CLEVELAND (AP) - Mark Reynolds' fielder's choice with the bases loaded in the ninth inning lifting the Cleveland Indians to a 5-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.
 
The Indians, who began the day tied with Detroit atop the AL Central, have won 16 of their last 20.
 
Seattle tied the score at 4-all with two-out, solo homers by Raul Ibanez and Justin Smoak off Indians closer Chris Perez in the top of the ninth.
 
Jason Kipnis, who won Friday's game with a three-run homer in the 10th, led off the bottom of the ninth with a single off Oliver Perez (1-1) and took third on Asdrubal Cabrera's double. Nick Swisher was intentionally walked to load the bases..
 
Reynolds, who drove in three runs, hit a sharp ground ball off reliever Yoervis Medina that was gloved by shortstop Brendan Ryan, but his throw home pulled catcher Jesus Montero off the plate.
