Mariners bats come alive in win over Rays

SEATTLE (AP) — Felix Hernandez got plenty of run support and the Seattle Mariners topped the Tampa Bay Rays 12-5 Monday night after hitting two early drives off the top of the wall, requiring video reviews on consecutive batters.

James Jones doubled, singled and scored in each of the first three innings as the Mariners took a 9-0 lead. Robinson Cano drove in two runs and Hernandez (4-1) cruised to the win.

The rare back-to-back replays came in the first inning as Cano and then Corey Hart both barely missed home runs on flys that hit the yellow line atop the fence and bounced back. Umpires ruled both balls in play, and their calls were confirmed.

Cano wound up with a double on his drive to left field, Hart was thrown out trying for a double on his shot to right.
