Cruz, who has homers in each of the first two games, later sprained his ankle, slipping on the dugout steps. He was acquired by Seattle in a waiver claim from the Atlanta Braves on October 27, 2017. Using a fastball that was hitting 100 miles per hour, the right-hander struck out the side, including close friend Francisco Lindor to notch his second save of the season. He hit.281 with a.589 slugging percentage and 24 home runs in his final 95 games. After taking two pitches out of the strike zone from Mariners starter Mike Leake, Encarnacion sat on a cut fastball and blasted it over the scoreboard in the left-field stands. On Saturday, Haniger's solo homer was the first run Seattle scored to chip away at the Indians' four-run head start so it was a bit buried behind other plays, most notably Ichiro Suzuki's memorable catch.

But three relievers held the Mariners in check the rest of the way.

I hope Ichiro plays as long as he wants.

Edwin Diaz struck out all three batters in the ninth for his second save. Two on, two out, Bauer went into his 24-hour mode - when he gets into jams, it takes him about 24 hours to get out out of them - and with the hitless-for-the-series Kyle Seager at the plate, Bauer was in a jam.


No matter how much attention his hits get in the moment, it's clear Haniger is swinging the bat well, something Servais said just started to fall into place late in spring training.

"He came down, doing the customary high-fives to everybody, everything was fine there", manager Scott Servais told reporters. "But right now, we're keeping our fingers crossed that he can bounce back".

The Mariners placed Zunino on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a strained left oblique, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Japanese two-way player Shohei Ohtani will make his pitching debut for the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday against the Oakland Athletics. After making 31 starts for St. Louis, Leake started five games for the Mariners and was 5-3 with a 2.53 ERA.
