Big Inning? Big Deal. M's Rally for 9-7 Win

Posted: Updated:

 

SEATTLE (AP) - Humberto Quintero's two-run homer highlighted a six-run fifth inning, and the Seattle Mariners rallied for a 9-7 victory over Toronto on Wednesday to spoil the return of Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ.

Happ made his first start since May 7, when he suffered a skull fracture and a sprained right knee after being struck behind the left ear by a line drive from Tampa Bay's Desmond Jennings. Happ left the field on a stretcher, spent the night in the hospital and had three months of rehabilitation, primarily for the knee.

Presented with a 7-2 lead by the third inning, Happ couldn't deny the fifth-inning rally, leaving with the bases loaded and no outs.

Brandon Maurer (3-7), who allowed eight baserunners and no runs in 3 1-3 innings, earned the win.
