SEATTLE -- Dustin Ackley drifted back to find the wall, jumped and wondered. Only when the Seattle Mariners left fielder tumbled to the ground did Ackley know hed robbed Travis dArnaud of a home run. "I knew I felt something. I didnt know if I felt it hit off my glove or go in the web, but when I came down is when I knew I had it," Ackley said. "I was like, Well something is in there." Ackley had three hits to go along with his outstanding catch, Kyle Seager drove in two runs and Mike Zunino homered into the second deck in the Mariners 5-2 win over the New York Mets on Monday night. After losing two of three to the Angels after the All-Star break, Seattle got a solid start from Roenis Elias and improved to 8-2 all-time against the Mets. Elias (8-8) threw 5 1-3 innings before leaving with cramping in his left forearm. Seattles bullpen was stellar the rest of the way, helped by Ackleys grab to steal a home run from dArnaud in the sixth. "How about that catch?" Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said. "I think it really goes back to the work he put in in spring training ... and he really, really worked hard to improve his outfield play, and he continues to work hard." Seager had RBI singles in his first two at-bats and Zunino hit his 14th homer of the season, an estimated 415-foot shot off starter Jonathon Niese (5-5) into the second deck in left field. Ackley added an RBI double in the eighth. "Ive felt pretty good and the results are there, too," Ackley said. "That helps build the confidence." Elias took advantage of a long break between starts -- he hadnt pitched since July 9. He looked rested and his improved command led to eight strikeouts and two walks. Elias had retired five of six batters when he looked down at his hand after throwing a pitch to Lucas Duda leading off the sixth. Elias was immediately visited by trainers and McClendon. The left-hander threw a couple of warmup pitches and stayed in, striking out Duda on a 2-2 pitch. That was enough for McClendon, who immediately signalled to the bullpen. Elias walked off to a nice ovation, but with a trainer at his side and continuing to try to stretch his hand. Seattle announced Elias left with cramping in his left forearm and McClendon said there was no worry as of now about it being a lingering problem. "I didnt want to take a chance," McClendon said. "He was outstanding." Dominic Leone took over and was immediately greeted by a deep drive from dArnaud. Ackley found the left-field fence, got just enough elevation to get his glove over the wall and made the catch in the webbing of his glove. Niese came off the disabled list before the game. He hadnt pitched since leaving in the first inning July 4 against Texas when he was struck in the back by Alex Rios line drive. The left-hander was placed on the DL two days later with a left shoulder strain. Nieses streak of 21 straight starts giving up three earned runs or less was snapped when Willie Bloomquist collected his third hit, an RBI double in the fourth inning for a 4-1 Seattle lead. David Wright had an RBI single on the 10th anniversary of his debut in the majors, but the Mets only other run came on second baseman Robinson Canos error in the ninth that allowed Juan Lagares to score. New York lost its third straight after winning eight of nine. "You look at every game since the All-Star break and weve been outhomered," manager Terry Collins said. "That was what was getting us going, and youre not going to ask guys to start swinging for the fences, but it helps out when we hit the ball out of the ballpark." NOTES: Seattle optioned 1B Justin Smoak to Triple-A Tacoma after the game to clear a roster spot for RHP Erasmo Ramirez to start Tuesday. ... Wrights debut came on July 21, 2004, at Shea Stadium against Montreal. He went 0 for 4 while batting seventh in a 5-4 Mets win. Wright said the memories of being at Triple-A Norfolk the night before, getting notified of his call-up and arriving at the stadium remain vivid. His teammates treated Wright to dinner on Sunday night when they arrived in Seattle. Wright said the dinner became more of a roast. ...

Watch the game live on TSN2 and TSN Mobile TV, tonight at 10pm et/7pm pt. The Dodgers magic number to clinch their first NL West title since 2009 is two and they got off the schneid with Tuesdays 9-3 win over the Dbacks. Juan Uribe hit a two-run homer during a four-run first inning and Adrian Gonzalez belted a two-run shot in the third inning. Los Angeles had an 8-0 lead by the fourth inning and welcome outfielder Matt Kemp back to the starting lineup. Kemp had a big night at the plate, going 4- for-4 with three RBI, two doubles and a run scored. "It feels good, it feels good just to be with the team and to be able to go out there and run out with them and compete with them, do all that," said Kemp, who was activated from the disabled list on Monday after missing nearly two months with a sprained left ankle. "I miss baseball man, I havent been able to play in a while so it feel good." Zack Greinke was on point once again in the start for L.A. and delivered six innings of two-run ball, five strikeouts and one walk. Four relievers combined to allow one run the rest of the way and the Dodgers halted a four-game slide to win for just the fourth time in the past 13 tries. Los Angeles is 1-1 on its 10-game road trip and will send Stephen Fife to the mound Wednesday night. Fife is taking the place of ace Clayton Kershaw, who will get extra rest and has tossed a Major League-leading 223 innings. "They want me to be well-rested if I pitch deep (into October)," Kershaw said on the clubs website. ";I dont think I need it, but Im not going to argue about it.dddddddddddd" Fife, meanwhile, has a 4-3 record and a 3.38 ERA in 11 games, nine of which have been starts, this season and the Dodgers have lost three of his last four trips to the mound. In a 19-3 loss to San Francisco on Saturday, Fife was reached for five runs and six hits in three innings. The right-hander faced the Dbacks for the first time in his career in a 4-0 loss last Aug. 1 and gave up two runs and six hits in 4 1/3 innings. Arizona hopes to postpone L.A.s title plans and had won three in a row and four of five games until Tuesdays lopsided loss. Dbacks All-Star Patrick Corbin was roughed up in two innings of work, as he permitted six runs and seven hits, including two home runs. "They got a couple of hits early and I was leaving some breaking balls up," said Corbin. "I just couldnt find my spots early and they were able to get some hits." Aaron Hill hit a solo home run and Paul Goldschmidt continued his recent tear with two hits and a run scored in defeat. Goldschmidt is batting .556 with 15 hits, nine RBI and two homers during a seven-game hitting streak. The Diamondbacks, who are nine games off a wild card berth, will turn to Brandon McCarthy in the third installment of this series with the Dodgers and he is just 4-9 with a 4.58 ERA in 19 starts this season. McCarthy is also just 2-6 in his past eight decisions and did not factor in the outcome of a 7-5 loss to Colorado on Friday, when he allowed two runs across six innings. McCarthy has a 2-4 record in 10 home starts and is 1-0 with a 2.03 ERA in two career starts against the Dodgers. Arizona leads the season series with Los Angeles by a 9-8 margin, but the Dodgers have won six of the previous eight encounters. ' ' '
