Seattle starter George Kirby (6-7) yielded three runs -- two earned -- on six hits with four strikeouts and a walk in 6 1/3 innings before being relieved by Matt Brash.

Cal Raleigh went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and two RBIs for the Mariners, who have dropped four of their past six games

After the Mariners took a 2-0 lead in the second on Raleigh's two-run homer to right, the Orioles tied the game in the third

After Jorge Mateo led off with a double down the third-base line, he stole third with one out before Cedric Mullins flew out to center. But five pitches later, Santander blasted Kirby's curveball over the right-field wall to tie the game.

The Orioles took the lead in the fifth. After Mateo drew a one-out walk, Bemboom hit a short fly ball that landed just inside the right-field line and just out of the reach of second baseman Jose Caballero

Caballero inadvertently kicked the ball while trying to pick it up, enabling Mateo to score all the way from first and enabling Bemboom to reach second base.
