Miller Hits Two Home Runs In Mariners Win

Brad Miller hit a pair of home runs, his first two of his Major League career, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Houston Astros, 10-7, on Friday night at Minute Maid Park.

Kyle Seager started the power parade with his 16th blast of the season to mark the 23rd straight game the Mariners have hit a home run. Miller hit his first career home run in the sixth, a two-run shot, and then hit a three-run blast in the eighth.

Justin Smoak added a solo shot in the ninth.

Mike Zunino walked three times and scored three runs and Dustin Ackley added a two-run double for the Mariners.

Joe Saunders (9-8) worked 5 1/3 innings of three-run ball, striking out six and walking three. Danny Farquhar and Oliver Perez were a bit shaky in relief, as was Tom Wilhelmsen, who gave up a run in 1 2/3 innings. Wilhelmsen shut the door, though, and notched his 20th save.

Brandon Barnes went 5-for-5 and hit for the cycle for the Astros.
