Mike Zunino hit a go-ahead two-run home run, his only hit in four at-bats, as the Mariners enjoyed a 6-5 win over the Indians on Thursday.

Zunino took Indians reliever Bryan Shaw out to left field for his 17th homer of the season, and his third in his last four ballgames. The catcher continues to supply the power but not much else, slashing .212/.262/.438 with 40 RBI.

Jason Kipnis went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run, but the Indians lost by one run to the Mariners on Thursday.

The Indians hung a three-spot on the Mariners in the third, but Kipnis answered back with a two-run homer in the bottom half of the inning, part of the Indians' own three-spot. Kipnis has been slumping at the plate and recently acknowledged that his right oblique muscle is still bothering him. He's slashing .243/.322/.356 with six home runs, 36 RBI, and 15 stolen bases.
Jul 31 - 10:58 PM

Dustin Ackley walked and hit a two-run home run in five trips to the plate as the Mariners narrowly edged out the Indians on Thursday.

The All-Star break seems to have reinvigorated Ackley, as he has been on a tear in the 13 games since. He took Zach McAllister deep for a two-run blast in the third inning, only the fifth time Ackley has gone yard this season. The outfielder has a .253/.301/.375 with 36 RBI on the season.

Marlins optioned LHP Dan Jennings to Triple-A New Orleans.

Jennings boasts a 1.15 ERA over 35 relief appearances for the Marlins this season but for some reason keeps shuttling back-and-forth from Triple-A to the majors. He'll be back up again before long.
Jul 31 - 10:51 PM

Fernando Rodney picked up save number 30, preserving the Mariners' one-run lead in the ninth inning in Thursday's win against the Indians.

Rodney allowed a two-out single, but was able to strike out Lonnie Chisenhall to end the minor threat. The veteran is 30-for-33 in save chances with a 2.06 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP, and a 50/17 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings. Rodney's 30 saves are fifth-best in baseball and tops in the American League.
Jul 31 - 10:50 PM

Marlins optioned INF Ed Lucas to Triple-A New Orleans.

The club needed to clear roster space following Thursday's trade with the Astros. Lucas has hit only .239/.276/.277 at the big league level this season.
Jul 31 - 10:50 PM

Chris Young allowed four runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision on Thursday as the Mariners hung on to defeat the Indians.

The Indians were able to five extra-base hits against Young, including a two-run home run by Jason Kipnis in the third inning. Young allowed seven hits in total along with two walks while striking out just one batter. It was arguably the right-hander's poorest performance in nearly two months, as he has had a renaissance season. He owns a 3.19 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 79/43 K/BB ratio. Young will square off against the Braves at home next week.
Jul 31 - 10:48 PM

Zach McAllister failed to make it out of the fourth inning, allowing four runs in 3 1/3 innings, as the Indians fell to the Mariners on Thursday.

The Mariners hung a three-spot on McAllister in the third, as Dustin Ackley ripped a two-run home run and Robinson Cano later doubled in another run. Overall, the right-hander yielded eight hits, did not walk a batter, and did not record a strikeout. 2014 has been tough for the 26-year-old, as he has a 5.91 ERA, a 1.52 WHIP, and a 54/26 K/BB ratio. He'll try to turn things around at home against the Reds next Tuesday.
