Player Notes
Nelson Cruz hit a solo home run in a 1-for-4 effort as the Mariners dropped Tuesday's game to the Diamondbacks.

Advice: The Mariners had fallen behind 6-1 after the top of the sixth when Cruz got one back with a solo shot off of Zack Godley in the bottom half. It's his fifth home run in his last eight games, giving him 26 on the season with 61 RBI and a .309/.375/.559 batting line.

Nelson Cruz went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI, but the Mariners dropped Wednesday's contest to the Tigers.

Advice: Cruz got back some of the runs the Mariners gave up in an eight-run third inning, taking Anibal Sanchez out to left field for a two-run home run in the fourth. He tacked on a solo home run in the sixth against Sanchez. Cruz homered on Tuesday, which ended a 13-game homerless drought. Perhaps he's rediscovered his power stroke. He has 24 home runs on the year with 57 RBI and a .304/.372/.554 triple-slash line.

Wed, Jul 22 Rotoworld
Nelson Cruz hit a tape-measure solo home run in a 1-for-5 effort as the Mariners took down the Tigers on Tuesday.

Advice: Cruz extended the Mariners' lead to 5-1 when he drilled a no-doubter way over the center field fence at Comerica Park in the third inning off of Shane Greene. It's his first home run since July 3. He's certainly fallen off a bit in the AL home run race, currently sitting on 22 with 54 RBI and a .300/.369/.533 batting line.
