Posted: Updated:

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Jason Vargas took a shutout into the seventh inning, Michael Saunders had two RBIs, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 on Saturday night.

 

Vargas (10-7) gave up one run and seven hits in six-plus innings as the Mariners stopped a nine-game losing streak against the Rays.

 

Seattle loaded the bases with two outs in the first and took a 2-0 lead on Saunders' line single to left off Alex Cobb (4-7), who left after bruising his right lower leg after the second.

 

Tom Wilhelmsen, the fourth Seattle reliever, pitched the ninth for his ninth save.

 

Desmond Jennings singled against Vargas leading off the seventh and scored to cut deficit to 2-1 when right fielder Ichiro Suzuki made a bad throw to third attempting to record an out on Jose Labaton's single.
