Mariners' McClendon: Nelson Cruz hasn't hit hot streak yet
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Mariners outfielder Nelson Cruz is the top hitter in the American League so far. The slugger leads the AL in average entering Saturday's games with .358, home runs with 15 and tied for the lead in RBI with 30. However, manager Lloyd McClendon still thinks his peak has yet to come, according to MLB.com.

"To be truthful, I don't think he's gotten hot to the point where it's just ridiculous," said McClendon. "He's grinding at-bats out and getting his hits, he's going the other way. If they make a mistake, he'll hit it out. But I've seen him to the point where he'll get hot and hit good pitches out of the ballpark and that hasn't happened yet."

McClendon believes more home runs are on the way for Cruz.

"I think home run hitters, when they get hot, they hit home runs in bunches and he hasn't done that yet," McClendon said. "His have been spread out. A few here and a few there. He did have a streak where he hit [six] in five days or something like that, but there's a big streak in there that hasn't come out yet."

Mariners' Nelson Cruz unleashes MLB-leading 15th HR vs. Padres
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz launched his MLB-leading 15th home run of the season during Tuesday's win over San Diego.

Cruz took reliever Frank Garces deep for a solo home run in the eighth inning. He singled in a run in the sixth and finished 2 for 4 with a walk, two runs scored and two RBI in an 11-4 victory.

"What can I say, I love hitting in this ballpark,'' Cruz told Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY prior to the game. "We have such a great batter's eye here, and I see the ball good.

"This is where I wanted to come. I don't care about the numbers. I just wanted to be on a winning team, to be in the playoffs. I thought it would be nice to come here and bring joy to the fans.

"So it was easy to come here.''

Cruz, who signed a four-year contract in the offseason, is hitting .349/.401/.754 with 15 homers and 29 RBI this season.
