BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) — A minor league team of the Seattle Mariners has pulled off a major rally, coming back from a 16-run deficit to win in the Class A Midwest League.

The Clinton LumberKings trailed the Burlington Bees 17-1 after five innings Wednesday night in the game between clubs based in Iowa. Clinton wound up winning 20-17 in 12 innings.

Clinton scored six runs in the sixth inning, five in the eighth and five more in the ninth to tie it at 17.

Justin Seager, the younger brother of Seattle third baseman Kyle Seager, drove in the go-ahead run in the 12th. Seager finished with four hits.

Burlington is an affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels.
