SEATTLE (AP) -- Jason Donald tiebreaking single off Tom Wilhelmsen in the top of the seventh inning completed Cleveland's comeback from seven runs down and lifted the Indians to a 9-8 victory against the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.
Carlos Santana hit a three-run homer and Cleveland reliever Rafael Perez (1-0) pitched a scoreless sixth inning to pick up the win. Chris Perez got his third save in four tries, despite loading the bases in the bottom of the ninth.

It was good to see the Indians' slumbering bats awaken with a bucket-of-icewater start last weekend against the Royals. Maybe the Tribe just needs to ink more aging outfielders if that's what it takes to rouse the offense. What's Cory Snyder doing these days? The Johnny Damon signing is all but official according to most sources. It stands as a necessary if desperate...

The Indians recalled lefty Nick Hagadone to fill Cabrera’s spot on the roster. Hagadone, who...
SEATTLE (AP) -- Jason Vargas zipped through the Cleveland lineup and the top of the lineup provided just enough pop.
Vargas struck out seven in seven innings to end the Indians' four-game winning streak and give Seattle a 4-1 win Wednesday night.
"I was able to locate my fastball early in the game and kind of put them on the defensive," Vargas said.

When the Indians took the field in search of their fifth straight win to take on the Seattle Mariners, things immediately looked different. First and foremost, The Grinder Eric Wedge sent lefty Jason Vargas out to the hill and as we know, left-handed starters, no matter how good they are, have been known to give the Wahoos problems. Acta countered by using as right-handed heavy...
Who’s hot, who’s not?
Week 2 in Major League Baseball is in the books and the Seattle Mariners are still considered a winning team…for now. The team came out firing, pulling off an unlikely comeback win in Texas and taking 2 of 3 from Oakland at home.
Pitching and hitting were both spotty, but both facets are already showing better promise than the last 3 seasons combined...

M’s Arms Under The Spotlight
After starting off the season on a roll by taking three of four against Oakland, the Seattle Mariners came into the four-game series against Texas with no illusions.
The Rangers lineup, which finished 2011 leading Major League Baseball in total team offense, knew the Mariners pitching staff had their work cut out for them if they had any ideas of coming...
