Seattle Mariners defeat to the Marlins 6-4 despite home runs from Nick Gordon and Jesús Sánchez.

Nick Gordon and Jesús Sánchez homered and the Miami Marlins beat the Seattle Mariners 6-4 on Sunday.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. had two hits and an RBI for the Marlins, who clinched the three-game series against the AL West-leading Mariners.

Starting the fifth inning, A.J. Puk (1-8) relieved Marlins starter Kyle Tyler and tossed two flawless innings. Throughout the first four innings, Tyler gave up three hits and two runs.

Ryan Bliss’ RBI groundout off Huascar Brazoban and J.P. Crawford’s run-scoring single against Andrew Nardi in the eighth inning brought the Mariners within 6-4.

Mitch Garver was given a leadoff single by Marlins closer Tanner Scott, who then walked Cal Raleigh in the ninth inning. Dylan Moore doubled to right to load the bases after Crawford struck out and Bliss flew out to medium center. Otto Lopez, the second baseman for Miami, made a leaping catch on Julio Rodriguez’s line drive to record the game’s last out and Scott’s eleventh save.

The 27-year-old Tyler, who was chosen from Triple-A Jacksonville to make his major league debut, replaced Sunday’s planned starting Braxton Garrett on the disabled list because to a strain in his left forearm flexor. Tyler was called up sooner and made one appearance in relief for Miami on April 26.

Gordon’s three-run homer against Mariners starter Bryce Miller capped a four-run first. Jake Burger put Miami on the board with an RBI single.

Chisholm’s run-scoring single in the second made it 5-0.

Sánchez connected off Miller (6-6) with a solo blast in the third. Sánchez’s 429-foot drive landed in the seats in right-center field for his seventh homer.

Luke Raley’s eighth home run, a two-run drive in the fourth, cut the lead for Seattle.

In four innings, Miller struck out three while giving up six runs and six hits.

Marlins: RHP Edward Cabrera (right shoulder impingement) and LHP Jesús Luzardo (lumbar stress reaction) were placed on the 60-day disabled list. Shaun Anderson, the right-hander who began the game on Saturday, was optioned to Jacksonville.

UP NEXT Mariners: Monday’s first pitch of a three-game series against Tampa Bay will be given by RHP Bryan Woo (3-1, 1.67). A starter has not been declared by the Rays.

Marlins: Monday’s first game of a three-game series between Miami and Kansas City will feature RHP Roddery Muñoz (2-2, 5.76). For the Royals, LHP Cole Ragans (4-5, 3.13) will get the start.
