Reds salvage game of series against Mariners
Cincinnati exploded for nine runs in two late innings to beat Seattle 11-5 Thursday at T-Mobile Park, winning the final game of the three-game interleague series.
Freddy Galvis hit a grand slam in a five-run seventh inning and Curt Casali and Eugenio Suarez each hit two-run homers in the eighth inning for Cincinnati (68-79).
Justin Dunn made his major-league debut for Seattle, but he walked five batters in the first inning and only got outs via two sacrifice flies.
But, trailing 2-0, Seattle rallied to lead 5-2 on home runs: a solo shot by Kyle Lewis (homering in his third consecutive big-league game) and two-run shots by Omar Narvaez and Dylan Moore.
The Mariners (60-87) play a three-game home series against the Chicago White Sox next. In Friday's 7 p.m. series opener, Yusei Kikuchi (6-9, 5.24) pitches for Seattle opposite Dylan Covey (1-8, 7.69).
