|SEATTLE (AP) -- Ryan Rowland-Smith earned his first win of the season, holding Cincinnati to three hits over six innings and leading the Seattle Mariners over the Reds 1-0 Sunday for a three-game sweep.
Each team finished with only three hits.
It was the best start for Rowland-Smith (1-6) since returning to the starting rotation on June 5. The Reds have lost six of their last seven.
Franklin Gutierrez hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth off Aaron Harang (5-7) for the only run.
David Aardsma shut down the Reds in the ninth for his 15th save.
