Gordon goes deep as Mariners take first series of season

The Mariners have been 2-1 through their first three games of a season as recently as 2016, but there seemed to be some extra enthusiasm coming from their series win over the Cleveland Indians.

The Indians took the lead on Yonder Alonso's first-inning grand slam.

Kyle Schwarber tied it for the visitors in the second with a two-run homer, and the Cubs took a three-run lead in the fifth, but Darvish couldn't hold it.

Dee Gordon isn't known for hitting home runs, and before this year he'd never played the outfield. Suzuki passed Cap Anson on the hits list with 3,082. He's done just about everything in the game, both at the plate and in the field.

Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco wasn't at his best, either, but pitched into the sixth inning to get the victory.

Gordon, who has never hit more than four homers in a season, led off the seventh inning with a tiebreaking shot to right off Dan Otero (0-1). He hit.281 with a.589 slugging percentage and 24 home runs in his final 95 games.

Carlos Carrasco gave up seven hits and five runs in 5 2/3 innings, but the Mariners couldn't mount any offense against relievers Zach McAllister, Andrew Miller and Cody Allen.

The Mariners totaled ten hits and a walk with Mitch Haniger going solo and Nelson Cruz slugging a two run homer. He'll get an MRI on Sunday, according to news reports. Cruz was wearing a protective boot after the game.

While Mariners manager Scott Servais said that Zunino was available in a catch-only capacity if an emergency situation cropped up that night - and it almost did with Mike Marjama getting hit on the glove hand with a bat on a catcher's interference - Zunino spent the game in the training room and clubhouse. "You've got a lot good lineups right now, especially in the A.L., but I'd put Cleveland in the Top Five, at least".

Zunino suffered the injury during batting practice on Wednesday and is the latest addition to Seattle's list of ailments that started in spring training and has carried into the regular season.

Cruz's absence was felt in the eighth after Robinson Cano led off with a bloop double but never advanced.

The Cleveland Indians offense overcame shaky pitching Saturday in a 6-5 win at Seattle.

Atlanta's David Freitas, right, got the ball from his first major league hit from Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Cesar Hernandez on August 30.

Mariners: Mike Leake makes his 2018 debut trying to build on his close to 2017.
