Ex-Mariner Betancourt, Brewers Slam Mariners, 10-5

Posted: Updated:

 

SEATTLE (AP) - Yuniesky Betancourt highlighted Milwaukee's five-run fifth inning with his second grand slam of the season, and the Brewers beat the Seattle Mariners 10-5 on Friday night.

Once the Mariners starting shortstop, Betancourt came back to haunt his former club as the teams opened a three-game series. Betancourt's slam was his 13th homer of the season and he enjoyed every second of going deep against his former team. Betancourt drove the pitch from Joe Saunders out to left, walking and watching as he left the batter's box, then flipped his bat before excitedly running the bases. It was his sixth career grand slam.

Norichika Aoki also drove in three runs as the Brewers scored 10 runs for the first time since June 12.
