CLEVELAND - Shin-Soo Choo's three-run homer in the ninth inning gave Cleveland yet another dramatic win, 7-5 over the Seattle Mariners in the first game of a doubleheader briefly jiggled by an earthquake.

Choo, back in the lineup after missing one game for the birth of his daughter, hit the first pitch from Mariners closer Brandon Lee (1-5) over the wall in left, helping the Indians end a four-game losing streak and keep them from falling further back of first-place Detroit in the AL Central. Choo was mobbed at home plate by his teammates, a fitting welcome for the outfielder who has had a rough season on and off the field.

Chris Perez (3-6) got the win despite giving up a two-run double in the ninth to put the Mariners up 5-4.
