Matt Kemp followed with a sharp grounder in the hole to 3B Eric Campbell, who threw to second for the force before Daniel Murphy relayed to first. Puig tried to score on the play, but C Travis d'Arnaud took the throw from Lucas Duca and tagged Puig out.

MARINERS: 2B Robinson Cano left the game against the Red Sox in the third inning because of dizziness.

ROCKIES: OF Michael Cuddyer went on the disabled list for the third time this season with a strained left hamstring.
