(Sports Network) - Even though they have scored the second-fewest runs in the
American League West heading into the week, the Seattle Mariners find
themselves a half game ahead of the Oakland A's for the top spot in the
On Sunday Bret Boone went 2-for-3 with a homer, double and scored the go-ahead
run to lead Seattle to a 7-6 win over the Anaheim Angels in the rubber match
of a three-game set at Edison Field.
John Olerud had two hits and three RBI, while Ichiro Suzuki had two doubles
and two runs scored for Seattle, which has won three of its last four games.
Dan Wilson also homered for the Mariners.
Shigetoshi Hasegawa got the win after he pitched just one-third of an inning.
Ryan Franklin started the contest and tossed seven innings and gave up just
two runs on six hits.
The Mariners get a day off on Monday before starting a six-game homestand with
a three-game run versus the Cleveland Indians. Last year Seattle went 3-1 at
home and 4-3 overall against the Tribe, but the Mariners are just 11-12 versus
their Central Division foes over the last three years altogether.
Heading to the mound for Seattle will be Freddy Garcia, trying to turn around
a season that has seen him got 1-3 with an ERA of 5.09 to this point. Garcia
has had success against the Indians in his career with a 3-1 record to go
along with his 3.58 ERA.
Boone, who started out the 2003 campaign a bit slow, is now hitting .303 and
aside from Edgar Martinez who has a pair of home runs, is the only player on
the team with more than one homer with five.
Olerud has gotten the most out of his 19 hits to this point, producing a team-
best 14 RBI without a single home run.
