Seattle starting pitcher Marco Gonzales struggled early tonight, then completely turned things around after Austin Nola’s three-run homer put Seattle ahead and the Mariners went on to 7-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Monday night at T-Mobile Park.
After Austin Nola’s home run in the second inning, Gonzales retired 13 consecutive hitters before a two-out single in the sixth inning. But the game was already in hand by then, Mallex Smth hit a two-run single in the fourth inning and J.P. Crawford had a run-scoring single in the sixth to push the Mariners lead to 6-2.
It was a good night for the Mariners offense, which put up more than three runs for just the second time in nine games since the All-Star break.
Up next Seattle(41-62) continues their series against Texas tomorrow night from T-Mobile Park. First pitch is set for 7:10pm.
