Murphy homers again in Mariners' 7-4 win over Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Tom Murphy is on a power surge unprecedented for a Seattle catcher, and it is coming at a bad time for the Tampa Bay Rays.

Murphy hit a tiebreaking homer, his sixth in the last four games, in the sixth inning Tuesday night to lift the Mariners to a 7-4 win over the Rays.

Murphy's 16th homer of the season came off Jalen Beeks (5-3) after a walk to Kyle Seager. Murphy became the first Mariners catcher to homer in four straight games. He said it is a matter of "staying within the strike zone," like he did for two months in Triple-A back in 2016.
