Jose Ramirez’s run-scoring double keyed a three-run rally off Munoz in the eighth as the Cleveland Guardians posted a 4-3 win over the host Mariners. The Guardians will try to split the four-game series when it wraps up Sunday.

The loss spoiled a big day for the Mariners, who held a news conference to announce rookie Julio Rodriguez’s massive new deal and inducted Ichiro Suzuki into the team’s Hall of Fame. Solo homers by Rodriguez, Eugenio Suarez and Jake Lamb gave Seattle a 3-1 lead through seven innings. Munoz walked Steven Kwan leading off the eighth and Amed Rosario singled to right to bring up Ramirez, who provided Cleveland’s only previous run with a homer in the fourth. Ramirez slapped a 101-mph fastball down the left-field line for a double, scoring Kwan to pull the Guardians within 3-2.

Luis Castillo, whom the Mariners acquired at the trade deadline from Cincinnati, was in line for the victory before the bullpen squandered the lead. Castillo allowed one run on four hits over six innings, with one walk and 10 strikeouts.

Civale, who is 0-2 in his past eight starts since his last victory on May 20, is 1-1 with a 3.07 ERA in two career starts against Seattle. Ray, who has won his past two starts, is 0-0 with a 2.57 ERA in two previous appearances against Cleveland, with one start.
