ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Right fielder Mitch Haniger threw out Johnny Field at the plate to end the game, and the Seattle Mariners held off the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 Sunday for their 17th win in 22 games.

Field tried to score from first on a two-out, bloop single by Carlos Gomez.

James Paxton struck out 10 and Kyle Seager hit a go-ahead home run for Seattle. Nelson Cruz and Mike Zunino also homered for the Mariners, who took three of four from Tampa Bay.

Paxton (6-1) gave up three runs and five hits in seven innings. The left-hander has allowed just 14 earned runs over 63 2/3 innings in going 5-0 over his last nine starts.

Edwin Diaz got defensive help from Haniger to post his 23rd save.

Seager gave Seattle a 5-3 lead on his seventh-inning drive off Jose Alvarado (0-3).

Wilson Ramos cut the Rays’ deficit to 5-4 with an RBI single in the eighth.
