Beltre's 11th Inning Homer Leads Mariners Over Twins 4-2

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE (AP) - Adrian Beltre homered in the bottom of the 11th
inning last night, and the Seattle Mariners beat Minnesota 4-2 in
Seattle. It was Seattle's second game-ending home run of the month
and season, and the sixth walkoff homer of Beltre's career.
With one out in the 11th, Jesse Crain (5-4) walked Raul Ibanez
on a full count. Then Beltre drilled a low, first-pitch fastball
over the left-field fence to give Seattle the win. After he rounded
the bases, Beltre was swarmed by teammates at home plate.
Joe Nathan blew his fourth save in 38 chances in the ninth, when
Beltre scored after a leadoff double.
R.A. Dickey pitched a perfect top of the 11th for Seattle, which
won for just the third time in 11 games.
