Jacobsen homers in second straight game

SEATTLE (AP) -- Randy Winn hit a tiebreaking, two-run double with
two outs in the eighth inning to lead the Seattle Mariners over the
Cleveland Indians 7-5 Sunday.

Dan Wilson singled off Matt Miller (2-1) with one out in the
eighth. Pinch-runner Miguel Olivo advanced on a grounder, then
Ichiro Suzuki was intentionally walked. Bob Howry relieved, and
both runners advanced when Victor Martinez couldn't handle Howry's
first pitch for a passed ball.

Winn, a defensive replacement in the eighth, then drove a ball
to the base of the left-field wall, scoring Olivo and Suzuki.

Martinez tied the game at 5 in the top of the eighth with his
first-career pinch-hit home run -- off Shigetoshi Hasegawa (3-3) --
and 16th of the season.

Eddie Guardado pitched the ninth for his 17th save in 22
opportunities.

For the second straight game, the Mariners wasted an early 3-0
lead.

Seattle's Bucky Jacobsen homered a day after hitting his first
career home run and drove in two runs. In three games since being
called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday, the 28-year-old rookie
is 5-for-8 with two homers and five RBI.

On Sunday, He hit a two-out, 425-foot homer to center off
Cleveland starter Scott Elarton in the third to give Seattle a 3-0
lead, two pitches after Elarton threw near Jacobsen's head.

Jacobsen had an RBI single in the Seattle's two-run first. The
hit followed consecutive doubles by Bret Boone and Raul Ibanez.
Jacobsen was also hit by a pitch from Rick White.

White and Cleveland manager Eric Wedge ejected because both
teams were warned in the sixth inning after Seattle starter Jamie
Moyer hit Jody Gerut.

Moyer pitched five-plus innings and allowed eight hits and three
runs.

Lou Merloni drove in four runs for Cleveland. He doubled home
two runs off Moyer in the fourth to pull Cleveland to 4-2, hit his
third homer in the sixth and made it 5-4 with a RBI single off J.J.
Putz in the seventh.

Elarton allowed eight hits, five runs -- four earned -- over 4 2-3
innings. He walked one and struck out five.

Seattle opened a 5-2 lead in the fifth when Ibanez scored when
Justin Leone's popup into shallow right went off the glove of
second baseman Ronnie Belliard for an error.<
