HOUSTON (AP) — Rookie Jake Meyers homered and drove in four runs as the Houston Astros jumped on Yusei Kikuchi early and sailed to an 11-2 win over the Seattle Mariners.
Kikuchi allowed three hits but was done in by an error behind him and four walks over 1 2/3 innings in his shortest start this season. He gave up six runs, four of which were earned.
The victory ended a two-game skid for the AL West leaders and snapped Seattle’s five-game winning streak. The Mariners are three games out in the AL Wild Card race.
