CHICAGO (AP) — Everything went right for Seattle for much of Sunday night. Nelson Cruz, Robinson Cano and Dae-Ho Lee homered, and Felix Hernandez helped the Mariners get into position for a big win against the Chicago Cubs.
Then everything unraveled in a hurry.
Steve Cishek allowed three runs in the ninth and Seattle lost 7-6 when Chicago pitcher Jon Lester drove in Jason Heyward with a two-strike squeeze bunt in the 12th inning.
“I think for our club, coming in here, they’ve got the best record in baseball. And quite frankly, we should have got two out of three,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “It didn’t happen. You’ve got to finish.”
