HOUSTON (AP) — Yusei Kikuchi took a no-hit bid into the the seventh inning, Taylor Trammell homered and the Seattle Mariners beat the Houston Astros 1-0 on Thursday to stop a four-game losing streak.

Kikuchi (1-1) did not allow a hit until Carlos Correa doubled to deep right- centre field with one out in the seventh.

That was the only hit allowed by Kikuchi, who pitched seven innings, struck out seven and walked two. Anthony Misiewicz pitched a perfect eighth and Kendall Graveman a one-hit ninth for his third save, completing a two-hitter.

Trammell hit his fourth home run of the season in the third inning off Luis Garcia (0-3), a ball that appeared to graze the glove of a leaping Chas McCormick at the right-field wall.

ORIOLES 4, YANKEES 3

BALTIMORE (AP) — Cedric Mullins delivered a winning sacrifice fly in the 10th inning against Jonathan Loaisiga (2-1).

Trey Mancini had his first three-hit game since returning from colon cancer surgery, including had an RBI single in the first and a tying solo homer in the sixth off Jordan Montgomery.

Gleyber Torres had a tying double in the ninth, and Rougned Odor hit a two-run single.

Tanner Scott (1-2) pitched a scoreless 10th.

CARDINALS 4, PHILLIES 3

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tyler O’Neil scored on a game-ending wild pitch from David Hale (0-1) in the 10th inning, gaining a four-game split.

Alex Reyes (1-0) pitched two perfect innings.

Matt Carpenter put the Cardinals ahead in the sixth with a three-run, pinch-homer off Aaron Nola, a ball that bounced out of the outstretched glove of Roman Quinn at the top of the right-field wall.

ATHLETICS 3, RAYS 2

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Matt Chapman homered and hit a go-ahead double against Diego Castillo (0-2) with two outs in the ninth.

Shane McClanahan, a Tampa Bay left-hander starting on the day after his 24th birthday, made an unusual regular-season debut, becoming the fourth player to appear in the regular season after first playing in the post-season . He gave up two runs and five hits in four innings, throwing at up to 100.5 mph.

Jake Diekman (1-0) pitched a perfect eighth, and Lou Trivino finished for his fourth save.
