Mariners Lose to Braves; Get Ready for Mets

Posted: Updated:
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.
