SEATTLE — Justus Sheffield struck out seven in his longest stint of the season, Dylan Moore hit a two-run homer and the Seattle Mariners beat the Colorado Rockies 5-3 on Sunday. 

Sheffield, one of three pitchers 24 or younger in the Mariners’ starting rotation, gave up four hits without a walk in six scoreless innings. 

Charlie Blackmon extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a first-inning double for the Rockies. 

Colorado, which entered the day with MLB's best record at 11-3, lost for just the fourth time in the 2020 season.
