SEATTLE -- Eric Thames' two-out single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Seattle Mariners a 3-2 victory on Tuesday night and snapped the Tampa Bay Rays' seven-game winning streak.

Kyle Seager started the winning rally with a single to right field off Tampa Bay closer Fernando Rodney, and pinch-hitter Chone Figgins pushed a bunt that first baseman Carlos Pena fielded. Pena glanced at second, pivoted, double-clutched, and then threw wide of first base.

Seager sprinted to third, and Figgins advanced to second. Justin Smoak's deep sacrifice fly to center field scored Seager to tie the game 2-2 and gave Rodney (2-2) his first blown save since May 26 -- ending the closer's run of 22 consecutive saves.

Thames' hit into short right field on an 1-2 pitch scored Figgins and made a winner of Stephen Pryor (2-0), who worked 1 2-3 innings.
