Aaron Hill hits for cycle, sends Mariners to a 7-1 defeat

This game was already over by the time Aaron Hill poured salt on the wound with a seventh inning home run that capped his bid for the cycle. Hill becomes the first Mariners opponent to hit for the cycle since Miguel Tejada back in 2001.
And so, the Arizona Diamondbacks cruise to a 7-1 win.
Hector Noesi didn’t have what it took to win a game like this one. Not tonight. Too many pitches were left up and hit a long way.
He gave up four extra-base hits among the nine total he allowed — the Mariners allowed five extras among 10 hits as a team — while also yielding four sacrifice flies.
That’s too many balls hit a long way in one game to have much hope of winning. The Mariners had nine hits against Wade Miley over seven frames, but only two for extra bases. One of them, a Casper Wells double, got the run home. But that was it.
Seattle needed far more than that.
