Dustin Ackley soars in Mariners return home in leading Seattle to 5-2 victory over Mets

At the very least, Roenis Elias’ previous three starts had to cause a hint concern among Mariners’ brass. The left-hander from Cuba had allowed 16 earned runs in 141/3   innings over the past month, and it was fair to wonder if the grind of a long season was starting to take its toll on the rookie. For another reason, the ending of Elias’ start Monday also offered cause...

Elias baffled the Tigers in large...
