SEATTLE, April 10 (UPI) -- The Houston Astros banged out 22 hits and scored six runs in the first inning of their 16-9 thumping of the Seattle Mariners.

The Astros came into the contest nursing a six-game losing streak, but were ahead 10-0 by the end of the third inning. Paul Clemens (1-0) was credited with the win in relief.

Chris Carter hit two home runs for Houston. J.D. Martinez and Marwin Gonzalez also knocked it out of the park.

Brandon Mauer (0-2) took the loss for Seattle. He lasted just 2/3 of the first inning and was shelled by six runs on seven hits and struck out two.

Jason Bay had a pinch-hit solo home run for Seattle. Raul Ibanez and Justin Smoak drove in two runs each.

The Mariners outscored Houston 7-2 in the final three innings but came up short.
