The Rockies lost to the Mariners 7-to-2 on Saturday night.

The Mariners pecked away at Yohan Flande over 3 2/3 innings. Robinson Cano hit a solo home run off of Flande in the second inning, Kyle Seager doubled in a run in the third, and in the fourth inning Jesus Montero hit a home run and John Hicks scored on a sacrifice bunt. In all, Flande allowed four runs on six hits; he walked two and struck out three.

David Hale relieved Flande, and in the fifth inning he allowed a solo home run to Franklin Guitierrez to make it a 5-to-0 game in favor of the Mariners.

The Rockies responded in the sixth inning. Tom Murphy reached on an error to lead off the inning, and he eventually scored on a DJ LeMahieu fielder's choice. LeMahieu then scored on a Nolan Arenado sacrifice fly to make it a 5-to-2 game.

Hale struck out the side in the bottom of the sixth, but in the bottom of the seventh Nelson Cruz tagged Hale for hist 41st dinger of the season. It was a two run shot and made the game 7-to-2. That's how it ended.
