Fister's tough start dooms Astros in 12-4 loss to Mariners

HOUSTON (AP) Another bad start by Doug Fister doomed the Houston Astros on Wednesday.

Robinson Cano hit a three-run homer in the first inning, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Astros 12-4 to keep pressure on the other AL wild-card contenders.

Kyle Seager added another three-run drive in the eighth, his 30th home run this season, as Seattle pulled within 1 1/2 games of Baltimore for the second AL wild card. Houston dropped three games back as its magic number for elimination was cut to two. The Orioles were at Toronto on Wednesday night.
