Cleveland Indians Beat The Mariners 8-5

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — James Paxton allowed two hits in three scoreless innings and Nick Franklin drove in two runs Wednesday in the Seattle Mariners’ 8-5 loss to the Cleveland Indians.

Cleveland starter Travis Banwart lasted just two-thirds of an inning and allowed four runs and three hits, including a leadoff homer by Abraham Almonte. Banwart left with the bases loaded, and Nick Hagadone walked Michael Saunders and gave up Franklin’s two-run single.

Pinch-hitter Francisco Lindor, a 20-year-old top prospect, hit a tiebreaking double off Danny Farquhar in a three-run ninth.

Ryan Raburn made it 5-all with a two-run homer in a four-run seventh against Lucas Luetge.

Seattle started position players who all could be on its opening-day roster. Robinson Cano singled and scored, and Kyle Seager doubled and scored.
