M's Drop 4th Straight, Fall To Astros 6-1

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Brad Peacock gave up one run in six innings and Chris Carter singled in two runs to lead the Houston Astros to a 6-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night.

The Astros - who have the worst record in the majors (50-96) - won all three games in Seattle for their third sweep of the season, and first since early June.

In the lone bright spot for the Mariners, Kendrys Morales hit the 100th home run of his career. Seattle has lost four straight at home and starts a 10-game trip on Friday.

Peacock (5-5) allowed four hits, struck out four, walked one and retired the final nine batters he faced.

Josh Zeid got out of an eighth-inning jam and finished the ninth for his first career save.

Brandon Maurer (4-8) allowed five runs - all scoring with two outs - and seven hits in three innings.
