SEATTLE (AP) — Endy Chavez homered for the first time in more than a year and Chris Young combined with five Seattle relievers in the Mariners’ 3-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.
Chavez singled and scored in the first inning, then ended the night for Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer with a solo home run into the right-field seats with one out in the seventh. It was Chavez’s first homer since May 30, 2013, at San Diego, a span of 265 plate appearances.
Kyle Seager had two hits, including an RBI single, to continue his hot hitting at home. Brad Miller also added an RBI single as Seattle won for the sixth time in seven games.
Seager is hitting .613 in his past eight home games.
