SEATTLE -- Mitch Haniger had three hits, including a double, and drove in four runs, Kyle Seager drove in four on two hits and a bases-loaded walk, and the Seattle Mariners took the rubber match of a three-game series with the Miami Marlins, 10-5 on Wednesday at Safeco Field.
The Seattle victory came despite an impressive showing by Miami outfielders Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton, who each hit long home runs off Mariners starter Felix Hernandez.
Hernandez (2-1) was far from his best, allowing five hits in the first inning, four before recording an out.
With the bases loaded, the first two outs of the game were recorded when Miami first baseman Justin Bour lifted a fly ball to Mariner left fielder Jarrod Dyson.
Dyson, who had 11 outfield assists in 2016, fired home on the fly to beat Martin Prado running from third by about 10 feet.
The first inning proved to be the toughest for Hernandez, who allowed only the two solo home runs. After that, he finished 6 1/3 innings by allowing 12 hits and four runs, while striking out five and walking one.
Miami starter Edinson Volquez (0-2) was not sharp from the first pitch, and Mariner hitters were able to capitalize early, scoring eight runs in the first four innings.
It was Volquez's first loss against Seattle, as he had previously been 5-0 in eight appearances, and seven starts against the Mariners.
Outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, who played for 11 seasons in Seattle to begin his major league career, brought the crowd to its feet in the ninth, in what may well be his final appearance in Seattle.
Suzuki hit the first pitch from Mariners reliever Evan Marshall over the fence in right field for his first home run to the season to a raucous ovation from the Seattle fans.
Seattle (7-9) finished its first homestand with a 6-3 record. The Mariners travel to Oakland for a four-game series against the Athletics beginning Thursday night.
Miami (8-7) will have a travel day off before beginning a weekend series against the Padres in San Diego.
