Nelson Cruz (ankle) sitting out Sunday as Mariners host Indians

Mariners call up UH alum Freitas

The Mariners placed starting catcher Mike Zunino (oblique) on the 10-day disabled list Friday, opening the spot for Freitas.

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.

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

"I joked with him (Saturday) and said, 'You really didn't want to play the outfield, did you?' And he got mad at me", M's manager Scott Servais told reporters before Sunday's series finale, which Seattle won 5-4.

Freitas was 5-for-21 (.238) in 11 Cactus League games with the Mariners this spring. "We've had a few bad hops go our way with all the injuries and everything else".

Ichiro Suzuki got his first hits since returning to the Seattle Mariners and stole a home run from the Cleveland Indians in Saturday's 6-5 loss.

Similarly, when Kate was pregnant with Princess Charlotte , she gave birth 37 days after beginning her maternity leave . Princess Anne and her husband, Vice Admiral Timothy Laurence, led the royal family down the hill to the chapel.

Seager hit a hard grounder toward first that took a fortuitous bounce over the head of Cleveland's Yonder Alonso.

"We'll have to wait and see what the results are", Servais said. He occasionally plays right field in those games. Trevor Bauer takes the hill versus the Mariners who he faced once last season. The road trip continued to Anaheim, where they got swept.

Two batters later, second baseman Robinson Cano singled to left field, and then, right fielder Mitch Haniger belted a two-run home run to left field off of Indians reliever Tyler Olson.

As if Seattle needed more injury issues, Cruz left the game with a twisted right ankle after slipping on the dugout steps following his home run in the sixth inning. Leake was 3-1 with a 2.53 ERA in five starts after being acquired by Seattle late last season.

"Freak accident, kind of unbelievable at times, some of the things we've gone through here".
