Robinson Cano forgot how many outs there were on a double play ball in the top of the seventh but then hit a grand slam in the bottom of the inning, a nine-pitch battle against Michael Feliz. Cano fouled off five fastballs but then hit the seventh one in a row he saw out to right-center.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Great heads-up play by Ketel Marte of the Mariners. Robinson Cano's base hit off Dallas Keuchel plated two runs for a 4-0 lead and sent Marte to third. Cano rounded first too far, drawing a throw and a rundown, but as soon as Tyler White turned his back, Marte dashed home with another run. The Astros' woes continue.
