Mariners beat Indians 9-4


CLEVELAND, Oh. --  Bill Hall drove in two runs in his first game for the Seattle Mariners, helping rookie Luke French to a 9-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.

Hall, acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday, started in left field and had two hits. He put Seattle ahead 1-0 with an RBI single in the second inning off David Huff (7-7). His sacrifice fly in a two-run third made it 3-1.

Jose Lopez hit a two-run homer and Russell Branyan and Josh Wilson had solo shots for Seattle, which won for the third time in eight games.

French (3-3) allowed three runs and eight hits over six innings to improve to 2-1 in four starts since being acquired July 31 as part of the deal that sent veteran pitcher Jerrod Washburn to Detroit.
