Matt Dominguez had two hits for the Astros, who struck out 15 times as a team. Justin Maxwell drove in a run and Marwin Gonzalez homered.

Kendry Morales hit a home run for the Mariners. Hisashi Iwakuma (2-1) was handed the loss after an otherwise solid start. Iwakuma allowed three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and struck out 11 in five innings.
