Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the American League’s mid-season team MVPs.
Logan Morrison had a pair of runs batted in to help Seattle sweep Houston and give starter Chris Young his eighth win on the season.
In Tuesday’s 13-2 win, Kyle Seager and Robinson Cano had three RBIs apiece, James Jones added two more and a seven-run sixth inning helped the Mariners score a season high in runs.
Rookie James Jones had a career-high four hits and his second three-steal game in the Mariners 10-4 win.
The Seattle Mariners (44-38) head out on the road and start the trip with three games at Houston (36-47), where they won two of three back in May. The M’s beat up the Astros pitching staff that series, plating 21 runs on 29 hits but Houston did the same to the M’s in a very high-scoring series.
Michael Saunders barely beat Astros pitcher Tony Sipp to first base for a two-run infield single with two outs in the seventh inning to lift the Seattle Mariners to a 3-1 win over the Astros.
