Seventh-inning struggles doom Cleveland Indians in series finale against Seattle Mariners

Seventh-inning struggles doom Cleveland Indians in series finale against Seattle Mariners

Paxton surrendered four walks in 104 pitches and didn't make it out of the fifth inning.

He replaces starting catcher Mike Zunino, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

Cruz was forced out of Saturday's game in the eighth inning with a sprained right ankle, taking some of the shine off the two-run home run he hit two innings earlier. He'll get an MRI on Sunday, according to news reports.

But on Sunday, his power and his glove in center field led the Seattle Mariners to a 5-4 win against the Cleveland Indians. Gordon bunted Frietas to third, which is when things got interesting. Cleveland catcher Yan Gomes lofted a fly ball into shallow left-center field, and Gordon made a pair of mistakes on the play - first he stepped back when he saw the ball come off the bat, then despite having the speed to get to the ball didn't take charge and instead let shortstop Jean Segura try to make an over-the-shoulder catch. RHP Mike Clevinger will make his first start of the season. What should have been an inning-ending out turned into an RBI double for Seager.

Nobody has been hotter to start the season at the plate than right fielder Mitch Haniger.

Francona should not expect a sympathy card from Servais.

"Our team, we know what we've got and we think we're good", Haniger said. "We've had a few bad hops go our way with all the injuries and everything else. I'm glad it worked out", Suzuki said through an interpreter.

He was acquired in a waiver claim from the Braves in October after making his major league debut with Atlanta last season.

With the M's now heading down to San Francisco to start their first road trip, here are three storylines to keep an eye on this week. The Mariners are already without outfielder Ben Gamel and pitcher Erasmo Ramirez due to injuries suffered in spring training similar to Zunino's. By the time the Mariners climbed to.500 in late June, they trailed Houston by 12.5 games.
