Cano homers late, lifts Mariners to 7-4 win over Astros

SEATTLE (AP) Robinson Cano hit his first home run since returning from an 80-game suspension, a three-run shot in the bottom of the eighth inning and lifted the Seattle Mariners to a key 7-4 win over the Houston Astros on Monday night.

Seattle won its fifth straight against the Astros, thanks to a huge night from Cano. He doubled twice earlier in the game - his first two extra-base hits since coming back from his suspension for violating baseball's joint drug policy. But those were precursors to his drive to left-center field off Houston's Collin McHugh (5-2) with one out in the eighth.

It was Cano's fifth home run of the season and his first since May 12 against Detroit. Seattle pulled within 3 1/2 games of Houston in the division race, while the Astros fell back into a tie with Oakland for the top spot in the AL West.
