SAN FRANCISCO — Pinch-hitter Darin Ruf homered with one out in the seventh inning and the San Francisco Giants beat Seattle 6-5 on Tuesday night, ending the Mariners’ six-game winning streak.

Alex Dickerson and Mauricio Dubón also went deep for the Giants, who erased a 5-1 deficit to win for the seventh time in nine games.

First-year San Francisco manager Gabe Kapler had to use five pitchers to keep his club on a roll and got another big night from the offense.

Donovan Solano had three hits and scored twice. Brandon Belt singled twice and had two RBIs. The Giants have scored four or more runs in 10 consecutive games for the first time since 2007.

J.P. Crawford drove in three for the Mariners.

Seattle manager Scott Servais was ejected in the eighth inning by home plate umpire John Libka for arguing balls and strikes.

Ruf’s blast off lefty reliever Anthony Misiewicz (0–2) was his third of the season and the fourth of his career as a pinch-hitter. Ruf, in his first year back in the majors after playing three seasons in Korea, was called on to hit for Dickerson, who homered off right-hander Brady Lail in the third.

Dubón also homered off Lail.

Tyler Rogers (2-3) retired three batters to win. Tony Watson pitched the ninth for his second save.

Giants starter Logan Webb allowed five runs and six hits in five innings.

Mariners starter Ljay Newsome was knocked out of the game after getting hit in the pitching hand by a 100 mph line drive from Brandon Crawford leading off the second. The ball ricocheted off Newsome’s hand high into the air and was caught by Crawford at shortstop for an out. Newsome grimaced and repeatedly tried to flex his hand before Servais and a team trainer came out.
