Former Oregon Duck hits go-ahead three-run homer as Seattle salvages finale of three-game interleague series with Colorado

HEALYFormer Oregon Duck Ryon Healy was a hero Sunday for the Seattle Mariners.

He hit a go-ahead three-run homer off Colorado starter Antonio Senzatela in the sixth inning and drove in five runs as Seattle beat the Rockies 6-4 at Safeco Field to salvage the final game of a three-game interleague series.

Healy's two-run double had given Seattle a 3-1 first-inning lead, after Charlie Blackmon hit a solo homer for Colorado.

Then, Carlos Gonzalez hit a solo shot in the fifth inning and Trevor Story a two-run homer in the sixth and Colorado led 4-3.

Nelson Cruz walked and Kyle Seager singled before Healy went deep.

Wade LeBlanc (5-0) got the win despite giving up three homers; he gave up five hits in six innings. Alex Colome struck out the side in the eighth inning and closer Edwin Diaz did the same in the ninth for his major league-leading 35th save.

The Rockies are 46-44, and the Mariners are 57-34 as they head out on a road trip to the Los Angeles Angels and Colorado before a break for the All-Star Game.

After an off day, Mike Leake (8-5) pitches opposite L.A.'s Garrett Richards (5-4) at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the opener of the series.
