SEATTLE – Alex Bregman had two hits and three RBIs, and seven other Astros drove in at least one run as Houston beat the Seattle Mariners 11-5 Tuesday night for its fifth straight win.

Despite playing without Jose Altuve, George Springer and Carlos Correa, the Astros have won 9 of 11 and are 5-0 during this trip. They also are 5-0 this season against the Mariners, who have lost four straight.

The Mariners lead 5-4 after six innings before the Astros scored three runs in the seventh and four in the eighth.

Daniel Vogelbach’s base-loaded double with two outs in the sixth briefly gave the Mariners the lead. Vogelbach pinch hit for designated hitter Tim Beckham after the Mariners loaded the bases, trailing 4-2.

Astros left-hander Reymin Guduan (1-0) was recalled for Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday and came in to pitch against the left-hand hitting Vogelbach, who sent a liner off the wall in center to clear the bases.

Andrew Moore, making his first major league appearance since September of 2017, gave up four runs and six hits in 4 2/3 innings as the Mariners starter. Brandon Brennan (2-4) allowed three runs in the sixth.

Wade Miley started for the Astros and gave up three runs in five-plus innings. The Astros have won seven of his last nine outings.

Jake Marisnick had two hits and two RBIs for Houston, and Tony Kemp and Robinson Chirinos each homered.

Mitch Haniger hit his 15th home run of the season for the Mariners.

Roster move

Astros: RHP Corbin Martin was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock. Martin, who made his major league debut May 12, was a 1-1 with a 5.59 ERA, including 10 earned runs over 14 innings in his last four starts. LHP Framber Valdez (2-2, 3.12) will replace Martin in the starting rotation and start Saturday against the Orioles.

Trainer’s room

Mariners: RHP Connor Sadzeck was placed on the 10-day IL (retroactive to June 3) with right elbow inflammation.

Up next

Astros: RHP Brad Peacock (5-2, 3.17) is 3-0 with a 0.93 ERA over his last five starts, including 35 strikeouts in 29 innings.

Mariners: RHP Mike Leake (4-6, 4.71) allowed two earned runs in seven innings while earning the victory against the Angels in his last start. Leake has given up 18 home runs this season, the second most in baseball.
