Mariners Down Astros


The Mariners chased Justin Verlander early as they downed the Astros 8-6 in Houston.  Mitch Haniger, Denard Span and Jean Segura each  launched homers off Verlander, who allowed six runs before getting  ejected for arguing.  James Paxton improved to 4-and-0 against Houston  this season.  Edwin Diaz notched his 43rd save as Seattle snapped a  two-game skid.  Tyler White homered in the ninth for Houston.  Verlander  failed in his bid for his 200th career win.  Houston had won six of its  previous seven games.
