Harang Throws 2 Hit Gem In Win Over Astros

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Aaron Harang pitched a two-hitter for his second shoutout of the season, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 4-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.


Harang (3-6) struck out a season-high 10, the 12th time in his career he had 10 Ks with no walks. It was his 15th career complete game and eighth shutout. He also beat San Diego 9-0 on May 27.


Harang allowed a two-out infield single to deep short by J.D. Martinez in the second inning. He then retired 16 of the next 17 batters. The only Astros batter to reach during that span was Brandon Barnes on a sixth-inning error.


Martinez also had the other hit, an inning-opening single to left in the seventh. He never advanced past first.


Raul Ibanez hit his team-leading 13th home run - his second in an many nights - in the sixth inning.
