PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carlos Ruiz hit a three-run double against his old team while Robinson Cano and Danny Valencia homered as the Seattle Mariners beat the Philadelphia Phillies 11-6 Wednesday.
Ruiz earned another standing ovation a day after he returned and was honored with a video tribute that highlighted his career with the Phillies. The former All-Star catcher was 3 for 30 this season before clearing the bases with a liner off the left-field wall in the seventh against Joaquin Benoit (0-2).
Seattle swept the two-game interleague series. The Phillies have lost 10 of 12.
Tony Zych (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning.
ROCKIES 3, CUBS 0
DENVER (AP) — German Marquez (1-2) allowed three hits over eight innings, struck out eight and got his first major league hit with a two-run single in the seventh off Kyle Hendricks (2-2) .
Marquez had a no-hit bid until Kris Bryant's double leading off the seventh inning.
Greg Holland threw a perfect ninth for his 14th save in as many chances to help the Rockies take two of three from Chicago.
Ian Desmond hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the fourth that was set up by shortstop Javier Baez's error.
GIANTS 6, METS 5
NEW YORK (AP) — Hunter Pence hit a tying single and Christian Arroyo had a three-run double against Jeurys Familia (1-1) in a four-run ninth as San Francisco, a major league-worst 12-23, took advantage of third baseman Wilmer Flores' error to stop a five-game losing streak.
Flores nearly tied the score with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, hitting a two-run double off the top of the left-center fence for his third hit. Derek Law, subbing for injured closer Mark Melancon, retired Kevin Plawecki on a dribbler in front of home plate for his second save.
Bryan Morris (1-0) tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings. Buster Posey homered in every game of the series, connecting in three straight for the third time in his career and first since June 2013.
