Mariners fall to Cleveland 9-0

Posted:

SEATTLE, Wash. --  Travis Hafner hit a two-run homer and Ryan Garko added a three-run shot to give Aaron Laffey and the Cleveland Indians all they needed in a 9-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night.

Ben Francisco and Jamey Carroll added solo homers for Cleveland, which is tied with Kansas City for most losses in the AL at 58. The Indians have won consecutive games for the first time since July 3-4, thanks to their largest shutout win since May 10, 2008.

Laffey (4-2) allowed three hits, struck out seven and walked three in seven innings.

Ryan Rowland-Smith (0-1) allowed four runs in his first start for Seattle since April 10, following an elbow injury and a lengthy, sputtering rehabilitation stint.
