ATLANTA (AP) - The Seattle Mariners move on to New York today to play the Mets, after losing yesterday to the Braves in Atlanta, 8-3. Mark Teixeira homered three times and drove in four runs for Atlanta. Jeff Clement hit a two-run homer in Seattle's three-run ninth inning.
Today's starting pitchers will be Felix Hernandez for Seattle and Johan Santana for New York. Mariners third baseman Adrian Beltre missed his second straight game with a bruised left index finger. He could return for today's game against the New York Mets. Also, Seattle right-handed pitcher Brandon Morrow, who has had back spasms, is expected to rejoin the team in New York today.
