HOUSTON (AP) - Michael Saunders got Seattle's only hit with a two RBI double with two outs in the seventh inning to lift the Mariners to a 4-2 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.
Erik Bedard (3-7) pitched 6 1-3 innings of no-hit ball before he was replaced by Jose Cisnero, who walked Mike Zunino with two outs before the double by Saunders put Seattle ahead 4-2.
The long fly ball sailed just out of reach of sprinting center fielder Brandon Barnes and landed at the top of Tal's Hill in straightaway center.
The Mariners, who extended their season-high winning streak to five games, tied it in a wacky sixth inning by scoring two runs thanks to a combination of passed balls, walks and a sacrifice fly.
Travis Blackley and Jose Veras each pitched a scoreless inning to complete the one-hitter.
