Atlanta led 3-1 before Jose Caballero hit his first major league homer, an eighth-inning liner to left field off Nick Anderson.

Cuban Raisel Iglesias pitched a perfect ninth inning, with two strikeouts, to reach three saves in four chances.

Travis d’Arnaud had two hits, including his first home run of the season, for Atlanta.

Seattle right-hander George Kirby (5-3) gave up three runs in seven innings as the Mariners closed out a 4-5 road trip.

For Mariners, Panamanian José Caballero 1-1 with a run scored and one produced. The Dominican Teoscar Hernández 3-1.

For Braves, Puerto Rican Eddie Rosario 3-1 with an RBI. Venezuelan Orlando Arcia, Ronald Acuña Jr. 1-4 with a run scored. The Dominican Marcell Ozuna of 3-1.
