Seattle Mariners starter Doug Jones turned in an exceptional performance against the Houston Astros at Safeco Field, resulting in a Seattle win, 4-2. Joe Payne earned his 1st save in 3 chances. The losing streak for Houston has now reached 4 games.

The game was on the line with two out in the top of the eighth inning, but Justin Steele didn't flinch. With runners on 1st and 2nd and Houston trailing 4-2, Steele retired Don Sparks to end the threat. "Nothing to it," said Steele, with a wink.
