Tommy Bowe had a two-run home run with two outs in the top of the seventh inning to give the visiting Mariners an NLC victory Saturday.

Soldotna (0-4) got two runners on in the bottom of the seventh, but could not move them around.

Klayton Justice pitched the full game for Soldotna.

“I probably made a mistake leaving him in in that last inning, but he’s a tough kid and I thought he could get out of it,” Soldotna coach George Stein said.

SoHi led 5-0 after the first inning. Justice Miller had a two-run home run for Soldotna, while Justice also had a hit that scored two.

“We hit the ball halfway decent, we just left a lot on base,” Stein said.
