Recap: Seattle vs. Kansas City

Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Justin Smoak smacked a two-run homer, Dustin Ackley added a solo shot and the Seattle Mariners beat the Kansas City Royals, 3-1, in the third test of a four-game set.

Chris Young (3-0) spun eight innings of one-run ball, allowing just three hits for Seattle, which has won seven of its last nine games. Fernando Rodney fired a scoreless ninth for his 11th save of the season.

"I felt good," Young said. "The command was where it needed to be."

The 34-year old Young, who signed with Seattle after being released by the Nationals prior to the season, improved to 3-0 with a 2.63 ERA.

Yordano Ventura (2-2) surrendered three runs on six hits and four walks over 6 1/3 innings for the Royals, who had won three of their last four games coming in on the heels of a five-game slide.

The Royals opened the scoring in the third when Mike Moustakas smoked a one- out triple. Mariners right fielder Michael Saunders hurt himself on the play when he tried to slide near the grass down the right-field line as the ball bounced over his head.

Moustakas scored on Alcides Escobar's sacrifice fly into left, but the Mariners surged in front following a two-run fourth.

Corey Hart led off with a single and Smoak followed by blasting a fastball deep into the seats in right to give the M's a 2-1 edge.

Ackley deposited a hanging changeup over the wall in right-center in the sixth to increase the margin to 3-1.

"The pitch to Smoak wasn't a bad pitch, it was a fastball down and in," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "The pitch to Ackley was a changeup up."

Young set the Royals, who had just four hits after tallying 16 singles on Friday night, down in order in five of his eight frames. Kansas City never had a runner in scoring position and left three men on base.

Saunders left the game following the third and was diagnosed with a hyperextended left knee ... The four hits was a season low for Kansas City ... Seattle was 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position.
