Seattle MarinersHouston Astros in a 5-2 loss

the score 2-1

The "other" Kyle -- veteran third baseman -- Seager, tried to single-handedly pull the M's back to within striking distance with a solo bomb of his own to tighten things back up at 5-2.

However, it was all for naught as the Astros bullpen ratcheted the save to pull within a half game in the A.L. West standings behind the Mariners. With the Oakland Athletics winning for the 14th time in their last 15 outings to maintain their stronghold on first place, Seattle still finds themselves 2 games off of the pace in the division.

The two teams continue their four-game series on Tuesday (April 27) with game 2 at Minute Maid Park deep in the heart of Texas with first pitch slated for 5:10 p.m.(Pacific).

Astros - 5, Mariners - 2
