France delivers game-ending hit, Mariners drop Astros 6-5

SEATTLE (AP) – Ty France hit a game-ending RBI single, and the Seattle Mariners beat the depleted Houston Astros 6-5 on Friday night. Seattle earned its third straight win and seventh in nine games overall. Mitch Haniger had three hits for the second time this week. France and Kyle Seager each drove in two runs.

The Mariners trailed 5-4 before Evan White connected for a solo drive in the eighth. J.P. Crawford and Haniger opened the ninth with walks against Ryne Stanek (0-1), and France’s campaign against Ryan Pressly landed on the warning track in right-center and hopped over the wall. Anthony Misiewicz (2-0) worked a scoreless inning for the win after returning from the 10-day injured list earlier in the day.

The short-handed Astros played without four starters – including Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, and Yordan Alvarez – on the injured list due to COVID-19 protocols. But they still had a 5-2 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh. Alex De Goti drove in two runs with his first major league hit, and fellow rookie Chas McCormick had an RBI double. Jose Urquidi struck out seven in 5 2/3 innings.

Seager got the Mariners on the board with a two-run double into the right-field corner in the sixth. Houston’s Aledmys Diaz answered with a two-run double in the seventh. Haniger drove in a run in the seventh, recording his third hit. He has at least one impact in 13 of 14 games this season and has reached safely in every contest.
