WATCH: Nelson Cruz drives in seven runs on two big swings
The Mariners slugger had a grand slam and three-run homer in Seattle's rout of Toronto
Boomstick number one:
A grand slam. Decent.
Cruz would come to the plate in the eighth inning with two on and, well ...
Boomstick number two:
Two homers and seven RBI in two swings. Have a day, Nelson Cruz.
This marks the 20th multi-homer game in Cruz's career. It's his fourth game with at least seven RBI and still one off his career high. He's had two eight-RBI games. Put them together, though, and this is only the second time in Cruz's career that he's had at least two homers and seven RBI (the other coming on Sept. 7, 2014 as a member of the Orioles).
The win gets the Mariners within 3 1/2 games of the Blue Jays for the second AL wild-card spot.
