HOUSTON (AP) — When Seattle reliever Alex Colome saw Houston’s Tony Kemp knock his pitch into center field with one on in the eighth inning Clayton Richard Jersey , he was certain it would be an extra-base hit.Guillermo Heredia made sure that wasn’t the case.Heredia made a spectacular case to preserve Seattle’s lead, Ryon Healy had three hits and drove in the go-ahead run, and the Mariners beat the Astros 3-2 on Saturday night.It was yet another win in a close game by the Mariners, who have taken three straight from their AL West rivals and improved to 44-17 this season in games decided by one or two runs.Seattle trailed 2-0 before scoring all of its runs with a two-out rally in the fourth. Nelson Cruz singled and scored on a double by Kyle Seager that sailed over Kemp’s head in center field. Chris Hermann tripled to right field to tie it.Healy put the Mariners on top with a single but was out at second trying to stretch it into a double.With no outs and a runner at first in the eighth, Kemp hit a ball to center field that looked sure to drop in for a hit. Heredia raced to track it down and grabbed it as he fell to the ground. He popped up and threw to first to complete the double play.“What a catch,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “Everybody knows G is an awesome defender and never takes pitches off, but that play, that was the game.”Even Heredia didn’t think he would be able to get to it off the bat.“I charged the ball to catch it, but I didn’t think I had a chance,” he said. “At the end I said: ‘Oh yeah, I got it.'”An incredulous Kemp put both hands on his head as he slowly trotted back to the dugout.“They put Heredia in for defense almost every night he doesn’t play, so that tells you enough what they think about his defensive ability http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-manuel-margot-jersey ,” Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. “He got a pretty decent break on it. It was a sizeable gap … and then the ball hangs up just enough that he makes a great circus catch. I still wasn’t sure that he caught it until he came up ready to throw pretty excited.”Colome said the catch, which helped him extend his streak of scoreless innings to 18 2/3, was the best he’s seen while on the mound.Wade LeBlanc (7-2) allowed three hits and two runs in five innings. Four relievers allowed a combined two hits in three innings before Edwin Diaz struck out two in a perfect ninth for his MLB-leading 45th save in 48 opportunities.Charlie Morton (12-3) yielded seven hits and three runs in six innings for his first loss since July 1.The Astros took an early lead on a two-run single by Tyler White in the second. Houston didn’t have another baserunner until White walked to open the fifth. But LeBlanc got three routine outs to end the inning and his night.Seattle had a chance to add to the lead in the sixth when Span singled to start the inning and Cruz singled with one out. But Seager grounded into a double play.ALWAYS BE CLOSINGDiaz got his third save in as many games and his 45 saves are tied for second-most in a season in franchise history. Fernando Rodney ranks first with 48 in 2014.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: RHP Erasmo Ramirez, who hasn’t pitched since April 27 because of a shoulder injury, will come off the disabled list to start on Sunday.Astros: OF Jake Marisnick was placed on the 10-day disabled list with groin discomfort after he was injured running the bases on Friday night. OF Kyle Tucker was recalled from Triple-A Fresno to take his spot on the roster.UP NEXTHouston left-hander Dallas Keuchel (9-9, 3.53 ERA) opposes Ramirez (0-2, 10.24) when the series concludes on Sunday. Keuchel has won six of his last seven decisions and allowed just three hits and one run in his last start but did not factor in the decision in a 2-1 win over the Giants. Ramirez is taking Felix Hernandez’s spot in the rotation after the longtime Mariners ace, who has struggled all season, was demoted to the bullpen on Thursday night. LAS VEGAS (AP) — Tanner Roark figured he would be pitching in Washington’s star-studded rotation next year alongside Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg and newcomer Patrick Corbin.Instead, he found himself part of the majors’ first Tanner-for-Tanner trade, headed to the rebuilding Reds. Cincinnati acquired him for fellow right-hander Tanner Rainey on Wednesday during the winter meetings.“I felt like we would have a pretty good staff over there in D.C. but they thought otherwise and I don’t know what their plans are Hunter Renfroe Jersey ,” Roark said in a conference call. “I’m just grateful to be a National. It was good times over there.”As of now, Roark could lead a young Reds rotation — though president of baseball operations Dick Williams made it clear his last-place club is hardly done dealing. Righty starter Matt Harvey came to Cincinnati from the Mets last May.There have been only a handful of big league players over the years with the first name of Tanner, and this was the first time two of them were traded for each other.The 32-year-old Roark led the National League in losses last season, going 9-15 with a 4.34 ERA. He is 64-54 in six years, all with Washington.Roark made $6,475,000 last year and is eligible for arbitration. He can become a free agent after next season.“There haven’t been a lot of commitments to players making this kind of money. So this is a significant shift for us,” Williams said. “We’ve been laying in the weeds for a couple of years and focused on rebuilding, and now it’s time to add to the team. We’re in that mode now. And we fully expect to make more deals. This is the first of more to come.”Washington boosted its rotation last week by signing All-Star Corbin to a $140 million, six-year contract. He will join the company of Scherzer and Strasburg on a team that 82-80 and finished second in the NL East behind Atlanta.After flip-flopping between the bullpen and rotation early in his career, Roark has been a back-of-the-rotation arm for the Nationals recently, with moderate success.The truest assessment of the team’s faith in the righty Freddy Galvis Jersey , though, might very well have come during the NL Division Series elimination against the Chicago Cubs in 2017, when he wasn’t used at all.He made clear later that it bothered him not to get a chance to start in that series.“Life’s too short to hold grudges,” Roark said shortly after the trade. “But that’s what they wanted to do. If they can live with it, then they live with it, you know? They treated me great. But there were times to where I would be very frustrated and I’d get (mad). But that made me stronger mentally and how to handle certain things like that. So it helped me.”This might signal another move involving a starter is coming for Washington, which possesses a tremendously strong front three with three-time Cy Young Award winner Scherzer and All-Stars Strasburg and Corbin — but some real question marks after that in Erick Fedde and Joe Ross.Rainey, who turns 26 on Christmas Day, made his big league debut last season. He didn’t have a decision and posted a 24.43 ERA in eight relief outings for the Reds.Rainey spent most of the season at Triple-A Louisville, going 7-2 with a 2.65 ERA and three saves in 44 appearances.
