Once is an accident. Twice is a coincidence. 14 times is a trend that might not stop.

The Mariners have allowed 10-plus runs in a game this season 14 times, which leads Major League Baseball.

Through three innings, it looked like this game would be a fun back and forth battle. In the 5th inning, the Astros took a 4-1 lead.

Daniel Vogelbach helped the M’s take the lead in the 6th with a bases-clearing pinch-hit 3-Run Double, which put Seattle up 5-4.

The Astros went on to score the final seven runs of the game.

Winning Pitcher, (1-0) Reymin Guduan: 0.1 IP, 0 ER, 0 K, 0 BB

Losing Pitcher, (2-4) Brandon Brennan: 1.0 IP, 3 ER, 0 K, 2 BB
