lomo 090115HOUSTON (AP) - Logan Morrison's tiebreaking two-run pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning lifted the Seattle Mariners to a 7-5 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.

The game was tied 5-5 when Morrison hit the third pinch-hit homer of his career, sending a pitch from Pat Neshek (3-4) into the seats in right field.

Franklin Gutierrez hit a solo homer in the second and Mark Trumbo, who homered twice on Monday, added a two-run shot off the train beyond Houston's left-center field wall to give Seattle a 5-3 lead in the fifth.

Jose Altuve hit an RBI single with two outs in the sixth to get Houston within 1. The Astros tied it up when Jake Marisnick scored from third on an error by catcher John Hicks when he tried to pick off Altuve at second base.

Logan Kensing (1-0) pitched a scoreless seventh for the win and Tom Wilhelmsen threw a perfect ninth for his seventh save.

Seahawks-Panthers Trade

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Panthers have acquired wide receiver Kevin Norwood in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for an undisclosed 2017 draft choice.

Carolina has been searching for answers at wide receiver ever since Kelvin Benjamin went down with a season-ending injury.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Norwood was a fourth-round draft choice by the Seahawks in 2014. He played nine games with two starts as a rookie, catching nine passes for 102 yards.

Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said in a press release Monday that Norwood "has the size you look for along with toughness and smarts."

Gettleman said the Panthers had studied Norwood leading up to last year's draft.
