Seager's homer in 8th sends Mariners past Royals 4-2

Seager's homer in 8th sends Mariners past Royals 4-2”

Seattle scored on a sacrifice fly and a wild pitch in the first inning, but the Royals tied it in the fourth inning on Paulo Orlando's two-run double.

Three relievers - Nick Vincent, Juan Nicasio and Edwin Diaz (fourth save) - kept the Royals scoreless the rest of the way.

Felix Hernandez pitched into the sixth inning, Guillermo Heredia homered and the Seattle Mariners bounced back from a blowout loss to Kansas City with an 8-3 rout of the Royals on Tuesday night.

Dee Gordon and Robinson Cano had a hit apiece while extending hitting streaks. Seager finished the game with three RBIs and two hits.

Hernandez (2-1), who was shelled his last time out in San Francisco, allowed three runs, six hits and a walk in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked three. Seager launched Justin Grimm's pitch deep to right field where it just cleared a leaping Jorge Soler's glove for a two-hit homer.

What turned into a pitchers' duel Wednesday looked as if it'd be a high-scoring affair in the first inning.

Paxton scattered six hits and a walk while keeping the Royals at bay. Servais said he hopes Cruz will be able to return to the lineup this weekend. DH Nelson Cruz (sprained right ankle) and C Mike Zunino (strained left oblique) are close behind.

Royals: RHP Nate Karns (elbow inflammation) continues to throw side sessions, and Yost said the last hurdle to his return is some fluid on the outside of his elbow dissipating.

The Mariners (6-4) will begin a three game home series with the Athletics on Friday.

Kansas City opens up a four-game series with the Los Angeles Angels Thursday.
