Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON (AP) - Felix Hernandez pitched six scoreless innings for his 100th career win and Seattle homered three times to back him up in a 7-1 victory over the Houston Astros on Monday night.

Hernandez (2-2) reached the milestone in his fourth try to join Jamie Moyer (145) and Randy Johnson (130) as the only pitchers to reach 100 wins with the Mariners.

Hernandez allowed five hits and struck out nine to lower his ERA to 2.08.

Kyle Seager, Jesus Montero and Kendrys Morales all homered for the Mariners, who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Rick Ankiel hit a solo homer for the Astros, who fell to 5-14 for the second-worst start in franchise history. They opened 4-20 in 1969, according to STATS.
