M's Lose 8th Straight at Home

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE, Wash. (AP) -- Andrew Miller limited Seattle to one run and six hits over seven innings, and the Florida Marlins beat the Mariners 6-1 on Monday night.

Just hours after Seattle fired Bill Bavasi, in his fifth season as general manager, the punchless Mariners went out and lost their eighth straight at home, their longest home losing streak in nearly 12 years. They are 22 games under .500 (24-46).

Miller (5-5) matched his career high completing seven innings, struck out two and retired 12 of the final 14 batters he faced. Miller won for the first time in his last five starts.

Luis Gonzalez drove in two runs for the Marlins, who rebounded from losing two of three to Tampa Bay over the weekend.

Seattle starter Carlos Silva (3-8) gave up two runs in the firstinning. He was ejected with two outs in the fifth when he argued a call at first.
