SEATTLE (AP) — Shed Long Jr. hit a grand slam with two outs in the 10th inning, lifting the Seattle Mariners over the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2 for a four-game sweep.
The Rays owned the best record in the majors before their current six-game losing streak.
Long’s first homer of the season came against Diego Castillo. Dylan Moore started Seattle’s 10th with a bunt hit when Castillo’s throw to third was too late to catch designated runner Taylor Trammell, who was pinch-running for Ty France. Trammell then got caught in a rundown between third and home on Jake Bauers’ grounder for the first out.
Luis Torrens drew a walk to load the bases and Jake Fraley popped out before Long’s shot to right field.
