Mariners score 4 in 9th to take down Twins

twins, mariners

Cal Raleigh hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning, and the Seattle Mariners scored four runs in the ninth to secure a 10-6 win over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night in Minneapolis.

Mitch Haniger drove in two runs for Seattle, which evened the four-game series at one win each. Dylan Moore, Josh Rojas and Ty France added one RBI apiece for the Mariners, who won for the third time in four games.

Mariners right-hander Ryne Stanek (1-0) earned the win in relief.

Ryan Jeffers hit a three-run homer to lead the Twins at the plate. Trevor Larnach, Kyle Farmer and Austin Martin each added one RBI for Minnesota.

Twins right-hander Jorge Alcala (1-1) took the loss after surrendering four runs in two innings.

Seattle started the scoring with two runs in the second inning.

Haniger fell behind 0-2 in the count before he drilled a leadoff homer to left-center field. With two outs, Moore hit an RBI double to score Luis Urias.

The Twins scored four runs in the third to pull ahead 4-2.

Larnach had runners on first and second base with two outs when he ripped a single to right field to score Jose Miranda. That put runners on first and third for Jeffers, who belted a three-run shot to left field for his seventh homer.

Raleigh’s grand slam in the seventh gave the Mariners a 6-4 advantage. His 445-foot blast to left field also drove in Mitch Garver, Urias and Moore.

In the bottom of the seventh, the Twins pulled within 6-5. Miranda hit a leadoff double and scored on Farmer’s double to center.

Minnesota added one more run in the eighth to pull even at 6-6.

Martin reached on an infield single with a headfirst slide into first base. Mariners pitcher Taylor Saucedo injured himself while covering first base, and Max Kepler sprinted home as Saucedo writhed in the dirt. After the game, Mariners manager Scott Servais said Saucedo injured his knee and will be sidelined indefinitely.

Seattle broke the tie with four runs in the top of the ninth.

Rojas hit an RBI single and Haniger contributed a sacrifice fly to make it 8-6. Rojas scored on a wild pitch to give Seattle a three-run lead, and France finished the scoring with an RBI single to left field.
