MILWAUKEE (AP) --- Daniel Vogelbach hit a two-run homer to lift the Seattle
Mariners to an 8-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night for their
first interleague win in five tries this season.
Marco Gonzales (9-6) pitched five innings to earn his fourth consecutive win
for the Mariners, who are playing at Miller Park for the first time since 2010.
Four Mariners' relievers shut out the Brewers over the final four innings.
After the Brewers got a run in the first, the Mariners scored four times in the
third off Milwaukee starter Zach Davies (7-2). J.P. Crawford drove in a run
with a triple and Domingo Santana plated another with a double off the glove of
Milwaukee shortstop Orlando Arcia. Vogelbach capped it with his 19th homer, a
two-run, 419-foot shot into the second deck in right.
Seattle added two more runs in the fourth, aided by shoddy fielding by the
Brewers. Mac Williamson drew a lead-off walk, reached second on one throwing
error and scored on another. A second run came across on a Crawford's ground
Dee Gordon's run-scoring double in the fifth extended the lead to 7-1.
Yasmani Grandal hit a solo homer and Jesus Aguilar had a run-scoring single for
Milwaukee in the fifth off Gonzales, who gave up eight hits and three runs.
Davies gave up six hits and six runs in four innings.
Mariners: RHP Sam Tuivailala, who is recovering from a torn right Achilles
tendon sustained last year, surrendered five runs (four earned) and five hits
in just two-thirds of an inning in a rehab assignment on Sunday for Class A
Brewers: OF Lorenzo Cain sat out after having a cryotherapy procedure on his
right thumb in Los Angeles earlier in the day. "It just got to the point where
we have to do something a little more to give him a chance to get past the
pain," manager Craig Counsell said. "It has been affecting him, there's no
question about it." Cain, who sat out Sunday's game against Cincinnati before
Milwaukee's off-day on Monday, likely will miss Wednesday's game against
Seattle. Ben Gamel took Cain's spot in the lineup.
Mariners: Seattle will use a yet-to-be announced opening pitcher before turning
to Wade LeBlanc (4-2, 5.44 ERA). LeBlanc is 4-1 with a 3.82 ERA in 13 career
appearances against Milwaukee.
Brewers: Adrian Houser (2-1, 2.27) will make his third start of the season,
replacing struggling Jimmy Nelson in the rotation. Houser has made 14 relief
appearances this season.
