Seattle Mariners vs Los Angeles Angels
Nelson Cruz has done plenty of damage against the Los Angeles Angels in his 14-year career, and the Seattle Mariners designated hitter will look to cause more Friday night in the third contest of the four-game series.
Cruz hit a three-run homer Thursday night in an 8-2 victory in the series opener at Angel Stadium, the 359th homer of his career and 50th against the Angels. Alex Rodriguez, who began his career as a shortstop with the Mariners, is the only player with more home runs against Los Angeles (70).
Seattle (80-66) improved to 69-0 when leading after eight innings. The Oakland A's are the only other team in the majors unbeaten in that situation.Read More...
