SEATTLE (AP) - Yovani Gallardo took a shutout into the sixth inning and the Seattle Mariners beat the New York Mets 3-2 on Saturday, ending Jacob deGrom's eight-start winning streak.
Gallardo (5-7), banished to the bullpen in mid-June, allowed one run and five hits in 5 2/3 innings in his second outing since returning to the rotation. He struck out two and walked two, flashing back to the form when he won 72 games over five seasons with Milwaukee.
Edwin Diaz pitched the ninth for his 19th save, despite allowing an RBI single by Michael Conforto.
De Grom (12-4), bidding to become the first Mets pitcher to win nine consecutive starts in a single season, allowed three runs and five hits in six innings, needing 109 pitches. He gave up a two-run single to Jarrod Dyson in the second and an unearned run in the third.
