HOUSTON (AP) - Joe Saunders pitched neatly into the sixth inning for his first win in a month, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Houston Astros 3-1 on Saturday night for their third consecutive victory.

Kendrys Morales, Nick Franklin and Dustin Ackley each drove in a run for the Mariners, who had lost six in a row before the series against the major league-worst Astros. They will have Hisashi Iwakuma on the mound when they go for a series sweep.

Saunders (11-13) yielded an unearned run and six hits over 5 1-3 innings in his first win since Aug. 4 at Baltimore. The left-hander was 0-3 with an 8.31 ERA in his previous four starts.
