SEATTLE (AP) — Zack Greinke pitched eight sharp innings, rookie Taylor Jones drove in the only run and the depleted Houston Astros ended a six-game losing streak, edging the Seattle Mariners 1-0. Greinke allowed four hits and walked none. He struck out six, two of them on 67 mph curveballs. Jones, from nearby Kent, Washington, hit an RBI single with two outs in the fourth. He’s been pressed into service after five Astros – including starters Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Yordan Álvarez – were moved to the injured list due to COVID-19 protocols on Wednesday.
