SEATTLE (AP) — Martin Maldonado and Tyler White helped the Astros build an eight-run lead http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-edinson-volquez-jersey , and Houston’s bullpen made it hold after a little scare in the sixth inning.Maldonado and White each homered and had three hits, Roberto Osuna got his first save with Houston and the Astros beat the Seattle Mariners 10-7 on Wednesday.The Astros led 9-1 before the Mariners got one back in the fifth and added five more in the sixth, all off starter Charlie Morton (13-3).After Joe Smith and Tony Sipp closed out the sixth, Ryan Pressly, Hector Rondon and Osuna pitched a scoreless inning each.“You can’t hate how you win if you win,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “It was good for us, especially the last three innings with the guys we threw. That’s exactly how you draw it up. All three were dominant. The way those guys responded and held it down was pretty nice.”Osuna pitched the ninth to earn his 10th save. The closer was acquired from Toronto last month and joined the team a week later after finishing a 75-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy.Maldonado had three RBIs and White had two. Maldonado was acquired from the Angels on July 26.“Overall, the way we swung the bats was pretty impressive,” Hinch said. “Today it was a complete offense. And Martin has come over and provided a nice spark for us.”Marco Gonzales (12-9) was pitching on eight days of rest but allowed eight runs and 11 hits before leaving with no one out in the fourth. Gonzales has given up 23 earned runs and 38 hits in his last 20 innings over four starts.“I don’t think Marco threw the ball that badly,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “Obviously Elvis Andrus Jersey , it had been eight days since he’d been out there. They put some balls in play, got some hits, hit a few balls hard. It just wasn’t a clean outing for him.”The Astros took a 2-0 lead in the first with an RBI triple for White before Gonzales’ wild pitch enabled White to score from third. White’s home run came in the ninth.“It was a fun game today,” White said. “I’m just trying to help this team any way possible. I’ve learned not to press and just enjoy playing with these guys.”The big inning for the Astros was the fourth, when they sent 10 to the plate and scored five runs to take an 8-1 lead.Gonzales gave up six consecutive hits to start the inning before he was replaced by reliever Nick Rumbelow.“I had trouble keeping them off-balance today,” Gonzales said. “I think we have a lot of time left to get everything firing on all cylinders. This team has done a great job of when one part struggles, the other part steps up. We have September to get hot.”Maldonado’s homer came one inning later to make it 9-1.Oakland’s 4-2 loss to Texas on Wednesday gives the Astros a one-game lead in the AL West.Nelson Cruz and Mitch Haniger each had home runs for the Mariners. Cruz hit an upper-deck shot in the fourth for his 31st homer. Haniger’s two-run homer in the sixth inning was his 20th of the season.CANO AT THIRDRobinson Cano started at third base, the first time in his 14-year career he has played there. Cano also hit his 525th double, tying him with Ted Williams for 45th of the career list.MARINERS ROSTER MOVELHP Ross Detwiler was designated for assignment and Rumbelow was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.TRAINER’S ROOMAstros: OF George Springer (quad soreness) did not play in the three games at Seattle. “We’re all frustrated,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said about Springer. “We’ll aim for Friday.”Mariners: LHP James Paxton (bruised left forearm) will not come off the DL this weekend in Arizona and probably won’t make his next start until sometime next week.UP NEXTAstros: LHP Dallas Keuchel (9-10 Ivan Rodriguez Jersey , 3:59) is expected to start Friday to begin a three-game series in Anaheim.Mariners: A three-game series at Arizona starts Friday, and RHP Erasmo Ramirez (0-2, 5.49) is the likely starter for the opener. Servais said the rest of the weekend will depend on when RHP Mike Leake is ready to return. Leake missed his schedule start Tuesday because of an illness. NEW YORK (AP) — Through the first 14 innings of their homestand, the New York Yankees had five errors and four hits. A restless crowd was booing the team in pinstripes on a 96-degree night.Then all of a sudden, the Bronx Bombers snapped out of it in a big way.Pinch-hitter Neil Walker connected for a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning, and New York rallied from a four-run deficit to defeat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Tuesday.