Mariners Held To One Hit, Still Win

The Seattle Mariners managed just one hit, but still came out on top in a 4-2 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday at Minute Maid Park.

Astros starter Erik Bedard threw 6 1/3 innings of no-hit ball, but was credited for the loss after allowing three runs on five walks. Bedard struck out 10 and tossed 109 pitches. The Mariners finally got their first hit when Michael Saunders hit a two-run double off Houston reliever Jose Cisneros in the seventh.

It is the first time a Major League Baseball team has scored four or more runs on just one hit.

Hisashi Iwakuma pitched seven innings of two-run ball to earn the win. Tom Wilhelmsen pitched around a walk in the ninth for his 21st save.
