Mariners Vs. Indians, Game 2 Final Score: Seattle Back In Win Column After 4-1 Victory

The Seattle Mariners are back in the win column following Wednesday night's game against the Cleveland Indians at Safeco Field. The M's improve to 7-6 following the 4-1 win and stay in second place in the American League West.

The Mariners went ahead right away and stayed there. In the bottom of the first inning, Chone Figgins and Ichiro Suzuki hit solo home runs for a quick 2-0 lead. They tacked on another run in the bottom of the second on a bases-loaded walk to Jesus Montero.

The Indians would get their lone run of the game in the top of the third inning. Aaron Cunningham led off with a double, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt and score on a sacrifice fly by Jason Kipnis. That would be as close as the Indians would get, as Dustin Ackley singled home Brendan Ryan in the bottom of the fourth. The M's hung on and made the 4-1 score hold up.

Jason Vargas was once again solid for the Mariners, improving to 2-1 on the season with just one run allowed in seven innings, giving up four hits and three walks, while striking out seven. Brandon League picked up his fifth save of the year with a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

The Mariners will have a chance to pick up the series win on Thursday night.