“It’s not easy for us right now,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “We’re kind of grinding through some things. It’s a tough stretch. But these guys continue to find a way.”Aaron Hicks hit a tying homer in the eighth and rookie Miguel Andujar also had a two-run shot to help the injury-depleted Yankees win for the ninth time in 11 games. With the second-best record in the majors (84-48), they remained 6½ games behind first-place Boston in the AL East.Walker batted for Ronald Torreyes with one out and launched the first pitch he saw from Dylan Covey (4-12) way over the right-center wall for his first career pinch-hit homer and second game-ending drive. As he neared home plate, Walker tossed his helmet high in the air and was swarmed by happy teammates.“As a pinch-hitter, you try to assume that the first pitch you see is going to be the best pitch you see. You try to be aggressive http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-shin-soo-choo-jersey , just try to be on time,” explained Walker, who acknowledged the Yankees are tired. “That’s obviously as much as you can ask for tonight.”With the Yankees down by two, Giancarlo Stanton singled leading off the eighth to stop an 0-for-14 slide. Hicks drove a full-count pitch from Juan Minaya to right and shouted toward the Yankees’ dugout as he trotted to first.“Just a big relief,” Brett Gardner said. “A lot of excitement.”Dellin Betances (4-3) struck out two in a perfect ninth.New York was blanked on one hit by James Shields over the first five innings. Gardner began the comeback with a leadoff triple in the sixth , and Andujar connected for his 22nd homer two outs later.Shields left leading 4-2 with two on in the sixth. He remained 5-15 overall, tied with Baltimore right-hander Alex Cobb for the most losses in the majors.“Pretty good outing overall,” Shields said. “Unfortunately, my record is not really showing how I’ve pitched this year. Sometimes that happens. … Overall, I’m really pleased with my season.”Flashing signs of improvement Prince Fielder Jersey , the young, rebuilding White Sox had won four straight and 10 of 13.“We’ve been playing really good baseball,” Shields said. “That’s a game we can’t let go right there. That’s a learning process for these guys, and situational pitching is very important in this game. We have to do a better job of that.”Chicago chased Yankees starter Lance Lynn with consecutive two-out singles in the sixth. Yolmer Sanchez greeted Jonathan Holder with an RBI single, and Nicky Delmonico made it 4-0 when he plopped a two-run single into left field.Delmonico scored easily from first base in the fifth when Gardner bobbled Avisail Garcia’s RBI double in left.WHAT’S IN A NAME?Fittingly, Walker’s home run was the 80th walk-off homer in the majors this season. That matched the record set in 2004, according to Major League Baseball. “He’s just a true pro,” Gardner said.MILESTONE MANThe 36-year-old Shields threw 98 pitches in the heat but hasn’t won on the road since opening day at Kansas City. It was his 400th career start. “I’m pretty proud of that,” he said. “Pretty special.”TRAINER’S ROOMWhite Sox: SS Tim Anderson tripped over an oncoming Delmonico on Greg Bird’s eighth-inning popup, but held onto the ball. Anderson exited with a bruised left ankle and is day to day. “I’m assuming he’ll be fine http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-adrian-beltre-jersey ,” manager Rick Renteria said. Anderson was replaced in the ninth by Jose Rondon.Yankees: RF Aaron Judge said his broken right wrist remains sore to the touch and he still hasn’t started swinging a bat. “It’s getting better every couple of days,” he said. “They told me I can play before it completely heals.” The slugger was injured July 26. “It takes about six weeks for something like this to fully heal,” Judge said. “I’m not that close yet. I’ll wake up one of these days and feel good. I’m just waiting for that day.” … C Gary Sanchez (strained right groin) was the DH in his second rehab game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He has homered in both games. … SS Didi Gregorius (bruised left heel) took grounders hit right at him and could begin running Wednesday. It remains to be seen whether he’ll need a minor league rehab assignment before coming off the DL. … All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman (left knee tendinitis) was scheduled to receive a second platelet-rich plasma injection Tuesday, according to Boone.UP NEXTWhite Sox: RHP Reynaldo Lopez (4-9, 4.66 ERA) makes his first start at Yankee Stadium in the series finale Wednesday night. Lopez is 0-4 with a 6.70 ERA in his last nine outings, getting a no-decision in each of the past five. But he pitched well Aug. 7 against New York, permitting one run in seven innings.Yankees: CC Sabathia (7-4, 3.30) seeks his 245th career win.
