HOUSTON (AP) — When Seattle reliever Alex Colome
#1
saw Houston’s Tony Kemp knock his pitch into center field with one on in the eighth inning Jose Bautista Jersey , he was certain it would be an extra-base hit.Guillermo Heredia made sure that wasn’t the case.Heredia made a spectacular case to preserve Seattle’s lead, Ryon Healy had three hits and drove in the go-ahead run, and the Mariners beat the Astros 3-2 on Saturday night.It was yet another win in a close game by the Mariners, who have taken three straight from their AL West rivals and improved to 44-17 this season in games decided by one or two runs.Seattle trailed 2-0 before scoring all of its runs with a two-out rally in the fourth. Nelson Cruz singled and scored on a double by Kyle Seager that sailed over Kemp’s head in center field. Chris Hermann tripled to right field to tie it.Healy put the Mariners on top with a single but was out at second trying to stretch it into a double.With no outs and a runner at first in the eighth, Kemp hit a ball to center field that looked sure to drop in for a hit. Heredia raced to track it down and grabbed it as he fell to the ground. He popped up and threw to first to complete the double play.“What a catch,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “Everybody knows G is an awesome defender and never takes pitches off, but that play, that was the game.”Even Heredia didn’t think he would be able to get to it off the bat.“I charged the ball to catch it, but I didn’t think I had a chance http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-tebow-jersey ,” he said. “At the end I said: ‘Oh yeah, I got it.'”An incredulous Kemp put both hands on his head as he slowly trotted back to the dugout.“They put Heredia in for defense almost every night he doesn’t play, so that tells you enough what they think about his defensive ability,” Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. “He got a pretty decent break on it. It was a sizeable gap … and then the ball hangs up just enough that he makes a great circus catch. I still wasn’t sure that he caught it until he came up ready to throw pretty excited.”Colome said the catch, which helped him extend his streak of scoreless innings to 18 2/3, was the best he’s seen while on the mound.Wade LeBlanc (7-2) allowed three hits and two runs in five innings. Four relievers allowed a combined two hits in three innings before Edwin Diaz struck out two in a perfect ninth for his MLB-leading 45th save in 48 opportunities.Charlie Morton (12-3) yielded seven hits and three runs in six innings for his first loss since July 1.The Astros took an early lead on a two-run single by Tyler White in the second. Houston didn’t have another baserunner until White walked to open the fifth. But LeBlanc got three routine outs to end the inning and his night.Seattle had a chance to add to the lead in the sixth when Span singled to start the inning and Cruz singled with one out. But Seager grounded into a double play.ALWAYS BE CLOSINGDiaz got his third save in as many games and his 45 saves are tied for second-most in a season in franchise history. Fernando Rodney ranks first with 48 in 2014.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: RHP Erasmo Ramirez, who hasn’t pitched since April 27 because of a shoulder injury, will come off the disabled list to start on Sunday.Astros: OF Jake Marisnick was placed on the 10-day disabled list with groin discomfort after he was injured running the bases on Friday night. OF Kyle Tucker was recalled from Triple-A Fresno to take his spot on the roster.UP NEXTHouston left-hander Dallas Keuchel (9-9, 3.53 ERA) opposes Ramirez (0-2 Devin Mesoraco Jersey , 10.24) when the series concludes on Sunday. Keuchel has won six of his last seven decisions and allowed just three hits and one run in his last start but did not factor in the decision in a 2-1 win over the Giants. Ramirez is taking Felix Hernandez’s spot in the rotation after the longtime Mariners ace, who has struggled all season, was demoted to the bullpen on Thursday night. PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) — The budget-minded Tampa Bay Rays have renewed the contract of pitcher Blake Snell, who’s receiving a raise of only $15,500 after winning the AL Cy Young award last season.The 26-year-old left-hander, who’s not yet eligible for salary arbitration, will earn $573,700 this year after making $558 http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-tebow-jersey ,200 in 2018, when he was a first-time All-Star and went 21-5 with an AL-leading 1.89 ERA over 31 starts.The Rays announced the decision Sunday, adhering to a rigid club policy for compensating young players not yet eligible for arbitration.Snell, who led the AL in victories after winning just 11 games combined over the previous two seasons, has accrued 2 years, 72 days years of service — this year’s cutoff was 2 years, 134 days.The pitcher’s agents, Adam Karon and Tripper Johnson of Sosnick, Cobbe & Karon Pedro Martinez Jersey , issued a statement on behalf of Snell, who allowed two or fewer runs in 27 of 31 starts and limited opponents to an .088 batting average with runners in scoring position last season.“The Rays have the right under the collective-bargaining agreement to renew me at or near the league-minimum salary,” Snell said.“They also have the ability to more adequately compensate me, as other organizations have done with players who have similar achievements to mine. The Rays chose the former,” he said. “I will have no further comment and look forward to competing with my teammates and field staff in our quest to win the World Series in 2019.”The major league minimum salary increases from $545,000 to $555,000 this season.
