  Astros start fast, batter Ray for 3-game sweep of Mariners SEATTLE (AP) — Jose Altuve and Jeremy Peña hit back-to-back home runs off Robbie Ray to begin the game, and the Houston Astros roughed up the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner in an 8-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners that completed a three-game sweep Sunday. Martín Maldonado had three RBIs from the No. 9 spot in the lineup and All-Star lefty Framber Valdez (9-4) took a shutout into the seventh inning for the Astros, who won their fifth straight and increased their AL West lead to 13 games over second-place Seattle.

No. 1 pick Paolo Banchero went home to Seattle and put on a show.

Banchero jumped on the court in The Crawsover, Jamal Crawford’s well-known pro-am in Seattle, and toyed with everyone else, dropping a 50 spot.

Banchero was born and raised in Seattle and said it’s “mandatory” the NBA put an expansion team in the city.

He wasn’t alone in showing out at the Crawsover. Another Seattle native, Jaden McDaniels, had a game-high 52.
