Mariner’s Win Season High Seventh Straight Game
Kendrys Morales and Mike Zunino each homered to continue Seattle’s July power surge, Aaron Harang pitched seven strong innings and the Mariners won their season-high seventh straight with a 2-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Morales led off the fourth inning with a homer and Zunino did the same in the fifth off Cleveland starter Ubaldo Jimenez (oo-BAHL’-doh hih-MEHN’-ehz), helping Seattle increase its league-leading total to 29 homers in July. The seven-game streak is the longest for Seattle since winning eight straight in August 2012.
Harang (5-8) gave up a solo homer in the first to Nick Swisher, and danced around trouble for his second win in the last three starts.
Tom Wilhelmsen survived the ninth for his 22nd save.
