Marineros, hitless against Montás until the eighth, come back and beat Atléticos

The Seattle Mariners broke up the no-hitter off starter Frankie Montas in the eighth inning and wound up beating the Oakland Athletics 2-1 on Thursday.

After Montas’ bid for a hitless game was botched, reliever AJ Puk gave up a pair of runs on wild pitches with two outs in the ninth inning.

The Mariners loaded the bases with three walks and turned the scoreboard on Puk’s wild pitches to complete the three-game series sweep.

Seattle won with two hits, both in the eighth.

Before that strange ninth episode, it seemed that the 29-year-old Montas would grab the headlines. He didn’t give up uncatchable until Adam Frazier singled to left field with two outs in the eighth inning.

Montas accepted another undisputed and was withdrawn after the conclusion of the inning.

He prescribed eight strikeouts in eight innings, his longest work of the season. He walked away with a 1-0 lead, but has received one or zero support runs in 11 of his 15 starts.

He is expected to be one of the starters to move teams as the Aug. 2 trade deadline nears.

For the Mariners, the Dominican Julio Rodríguez 4-0. The Venezuelans Eugenio Suárez 4-0, Abraham Toro 3-0, Luis Torrens 3-1.

For the Athletics, the Dominicans Ramón Laureano 3-1, Christian Pache 3-0. The Panamanian Christian Bethancourt 3-1 with an RBI. The Venezuelan Elvis Andrus 3-0.
