Mariners Rally Back to Down Braves

Posted:
ATLANTA (AP) - John Buck had three hits, including a two-run homer in the seventh inning that gave Seattle the lead, and the Mariners rallied to beat the Atlanta Braves 7-5 Tuesday night for their fourth straight win.
    
The Braves led 4-0 in the first inning and 5-2 in the second before falling to the Mariners' comeback. Buck's homer, his first of the season, came off Alex Wood (5-6), Atlanta's third pitcher. The shot to right field drove in Dustin Ackley, who had a two-out single.
    
The Turner Field air, normally thick with humidity, was unusually dry and that helped the teams combine for four homers.
    
Seattle pinch-hitter Stefen Romero hit a three-run homer in the fourth that tied the game 5-all. Evan Gattis and B.J. Upton hit homers for the Braves.
    
Dominic Leone (2-0) had four strikeouts in two perfect innings.
