SEATTLE (AP) — George Kirby matched his career high with 10 strikeouts over seven innings, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Minnesota Twins 5-0 on Thursday. Teoscar Hernández and Mike Ford homered as Seattle earned a split of the four-game set, but the afternoon belonged to Seattle’s All-Star pitcher. Kirby retired 11 of his first 12 batters and didn’t allow a hit until Matt Wallner dribbled a single just inside the bag at third base with two outs in the fourth. Kirby (9-8) allowed four hits, and the 10 strikeouts matched his outing against Miami last month. Pablo López went to a full count on four of his first seven batters and needed 36 pitches to get through the frame. López (5-6) settled down after the rocky beginning, but Hernández got the better of him again when he led off the fourth with his 16th homer. López allowed six hits and struck out seven, but the high pitch count early on had the Twins going to their bullpen by the sixth.
RHP Joe Ryan (8-6, 3.77 ERA) gets the start as Minnesota begins a series at home against the Chicago White Sox and Lance Lynn (6-8, 6.06 ERA) tonight. Ryan threw 5 1/3 innings and got a no-decision in his last start against Oakland.
