The Minnesota Twins couldn't stop the big inning, allowing the Seattle Mariners to run away with a 5-1 win on Sunday at Safeco Field.
Samuel Deduno was wild on the hill in his start for the Twins, walking six in six innings, but he was able to limit the damage to just two runs on five hits. Jeff Gray struggled in relief, giving up three runs in one inning of work.
The Twins struck first on a Trevor Plouffe sacrifice fly in the top of the second, however it would be all Mariners after that. A bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the third tied the game, and then the Mariners took the lead later in the inning when Jesus Montero hit into a double play that scored a run.
In the seventh, the Mariners broke the game open with three runs, highlighted by a two-run home run for Michael Saunders that put the game out of reach.
