Mariners 8 Blue Jays 1
Dustin Ackley hit his first career grand slam and Michael Saunders added a pair of solo homers as visiting Seattle extended Toronto's early-season misery.

Saunders led off the game with a homer from the second pitch of the contest and added some insurance in the fifth as Seattle won for the seventh time in nine games.

Jack Hannahan's bases-loaded walk forced home the go-ahead run amidst a four-run eighth inning as visiting Cincinnati rallied to beat Chicago for the second straight day.
Alfonso Soriano blasted two-run homers to left in the first and third against rookie Tony Cingrani to give the Cubs a 4-2 lead, but the bullpen could not hold it.

A day after nearly allowing Chicago to rally from a four-run deficit in the ninth, the Reds' bullpen was dominant this time, as Logan Ondrusek and Jonathan Broxton each pitched perfect innings before Aroldis Chapman worked around a one-out walk in the ninth for his seventh save.
