Haniger, Encarnación HRs Carry Mariners to 7-4 Win over Twins

Edwin Encarnación did everything for the Mariners on Sunday. He fell a triple shy of the cycle, but his 3-run home run put Seattle out of reach in the 7th inning.

Encarnación flashed the leather a few times as well, including this ridiculous diving catch.

Mitch Haniger and Daniel Vogelbach hit back-to-back dingers to put the Mariners in front for good in the 5th inning.

Winning Pitcher, (3-1) Yusei Kikuchi: 6.0 IP, 3 R (1 ER), 6 K, 2 BB

Losing Pitcher, (4-2) Kyle Gibson: 6.0 IP, 4 ER, 6 K, 0 BB
