Saunders hits 2 HRs as Mariners beat Orioles 8-4

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) - Michael Saunders homered twice and drove in five runs, Erasmo Ramirez retired 18 of the first 20 batters he faced and the Seattle Mariners beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-4 Saturday night to end a four-game losing streak.

 

Saunders hit a three-run drive in the fifth and added a clinching two-run shot in the ninth. It was his fifth career two-homer game, the second this season.

 

Justin Smoak homered and went 3 for 3 with two walks for the Mariners, who had lost 10 of their previous 12 games against Baltimore. Brad Miller had three hits and Kendrys Morales singled twice in his fifth straight multihit game.

 

Ramirez (3-0) gave up four runs and four hits in six-plus innings to win his third straight start. The right-hander struck out six and walked none.
