, Josh Reddick in left field made an tremendous full-on diving catch toward the infield to rob Jean Segura of a leadoff hit.

"We can't keep absorbing that many innings in the bullpen", Hinch said. "We'll know more tomorrow, but it was easy to not play him tonight". He has yet to throw off a mound since being placed on the 10-day DL retroactive to June 5. The Astros made another roster move, sending RHP Joe Musgrove to Fresno.

Rookie Francis Martes started in place of Brad Peacock who went on the paternity list. Four of the five hits he gave up came in that one fateful inning.

On deck, Astros RHP Mike Fiers (5-2) will take on the Oakland A's Tuesday at Minute Maid Park.

When you're talking about a.500 team, which we are, the Mariners look great some nights, awful on other nights and in between the rest of the time.
