Player Notes
Nelson Cruz had himself another mighty impressive afternoon on Sunday, clobbering a pair of home runs and delivering a walk-off RBI single in the 10th inning, leading the Mariners to a come-from-behind 11-10 victory over the Rangers.

Advice: Cruz belted a solo shot off Ross Detwiler in the first inning then tagged him again for a three-run blast in the third. With the bases loaded in the ninth inning, he lined the game-winning single off Rangers closer Neftali Feliz to complete the comeback after the M's trailed 10-5. Cruz, the Major League leader in home runs, has blasted eight long balls in his last eight games. He's now slashing a monstrous .354/.404/.854 with 14 RBI on the season, doing exactly what the Mariners envisioned when inking him to a contract this winter.

Nelson Cruz homered in his fourth consecutive game on Tuesday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Advice: Cruz, who finished 1-for-3 with a pair of walks, took a David Huff offering out to left field in the first inning for his fifth home run of the season. All five have come in the outfielder's last four games. Cruz has been exactly what the Mariners paid for when they signed him to a four-year, $57 million contract in December. He led the majors with 40 homers last season.
