HOUSTON - Seattles playoff hopes took another hit, as Jake Marisnick had a three-run homer for the second straight game and Alex Presley drove in two runs to lead the Houston Astros to an 8-3 win over the Mariners on Sunday. Houston took two of three from the Mariners, who entered the day 1/2 game back for the second AL wild card. Rookie Collin McHugh (11-9) allowed four hits and three runs in six innings to extend his career-best winning streak to seven. Hes the first Astros pitcher to win seven straight since Roy Oswalt reeled off nine in a row from Aug. 23, 2006, to April 17, 2007. The Astros trailed 3-1 in the fifth inning before an RBI double by Jose Altuve. A two-run single by Presley, who finished with three hits, came with two outs in the inning to make it 4-3 and chase Hisashi Iwakuma (14-9). Michael Saunders hit a two-run homer for the Mariners, who were outhit 14 to seven. Iwakuma was trying to bounce back from his last two starts where he was 0-2 with a 12.91 ERA. Instead, he allowed six hits and four runs in 4 1-3 innings for yet another loss. Houston was still up by one in the seventh when Marisnick padded the lead with his homer to the Crawford Boxes that made it 7-3. Two of Marisnicks three homers this season have come in the last two games. Altuve, who leads the majors with a .345 average, went 2 for 4 to give him 220 hits this season. Thats the most hits by a second baseman since Charlie Gehringer had 227 in 1936 for the Detroit Tigers. He was lifted from the game with two outs in the top of the ninth inning and received a standing ovation from the crowd in Houstons final home game of the season. Houston rookie first baseman Jon Singleton turned an unassisted double play for the first two outs of the eighth inning. He caught a liner hit by Austin Jackson before tagging Miller at first base for the second out.

Just days after leaving his post as head coach of the Denver Broncos in a mutual parting, Fox has landed with the Chicago Bears. It was the same story four years ago when Fox was last on the market. He took over as Broncos coach less than two weeks after his contract was not renewed by the Carolina Panthers following a mostly successful nine-year run. Fox had a regular-season record of 46-18 with four AFC West titles during his brilliant tenure with Denver, taking the Broncos to the Super Bowl last season. After the Broncos were dispatched by Indianapolis in the divisional round of the playoffs last Sunday, Denver president of football operations John Elway said he and Fox decided to partt ways because they differed on how to progress into the future.dddddddddddd The Bears had a coaching vacancy the day after the 2014 regular season ended when both Marc Trestman and general manager Phil Emery were fired in the wake of a 5-11 campaign. Trestman was 13-19 in his two seasons with Chicago. Ryan Pace took over as general manager last week and interviewed Fox on Wednesday, just two days after the coach left Denver. Fox has a career record of 119-89 with six division titles and seven playoff appearances in 13 seasons. He was 73-71 with Carolina from 2002-10 and led the Panthers to their lone Super Bowl appearance after the 2003 campaign. The Bears had not hired a coach with previous NFL head coaching experience since Paddy Driscoll in 1956.
