Recap: Atlanta vs. Seattle

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Hisashi Iwakuma tossed seven shutout innings to lead the Seattle Mariners past the Atlanta Braves, 2-0, on a pristine Wednesday afternoon at Turner Field.

Iwakuma (4-2) limited the Braves to six singles, did not walk a batter and struck out seven to bounce back from losses in his previous two outings.

Kyle Seager and Cole Gillespie each drove in a run as the Mariners tied a season high with their fifth straight win.

"Everyone is doing their job," Gillespie said. "I think everyone, when their name is called upon, are trying to do their best."

Mike Minor (2-4) struck out 10 but was saddled with the hard-luck loss after giving up one run on five hits over seven innings.

Atlanta dropped both games in this brief series and fell to 0-6 in interleague games this year.

"No matter who we play, we kind of expect to win at home and take a two-game set, but they took it to us," Braves third baseman Chris Johnson said.

The Mariners broke a scoreless tie in the fourth inning when Gillespie singled through the left side with two away to knock in Robinson Cano, who led off the frame with a base hit.

Seattle squandered several scoring chances before finally adding on against Atlanta's bullpen in the eighth. Luis Avilan relieved Minor to start the frame, and Stefen Romero rolled one into the right-field gap and legged out a one-out triple. Seager followed with an RBI single.

Iwakuma provided Seattle's relievers with some much-deserved rest after they tossed six shutout innings in Tuesday's win.

He retired 12 straight at one point and quickly erased Evan Gattis' leadoff single in the seventh by getting Johnson to bounce into a double play.

Yoervis Medina tossed a 1-2-3 eighth behind Iwakuma, and Fernando Rodney did the same in the ninth to post his 16th save.

Game Notes

The Braves have dropped four straight at home ... Jason Heyward had two of Atlanta's six hits ... The Mariners went 2-for-11 with runners in scoring position and left 10 on base ... Atlanta will travel to Seattle for two games August 5-6.
