Fister takes no-hit bid into 7th, Mariners win 8-2

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) _ Doug Fister took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and Ken Griffey Jr. and Casey Kotchman combined to drive in five runs as the Seattle Mariners beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-2 Monday.  After a two-out walk in the first, Fister (2-1) retired the next 16 batters in a row before Nick Markakis opened the seventh with a clean single to center. 

Griffey had a two-run single in the Mariners' 7-run third inning and Kotchman hit a two-run home run in the third and a RBI double in the seventh.

Jack Wilson also had three hits, including two doubles.  Orioles starter Brad Bergesen (0-2) lasted only 2 2-3 innings.  He was charged with six hits, seven runs, though only four were earned, and walked three without a strikeout.
