The Seattle Mariners built a 4-1 lead, then hung on for a 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays last night, in front of 27,856 fans at Tropicana Field.

Seattle scored all their runs via the ling ball. Franklin Gutierrez belted a two-run homer in the first, Adam Moore a solo shot in the fifth and Mike Sweeney another solo shot in the eighth. The Rays scored once in the third, then got a two-run homer from Evan Longoria in the eighth, but Ben Zobrist struck out with two runners in scoring position in the ninth to end the game, as the Mariners held on for the 4-3 win.

Doug Fister picked up the win for Seattle, he's now 3-1. David Aardsma picked up his 9th save. Wade Davis took the loss, he's now 3-3. Tampa Bay falls to 24-11, still one game ahead of the Yankees in the A.L. East. Seattle improved to 14-21, 5 1/2 games behind Texas in the A.L. West.
