The Mariners loaded the bases agains Mike Leake (5-5) in each of the first two innings. Lee had two-run single in the first and Adam Lind followed with an RBI single to make it 3-0. In the second, a hard ground ball from Cruz got away from third baseman Jhonny Peralta to drive in a run. Seager’s grounder was mishandled by Matt Carpenter as another run scored to make it 5-0 lead.

Matt Holliday had an RBI single in the third and Almedys Diaz clubbed a three-run homer in the fifth for the Cardinals. The Redbirds place the third of the three-game series in Seattle this (Sunday) afternoon. Pre-game coverage is at 2:15, with the first pitch at 3:10-p.m., on KJAN.

SEATTLE (AP) – Adam Lind hit a game-winning three-run home run in the ninth inning off St. Louis closer Trevor Rosenthal, and the Seattle Mariners rallied for a 4-3 win over the Cardinals on Friday night to snap a six-game losing streak.

The Mariners opened the ninth with a double by Kyle Seager and a walk to Dae-Ho Lee. Lind reached down and drove a 1-1 pitch out to right field for his fourth career walk-off home run. It was the third home run allowed this season by Rosenthal (2-3) and his third blown save.

St. Louis had scored three times in the eighth inning without the help of a base hit. Seattle reliever Joaquin Benoit issued three walks and a hit batter and Kyle Seager’s error on Matt Holliday’s hard ground ball allowed two runs to score.
