Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP)  Josh Bard hit his first career grand slam and added a double and two singles, leading the Seattle Mariners over the Cleveland Indians 9-3 Saturday night.

Jason Vargas (9-5) pitched seven innings to earn his third straight win for the Mariners, now 4-1 since interim manager Daren Brown replaced the fired Dan Wakamatsu.  The Mariners posted consecutive road wins for the first time since June 29-30 at Yankee Stadium.

Mitch Talbot (8-10) and reliever Hector Ambriz gave up five runs and made 27 pitches before recording an out in the fifth inning.  The Indians dropped to 3-11 at home since July 24.
