Segura’s RBI Single in the 8th Leads Mariners Past SF

Jean Segura’s RBI-single in the bottom of the 8th broke a 2-2 tie and helped the Mariners beat San Francisco 3-2 today at Safeco Field…
MARINERS
Segura helped give the Mariners the lead in the 1st on a sacrifice fly to score Dee Gordon. Seattle added to its lead in the 2nd on a solo home run by Ryon Healy (as trade talks continue to swirl around the Mariner first baseman).

The Giants got things going in the 7th on some defensive gaffs by Seattle. Brandon Belt got aboard on a single and moved to second in Dee Gordon’s throwing error. Belt hurt his knee on the play and was replaced by Chase D’Arnaud. An out later, Brandon Crawford came to the plate and doubled in D’Arnaud.  Hunter Pence followed with an RBI double to tie the game at 2-2.

The game was only available on Facebook Watch Live today. But the Mariners came back on Segura’s RBI single in the 8th to set up a save opportunity for Edwin Diaz in the 9th.  Diaz struck out the side, in order, in the 9th for his 38th save of the season. Seattle next heads to Anaheim on Friday to face the Angels in the first of a three game series.
