Mariners' bats come alive in win over Orioles

Baltimore, MD ( - Robinson Cano slugged a tie-breaking three-run homer in the top of the fifth inning to help power the Seattle Mariners to a 6-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Cano's blast was backed by 4 2/3 innings of one-run ball from the Seattle bullpen, with Dominic Leone (4-2) notching the victory by retiring all five batters he faced in relief of James Paxton.

Kendrys Morales added a two-run single for the Mariners and Dustin Ackley finished 3-for-5 with a solo homer and three runs scored in the victory.

Paxton was removed after 4 1/3 innings and 83 pitches in his return from a nearly four month-long stint on the disabled list due to lat and shoulder injuries. The rookie permitted two runs and struck out five.

Miguel Gonzalez (5-6) allowed both Seattle homers to absorb the loss and was reached for seven hits in five innings.

Caleb Joseph went 2-for-3 with a solo home run for Baltimore, while Manny Machado collected three hits in defeat.
