Brandon League Blows Another Save As Seattle Mariners Fall To Cleveland Indians, 5-4

For the second night in a row, Mariners closer Brandon League blew a save and lost the Mariners a hard-fought close game. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, Cleveland Indians designated hitter Travis Hafner launched a two-run walk off home run into center field, giving the Indians a 5-4 victory.

 

Before Hafner’s blast, the Indians knocked League up for back-to-back doubles, which brought the Indians within one run.

 

The Mariners first hit of the game came in the fifth inning when left fielder Carlos Peguero hit his first major league home run into right center field off of Indians starter Fausto Carmona.

 

In the seventh inning Mariners first baseman Justin Smoak hit a two-run home run to give the Mariners a 4-2 lead.

 

However, despite Doug Fister’s eight inning, four hit, two run effort, Brandon League failed to secure the victory for the Mariners in the ninth.

 

The Mariners have now lost six games in a row, with their last four games being decided by two or less runs.
