M’s fall to Cubs on late Schwarber home run

Seattle rallies to take the lead, but gives it right back in a 6-5 loss to Chicago at home.

Associated Press

SEATTLE — Kyle Schwarber hit a two-run homer with two out in the eighth, and the Chicago Cubs topped the Seattle Mariners 6-5 on Tuesday night for their third consecutive victory.

Schwarber’s long ball was the last of three homers for Chicago, and easily the most important.

Brandon Brennan (1-2) struck out Javier Báez to end the seventh inning and got the first two outs of the eighth before Willson Contreras doubled. Schwarber then drove Brennan’s changeup into the second deck in right field for his first homer since April 8.

Brad Brach (3-0) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win and Steve Cishek got four outs for his first save of the season.

Seattle put its first two batters on in the ninth, but Tim Beckham bounced into a double play and Cishek struck out Jay Bruce to end the game. Cishek pumped his arm emphatically Bruce looked at a called third strike with Domingo Santana on third.
