They were the first runs Olson has allowed with Cleveland - a year ago he threw 20 scoreless innings in 30 appearances for the Indians.
Yes, the Mariners' speedy center fielder and leadoff man who weighs about half of what Cruz does with his uniform on and weights in his shoes provided some unexpected pop while Haniger continued his torrid start to the season in the Mariners' 5-4 win over the Indians on Sunday afternoon at Safeco Field.
The Indians took the lead on Yonder Alonso's first-inning grand slam. 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.
"I wasn't locating my fastball very well, and when I did, it was over the plate", Paxton said.
After a slow start last season, the 26-year-old Zunino finished with a.251 average, 25 home runs and 64 RBIs in 124 games. Three games in, Haniger is rocking a robust.625 average (5 for 8) with two walks and three extra base hits. Mitch Haniger homered for the Mariners in the second and Suzuki singled and scored the first of two Seattle runs in the third.
But Seattle could never draw even as Zach McAllister and Andrew Miller pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings, before Cody Allen pitched the ninth for the save.
Scientists can't verify nerve agent source
British authorities suspect Skripal was poisoned by a Soviet-made nerve agent. He reiterated that the substance could not have come from Porton Down.
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. Cruz was wearing a protective boot after the game. Zunino has a Grade 1 oblique strain and manager Scott Servais said the hope is Zunino won't need much more than 10 days to recover. "I really don't know any other way to put it".
Per the club, the injury occurred during a workout on Wednesday.
Cruz's absence was felt in the eighth after Robinson Cano led off with a bloop double but never advanced.
After what they saw against Cleveland, the Mariners have to feel good about the possibilities with their new leadoff hitter and center fielder. Ramirez is likely to throw another simulated game before going out on a rehab assignment.
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.
