Mariners OF Nelson Cruz goes for six straight games with HR
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mariners outfielder Nelson Cruz will seek to hit a home run in a sixth straight game Friday against the Rangers. Given his history against Rangers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo, it's a strong possibility the streak might continue.

Cruz is 2 for 2 in his career against Gallardo, with both of his hits being home runs. Cruz has also drawn a walk off the right-hander.

Cruz has already homered six times during his career-best home run streak. His previous best was four straight games, which he accomplished during the 2011 season.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz slugs sixth home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz went 2 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 5-2 loss to the Dodgers Wednesday.

Cruz knocked his MLB-leading sixth home run in the fourth inning of Wednesday's game, but the Mariners weren't able to muster up enough offense to keep up with the Dodgers after giving up three runs in the bottom of the first inning. The right fielder has now hit at least one home run in five straight games. Cruz has hit .294 while collecting nine RBI in nine games.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz homered for the fourth straight game to match the longest streak of his career.

He homered twice off Brandon McCarthy the previous night and has five homers in four games. He has six hits over his last 16 at-bats over that span.

Cruz finished 1 for 3 with two walks, two runs scored and an RBI in a 6-5 victory. He is hitting .258/.324/.742 on the year

Mariners OF Nelson Cruz blasts two home runs Monday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Mariners DH Nelson Cruz hit two home runs Monday, but it was not enough as the Mariners fell, 6-5, to the Dodgers in extra innings.

The two home runs were the third and fourth of the season for Cruz. He finished the game 2 for 4 with three RBI.

Cruz, who has homered in three straight games, has gone 6 for 13 after opening the season mired in a 1-for-15 slump.

"He's finding his groove," Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said after Monday's game, per MLB.com. "He's swinging at strikes, he's getting pitches to drive and he's taking care of them. I think early on he was probably trying to do a little too much, but he's settled in and he's comfortable now."

Mariners' Nelson Cruz rips game-winning home run Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz went 1 for 4 in Seattle's 8-7 win over the Athletics in 10 innings Sunday.

Cruz was quiet throughout the game at the plate, going 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout, before stepping in the box in the 10th. Cruz crushed a 2-0 pitch from Tyler Clippard to left field to give Seattle the 8-7 lead with a solo home run, his second of the year. 

"I didn't think it was going to be out because I hit it at the end of the bat," Cruz said to The News Tribune.

Cruz is now hitting .208 in 24 at-bats to begin the year.
