Mariners win on error, back above .500

Jun 22, 2009 - 3:08 AM By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer

SEATTLE(AP) -- Tony Clark dropped a routine throw to first base, allowing Ronny Cedeno to score the winning run for the Seattle Mariners with two outs in the ninth inning of a 3-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Chad Qualls got Franklin Gutierrez to ground slowly toward third where Mark Reynolds charged, fielded cleanly and fired a perfect throw to Clark. The ball hit Clark's glove in the palm and popped out, setting off an awkward celebration for the Mariners, who swept the three-game series and climbed above .500 for the first time since May 7.

Trailing 2-1 after Reynolds' two-run homer in the eighth inning off Seattle ace Felix Hernandez, the Mariners (35-34) scratched out a run in the bottom half.
