HOUSTON (AP) Chris Carter, Ronny Cedeno and Brandon Laird homered, Lucas Harrell pitched seven innings, and the Houston Astros beat the Seattle Mariners 10-3 on Wednesday.

The Astros took two of three in the series, and four of their seven wins this season have come against the Mariners, their new AL West foe. Seattle and Miami are the only teams without a series win this season.

Carter hit a solo shot in the second, Cedeno belted a three-run shot in the fourth and Laird also connected for a three-run drive in Houston's five-run sixth.

Harrell (2-2) allowed a run and six hits.
