Seattle Mariners

Ryon Healy homered and tied a career high with five RBIs, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 6-4 win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

Healy, who had a two-run double in the first inning, put Seattle ahead for good with his three-run homer — his 18th of the season — in the sixth inning. He entered the game in an 0-for-13 slump.

Wade LeBlanc (5-0) picked up the win despite giving up four runs and allowing three homers to the Rockies in six innings. The three homers allowed were the most by LeBlanc in an appearance this season.

Edwin Diaz struck out all three batters he faced in the ninth for his major league-leading 35th save.

Charlie Blackmon, Carlos Gonzalez and Trevor Story hit the homers for the Rockies, who snapped a five-game winning streak.

Blackmon gave the Rockies a 1-0 lead in the top of the first with his 17th home run. The Mariners answered in the bottom of the inning, loading the bases for Kyle Seager’s sacrifice fly and again for Healy’s double.

Gonzalez led off the fifth inning with his eighth homer for Colorado, and Story gave the Rockies a 4-3 lead in the top of the sixth with a two-run shot, his 17th.

In the bottom of the inning, Nelson Cruz walked and Kyle Seager singled. One out later, Healey homered to left field.

Colorado starter Antonio Senzatela (3-2) allowed all six runs and five hits, walking three with two strikeouts. Senzatela was making his second start of the season after opening the year in the bullpen and a stint in Triple-A Albuquerque. He pitched seven scoreless innings in his previous outing on July 3.

The six runs allowed also ended a streak of eight games where Rockies starters allowed two runs or fewer, which tied a team record.


Rockies: SS Story was back in the starting lineup, one day after snapping his consecutive games played streak at 139 due to a bruised right foot.

Mariners: Dee Gordon started at second base after missing a game with a sore hip. … Manager Scott Servais said C Mike Zunino, who went on the DL Thursday with a left ankle bone bruise, has an “outside chance” at returning to the team after the All Star break.


Rockies: LHP Tyler Anderson (6-3, 3.90 ERA) starts Tuesday at Arizona. Anderson is 4-0 in 11 road starts this season, and has thrown eight scoreless innings in his last two starts.

Mariners: RHP Mike Leake (8-5, 4.11) takes the mound in Los Angeles against the Angels on Tuesday as the Mariners start a six-game road trip. Leake earned a loss against the Angels in his last start, giving up four runs in four innings.
