MARINERS 10, BREWERS 5 (AT PEORIA STADIUM)
Chris Taylor had a triple and two singles in leading a 14-hit attack, including a sharp single back through the box after getting hit in the wrist on (what was ruled) a foul in the sixth inning.
The Mariners blew a two-run lead Thursday in the ninth to Oakland, and saw a 1-1 tie turn into a 4-1 loss Wednesday when Colorado scored three runs in the ninth.
This time, they build leads of 7-0 and 10-1 before the Brewers scored two runs in the seventh and two more in the ninth.
Mariners starter J.A. Happ yielded just one hit, a disputed single, in three shutout innings after giving up two runs in two innings in his previous start against the Reds.
“I felt little better than last time, for sure,” Happ said. “I felt a little more sharp. Yeah, I was pleased with that.”
Segura tried for second as shortstop Brad Miller chased down the ball — and pitcher Carson Smith hustled from the mound to take the throw and apply the tag for an out.
A 6-1 out at second if you’re scoring.
“That’s a first,” Smith said. “I’ve never had one of those before.”
“I took a practice swing and didn’t feel any sharp pain or anything. It’s just a dull bruise, I think.”
The Diamondbacks plan to start right-hander Ruby De La Rosa.
The Mariners are also expected to use Dominic Leone, Tom Wilhelmsen, Fernando Rodney, Yoervis Medina and Lucas Luetge.
