SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford and Evan Longoria homered for San Francisco, and the visiting Giants playing at home beat the Seattle Mariners 9-3 in a game moved to the Bay Area because of smoky, dangerous air in Western Washington. 

Donovan Solano and Mauricio Dubon hit early RBI singles as the Giants backed Drew Smyly for his first win of the season and snapped a three-game losing streak with a “road” victory at Oracle Park. 

One encouraging development: A familiar mist hovered over the outfield late in the game, not smoke.
