Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Homers again Sarturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs Saturday against the Indians.

Cruz blasted his 37th homer of the campaign in the eighth inning of the game that was long out of hand. He's homered in four straight contests, and the slugger has been a fantasy force this season, as evidenced by his .289/.377/.550 slash line.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Slugs walk-off shot Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 2-for-3 with a walk and a game-winning two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning in Friday's 3-1 win over Cleveland.

His blast to right-center off Cody Allen was Cruz's 36th homer of the season, and third in as many games. The veteran slugger has already set a new career high with 114 RBI, but with only eight games left on the Mariners' schedule he'll need to stay red hot to have a shot at his fourth consecutive 40-HR campaign.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Goes deep again in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

The veteran slugger snapped the would-be shutout with a 375-foot shot to right in the seventh, his second round tripper in as many games. Cruz hasn't quite been able to maintain the torrid pace he established in August (.341/.413/.747 line), but he boasts a .507 wOBA, .458 ISO and 52.9 percent hard contact rate over the 30 plate appearances spanning his last seven games.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Swats 34th homer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 1-for-3 with two walks and a solo home run in Wednesday's 8-6 loss to the Rangers.

He now has 34 homers on the year, and it'll take a monstrous finish for Cruz to reach the 40-HR plateau for the fourth straight campaign. The veteran slugger now has a .277/.390/.446 slash line in September with three homers and eight RBI in 18 games.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Perfect night at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz went 4-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and four runs in Thursday's victory over the Rangers.

Thursday's contest was Cruz's fourth multi-hit effort in seven games, and it raised his OPS to .916 the highest it has been since August came to a close. Cruz has served as the Mariners' designated hitter in every game since Aug. 25, a streak that figures to continue as the team makes a final push for the postseason.
