Ruf's late homer sinks Mariners
Seattle let one slip away Tuesday at San Francisco.
The Mariners blew a big lead and the Giants rallied to win 6-5, as pinch-hitter Darin Ruf hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the seventh inning at Oracle Park. It ended Seattle's six-game winning streak.
The second game of the two-game interleague set will be 6:45 p.m. Wednesday. Nick Margevicius pitches for Seattle opposite Tyler Anderson (an ex-Oregon Ducks player).
J.P. Crawford hit a bases-clearing double in the second inning and the Mariners (19-23) led 5-1 after Jose Marmolejos' RBI single in the third inning.
But, the Giants rallied, thanks to a solo homer by Alex Dickerson and a two-run shot by Mauricio Dubon.
Then, Ruf went deep off reliever Anthony Misiewicz in the seventh inning.
Donovan Solano had three hits and two runs scored for San Francisco (22-21).
