Tomlin, Cleveland 1-Hit Mariners

SEATTLE (AP) -- Cleveland's Josh Tomlin threw a one-hitter against the Seattle Mariners, striking out a career-high 11 in the Indians' 5-0 victory Saturday night.

It was just the second complete game of Tomlin's career and the first one-hitter by a Cleveland pitcher since Billy Traber did it against the Yankees on July 8, 2003.

Tomlin (5-5) didn't walk a batter and a leadoff single by Kyle Seager in the fifth inning was the only blemish on his evening.

The Indians jumped on Mariners starter Roenis Elias (7-6) for a pair of runs in the first inning. Asdrubal Cabrera doubled and scored on a single from Michael Brantley.

Brantley advanced to second on the throw home and scored on a double by Carlos Santana to give the Indians a 2-0 lead.

Mike Aviles singled with one out in the fifth and came around to score on Michael Bourn's double. A balk by Elias moved Bourn to third and Cabrera's sacrifice fly scored Bourn to give the Indians a 4-0 lead.

Meanwhile, the Mariners couldn't solve Tomlin.

Seager singled to leadoff the fifth and took second on a wild pitch and advanced to third when the throw from catcher Yan Gomes sailed into center field. He was left stranded as Michael Saunders struck out looking to retire the side.

Yan Gomes homered off Elias (7-6) in the sixth inning to extend Cleveland's lead to 5-0.
