Robinson Cano for the second out of the eighth inning Monday night http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-ozzie-smith-jersey , Seattle manager Scott Servais started to think it just might not be his team’s night.Turns out he just had to wait a little bit longer.Rookie pinch-hitter Daniel Vogelbach hit his first career grand slam two batters later, lifting the Mariners over the Houston Astros 4-1 on Monday night.The Mariners trailed 1-0 when Nelson Cruz singled off Hector Rondon (2-5) with no outs in the eighth, and Kyle Seager singled with one out. Cano then hit a ball into shallow center field that looked like it would drop, but Marisnick, who also made a nice grab for the inning’s first out, sprinted before diving and extending his arm to make the catch.Rondon walked pinch-hitter Denard Span to load bases before Vogelbach sent a 97-mph fastball into the bullpen in right-center.“Obviously a great at-bat by him and really coming through in a big moment,” Servais said. “It seems like we had to figure out a way to get the ball away from Marisnick. … We figured out a way to hit one where he couldn’t catch it.”It was the third pinch-hit grand slam in Mariners’ history and the first since Franklin Gutierrez hit one on July 21, 2015 at Detroit.“I think I’ve learned my lesson pinch-hitting and failing multiple times with trying to be really patient and trying to go up there and work an at-bat like I was starting Albert Pujols Jersey ,” Vogelbach said. “So just going up there and trying to get something elevated and hard and put a good swing on it and see what happens.”The loss cut Houston’s lead in the AL West to four games over Oakland, which was off Monday night.Marwin Gonzalez had an RBI double to give the Astros the lead in the fourth. But they couldn’t muster much else on a night they managed just three hits, with the last one coming in the fifth.Mariners starter Wade LeBlanc allowed three hits and one run in 5 1/3 innings. Ryan Cook (2-1) struck out one in a perfect seventh for the win, and Edwin Diaz pitched a scoreless ninth for his MLB-leading 56th save.“We had a rough night offensively,” manager A.J. Hinch said. “It didn’t look like we were picking the ball up very well. Leblanc always does this cat-and-mouse game of moving the ball around. We’ve had pretty good success against him, but for whatever reason, we weren’t taking great swings against him.”Houston’s Framber Valdez walked five but gave up just two hits in five innings. Rondon allowed four hits and four runs for his second straight loss after giving up three hits and two runs in 1 1/3 innings of a loss to Arizona on Friday night.LeBlanc walked a batter in both the first and second innings but didn’t allow a hit until Yuli Gurriel doubled with two outs in the fourth. Gonzalez followed with his double, which bounced off the wall in left center http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-stan-musial-jersey , to score Gurriel and make it 1-0.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: LHP James Paxton rejoined the team Monday after resting at home for a few days after being diagnosed with pneumonia. He said he had a fever of as high as 104 degrees and it was the sickest he could ever remember being. He’s feeling much better now but is still a little week and lacking energy. He’ll try to throw a bullpen session either Tuesday or Wednesday but isn’t sure when he’ll feel good enough to rejoin the rotation.Astros: OF Josh Reddick was replaced by Marisnick in the bottom of the fifth inning because of discomfort in his right ankle.THEY SAID ITMarisnick and his mentality in center field: “Anytime I’m out there, I’m trying to take away as many hits and runs from the other team as I can. Our pitchers have carried us through big spots all year and as a defense, we take pride in helping them out when we can.”UP NEXTThe Astros will push back Gerrit Cole’s scheduled start until Friday and start rookie Josh James (0-0, 4.22 ERA) in the second game of the series on Tuesday night. Hinch said they wanted to give Cole a little extra rest before his next start as his innings have started to pile up. The flame-throwing James has made two appearances out of the bullpen since making his major league debut in a start on Sept. 1. Mike Leake (10-9, 3.99) will pitch for Seattle. The Los Angeles Angels might be out of the running for a playoff spot, but they can certainly factor in the American League West race.The Angels open a three-game series against the AL West-leading Houston Astros on Friday night at Angel Stadium, the first of 10 games against the reigning World Series champions over the next month.The Astros (77-50) entered Thursday with a one-game lead over the Oakland A’s and a 5 1/2-game edge on the Seattle Mariners.Article continues below ...The Angels (63-65) have six games remaining against Oakland and four against Seattle, which is chasing the A’s for the final AL wild-card spot.Houston will send left-hander Dallas Keuchel to the mound in the series opener. Keuchel is 11-2 in his career against the Angels with a 3.41 ERA. He’s 25-23 against the rest of the AL West.He won his only start against the Angels this season Roger Maris Jersey , taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning on July 20 in Anaheim before allowing one unearned run and two hits over 7 2/3 innings of the 3-1 win.He has won his past five decisions against Los Angeles overall with his last loss coming on Sept. 11, 2015 at Angel Stadium.Keuchel (9-10, 3.59 ERA) hasn’t been able to get his record over .500 this season, however.He had three chances after moving to 9-9 in an 8-3 win against the Mariners on Aug. 1, but had no decisions in his next two starts and then took the loss in a 7-1 defeat against the A’s on Saturday.Keuchel gave up five runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings. Six of those hits were doubles.“They got in that momentum with really good at-bats and double after double after double,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch told MLB.com afterward. “He didn’t need to make perfect pitches, but he didn’t get the ball on the ground today the way he normally does.”The series will mark the return of Houston catcher Martin Maldonado to Anaheim. He was acquired from the Angels in a trade on July 26.Maldonado has three home runs in 16 games with the Astros after hitting five in 78 games with the Angels.Reports have also surfaced that Los Angeles outfielder Mike Trout could return Friday. Trout was on the 10-day disabled list with a sore right wrist when his brother-in-law, Aaron Cox http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-matt-carpenter-jersey , died on Aug. 15.Angels left-hander Andrew Heaney is also looking to get over .500 for the first time this season. He’s had six chances, but is 0-3 with three no-decisions in those games.Most recently he missed an opportunity against the Texas Rangers, allowing six runs and 10 hits on Saturday and leaving after 5 2/3 innings with the score tied 6-6. The Angels went on to win 11-7.Heaney (7-7, 4.11 ERA) beat the Astros in his two starts this season, both times to get his record back to .500. Those are his only two decisions in four career starts against the Astros.Heaney will try to lift his teammates, who have dropped five of their past six games. In addition to being without Trout, left fielder Justin Upton has missed the past two games with a cut on his right index finger, forcing Angels manager Mike Scioscia to go with a younger Tim McCarver Jersey , more inexperienced lineup.“We have some guys who are figuring it out as they play every day,” Scioscia told the Orange County Register following a 5-1 loss at the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday. “These guys need to play to figure stuff out.”
