Volstad, Marlins win home game in Seattle 4-2

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) _ Chris Volstad drove in a run in an AL ballpark and pitched into the seventh inning and won for the first time since April and the Florida Marlins beat the Seattle Mariners 4-2 Saturday night. In the game moved from Miami because of an upcoming concert at the Marlins' stadium, Volstad (3-7) batted for himself because the game was played under NL rules. He also kept the ice-cold Mariners to two runs on five hits before leaving with two outs in the seventh. It was Volstad's first victory since April 26 and only the third Florida victory in the month of June. Leo Nunez pitched a perfect ninth inning for his 21st save of the season. Jason Vargas (5-5) gave up four runs and eight hits in six innings for Seattle.
