Mariners 4, Dodgers 2

Hiroki Kuroda settled down after running into some trouble during a three-run third inning for the Mariners, but the Dodgers never recovered as they struggled to put anything together offensively against four Seattle pitchers. Matt Kemp's homer and Andre Ethier's sacrifice fly accounted for Los Angeles' only runs.
