Mariners Lose Sixth Straight

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ Jeff Keppinger hit a two-run homer and Desmond Jennings added a two-run triple to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Seattle Mariners 4-3 Thursday to complete a four-game sweep.

Jeff Niemann (2-3) allowed three runs and seven hits over 5 1-3 innings as the Rays extended their winning streak to five with their 11th victory in 12 games.

The Mariners concluded 10-day, 10-game road trip with a season-high six-game losing streak. The skid came right after a four-game winning streak that included a sweep of Detroit to begin their three-city trip.

The Rays scored all of their runs in the second inning, with Keppinger and Jennings delivering the biggest hits of the day off Kevin Millwood (0-3).
