The Seattle Mariners needed back-to-back home runs in the first inning, then three consecutive sacrifice bunts in the seventh to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 11-7.
They needed all that offense in part because Seattle pitchers walked eight batters, something manager Don Wakamatsu wasn't happy with.
"Some of those were four-pitch walks by our bullpen, and that just won't cut it," he said.
Homers by Wladimir Balentien and Russell Branyan put the Mariners up 4-0 early, but the Diamondbacks caught them a 7-7.

Then Jamie Burke, Ronny Cedeno and Tyson Gillies dropped bunts, and when Arizona's infield couldn't handle two of them, Seattle scored four runs.
The victory left the Mariners 6-2-1 heading into a day off.
