MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Erik Bedard threw six shutout innings and Franklin Gutierrez hit his first home run of the season, sending the Seattle Mariners past the slump-ridden Minnesota Twins 3-0 on Wednesday afternoon.

David Pauley tossed two scoreless innings in relief, Brandon League pitched a perfect ninth for his 12th save in 15 attempts and the Twins managed only seven singles on their way to their fifth shutout this season. They have the worst record in the majors at 16-32 and the fewest runs with 164.

Bedard (3-4) had a lot to do with that, stretching his scoreless innings streak to 14. After missing last year with a bad shoulder, the Canadian left-hander has bounced back in a big way on his $1 million, one-year contract.

He allowed six hits and one walk while striking out four.
