Haniger, Gordon homer in Mariners' win over Indians

Mariners call up UH alum Freitas

Mariners call up UH alum Freitas

A few hours before the Thursday night opener, they learned catcher Mike Zunino would sit out with a slight oblique strain.

Alonso hit his third career grand slam in the first inning, Yan Gomes added a two-run shot and the Cleveland Indians held on for a 6-5 win over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.

After getting the first two batters out with a strikeout and fly out, Bauer worked his way into and out of a jam in the bottom of the third inning. X-rays were negative but Cruz will undergo an MRI on Sunday. "We've had a few bad hops go our way with all the injuries and everything else".

In just his second game back with the Seattle Mariners after a five-plus year absence, future Hall of Fame outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is already showing us why he's one of the greatest players in franchise history.

"Heck of a series by our guys", manager Scott Servais said after the Mariners' 5-4 victory in the Sunday afternoon rubber game. He's done just about everything in the game, both at the plate and in the field.

"It's frustrating. I wish there was a word that's more than that", Zunino said on Saturday.

France set for massive railway strike against President Macron's reforms
Macron wants to transform SNCF, which adds €3 billion to its 47 billion euro debt pile each year, into a profit-maker. More than half of French people view the strikes as unjustified, according to an Ifop poll published on Sunday.

"That's one of the things (that will be) a little bit of a hiccup that you'll see once in a while until Dee gets totally comfortable out there", he said.

The Mariners got a solid outing from veteran right-hander Mike Leake, who picked up where he left off last season with the team.

After celebrating the homer with his teammates, Cruz walked down the steps toward the indoor batting cage and slipped, wrenching the ankle that had him in a protective boot post-game. After making 31 starts for St. Louis, Leake started five games for the Mariners and was 5-3 with a 2.53 ERA.

Two batters later, second baseman Robinson Cano singled to left field, and then, right fielder Mitch Haniger belted a two-run home run to left field off of Indians reliever Tyler Olson.

"I'm glad we could finish my first start with a win", said Maeda, who had been used exclusively in relief in last year's postseason.
