  • This looks familiar. Ichiro started in left field and went 0-for-2 before being replaced in the eighth.  Alan Chitlik Sportspress Northwest

He drilled 40 home runs in 2014, 44 in 2015, 43 in 2016 and 39 previous year and is 2-for-6 with two home runs and four RBI in 2018.

Yes, the Mariners' speedy center fielder and leadoff man who weighs about half of what Cruz does with his uniform on and weights in his shoes provided some unexpected pop while Haniger continued his torrid start to the season in the Mariners' 5-4 win over the Indians on Sunday afternoon at Safeco Field. The slide was a nice touch, but it was all the ground that the three-time National League stolen base leader covered on the play that made it obvious why general manager Jerry Dipoto chose to acquire Gordon to play a position he was a complete stranger to.

"That was my first-ever slide catch". Seager and Segura had two hits apiece.

Leake worked around early trouble and base runners in multiple innings to pitch seven innings and allow two runs on five hits with three walks and four strikeouts.

Despite this setback, Cruz has been durable in recent years and played at least 152 games four straight seasons from 2014 through 2017.

Encarnacion cut the lead to one with his second homer in the eighth, a two-run shot.

"I wasn't locating my fastball very well, and when I did, it was over the plate", Paxton said.

I'm hoping Bauer carries over the momentum from last season and the offense carries over the momentum of Saturday...

Edwin Diaz struck out all three batters in the ninth for his second save.

"Our team, we know what we've got and we think we're good", Haniger said.

Cleveland closed out last season going unbeaten in their final 18 series (15 wins, three ties) before losing to the New York Yankees in their best-of-five AL Division Series.

Cruz slipped on the bottom stair of the Mariners' dugout on Saturday and sprained his ankle, which forced him from the game.

Seattle Mariners outfielder/designated hitter Nelson Cruz is not in the lineup on Sunday against the Cleveland Indians. "We'll have to wait and see what the results are", manager Scott Servais said. "But right now, we're keeping our fingers crossed that he can bounce back".

The Mariners have elected to place catcher Mike Zunino on the 10-day DL with a left oblique strain, per a club announcement.

Japanese two-way player Shohei Ohtani will make his pitching debut for the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday against the Oakland Athletics.

Seager hit a hard grounder toward first that took a fortuitous bounce over the head of Cleveland's Yonder Alonso. After making 31 starts for St. Louis, Leake started five games for the Mariners and was 5-3 with a 2.53 ERA.
