Lee’s 2 RBIs, Martin’s 3 hits lead Mariners past Cardinals
SEATTLE (AP) _ Dae-Ho Lee drove in two runs and Leonys Martin had three hits to help Nathan Karns get his first win in almost a month as the Seattle Mariners beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 on Saturday night.
Karns (6-2) gave up four runs and five hits in five innings for his first victory since May 30, and Steve Cishek got the last three uts for his 17th save of the season.
The Mariners loaded the bases against Mike Leake (5-5) in each of the first two innings. Lee had two-run single in the first and Adam Lind followed with an RBI single to make it 3-0.
In the second, a hard ground ball from Cruz got away from third baseman Jhonny Peralta to drive in a run. Seager’s grounder was mishandled by Matt Carpenter as another run scored to make it 5-0 lead.
Matt Holliday had an RBI single in the third and Almedys Diaz clubbed a three-run homer in the fifth for the Cardinals.
