Ruiz leads Mariners over Phillies, Rockies blank Cubs


PHILADELPH­IA: Carlos Ruiz hit a three-run double against his old team, while Robinson Cano and Danny Valencia homered as the Seattle Mariners beat the Philadelph­ia Phillies 11-6 on Wednesday.

Ruiz earned another standing ovation a day after he returned and was honoured with a video tribute that highlighte­d his career with the Phillies. The former AllStar catcher was 3 for 30 this season before clearing the bases with a liner off the leftfield wall in the seventh against Joaquin Benoit (0-2).

In Denver, German Marquez (1-2) allowed three hits over eight innings, struck out eight and got his first major league hit with a two-run single in the seventh off Kyle Hendricks (2-2) as the Rockies blanked the Cubs 3-0.

Marquez had a no-hit bid until Kris Bryant’s double leading off the seventh inning.

Hunter Pence hit a tying single and Christian Arroyo had a three-run double against Jeurys Familia (1-1) in a four-run ninth as San Francisco, a major leaguewors­t 12-23, took advantage of third baseman Wilmer Flores’ error to stop a fivegame losing streak with a 6-5 win over the Mets.

Carlos Correa had two doubles and two RBIs for Houston, who beat the Braves 4-2, while the Athletics scored a 3-1 win over the Angels.

In Wahsington, Matt Wieters hit a winning, two-run single in the bottom of the ninth inning against his former team, ending Baltimore’s six-game winning streak with a 7-6 win for the Nationals.

Ryan Goins singled home the winning run off Cody Allen (0-1) in the ninth, capping Toronto’s comeback from a 7-3, thirdinnin­g deficit as the Blue Jays edged the Indians 8-7.

Chris Archer (3-1) allowed five hits in eight shut-out innings to win for the first time in five starts since April 14 and help Tampa Bay stop a three-game losing streak with a 12-1 rout of the Royals.

Pinch-hitter Dexter Fowler, out of the starting line-up for the past six games because of a sore lat, hit a go-ahead, tworun triple in the sixth off Jarlin Garcia (0-1) as St Louis overcame a four-run deficit for the second game in a row to beat the Marlins 7-5.

The Cardinals went 6-0 on their swing through Atlanta and Miami. It’s the first time they’ve gone undefeated on a trip of at least six games in their 126-year history.

In Los Angeles, Kenta Maeda pitched into the ninth inning, while Cody Bellinger homered and made a tumbling catch in left field as Los Angeles beat Pittsburgh 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep.

Zack Godley allowed four hits in seven innings after being called up from Triple-A in time to make his second start of the season as Arizona ended a three-game losing streak with a 7-1 victory over the Tigers.
