Justus Sheffield pitched six shutout innings for his first major league win, Dylan Moore hit a two-run homer and the Seattle Mariners beat the Colorado Rockies 5-3 on Sunday. Sheffield (1-2), one of three pitchers 24 or younger in the Mariners' starting rotation, gave up four hits without a walk and struck out seven in his longest stint of the season. ''That was my main thing: Get to two strikes as quick as possible and put them away,'' Sheffield said.
Christian Yelich and Milwaukee's slumping hitters finally busted out, enabling the Brewers to earn their first home victory of the year. Yelich homered, tripled and drew a bases-loaded walk as the Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-3 on Sunday to avoid their first 0-5 home start since 1970, the franchise's inaugural season in Milwaukee. ''I think every time we've played here, we've heard the same song every night: 'Everything's Gonna Be Alright,''' said Milwaukee first baseman Justin Smoak, referring to the Bob Marley tune that is actually titled ''Three Little Birds'' and plays at Miller Park after Brewers losses.
