The Houston Astros had a productive day at the plate in a 21-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners in MLB on Sunday.
The Astros tallied 22 hits from 11 different batters against the Mariners and Yordan Alvarez led the way offensively.
Alvarez served as Houston's designated hitter and went four for six with six RBIs.
But the Astros also had great pitching.
Gerrit Cole tallied 15 strikeouts in eight innings of work and only gave up one hit to Seattle, which came on a Shed Long home run in the fourth inning.
Seattle's Felix Hernandez had a poor outing and gave up 11 runs (seven earned) in just two innings.
The Astros are 94-50 and hold a 9.5-game lead over the second-placed Oakland Athletics in the American League (AL) West. The Mariners, on the other hand, are last in the division with a 58-86 record.
Sandy Alcantara recorded eight strikeouts for the Miami Marlins and shut the Kansas City Royals out 9-0.
Eugenio Suarez went three for four and hit two home runs in the Cincinnati Reds' 4-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Yan Gomes hit two home runs in the Washington Nationals' 9-4 win against the Atlanta Braves.
Evan Longoria went hitless and struck out in all four of his at-bats in the San Francisco Giants' 5-0 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
