On Wednesday, the Seattle Mariners were unable to give the hometown crowd at Safeco Field much to cheer about other than fireworks for the Fourth of July. Seattle starter Hector Noesi once again gave up too many runs and the Mariners offense was unable to pick him up as the M's lost the rubber game by a final score of 4-2.
The Mariners trailed 4-0 under the very last inning, when they finally managed to plate a pair of runs and avoid the shutout, but it was too little, too late.
Adam Jones led off the top of the second with his 20th home run of the year. The O's added another two runs in the top of the third and scored a final run off of Noesi in the fifth.
Baltimore starter Chris Tillman held the Mariners to just one hit through the first eight innings, but in the bottom of the ninth, Seattle finally got on the board thanks to an RBI single by Kyle Seager and an RBI single by Justin Smoak.
