Mariners outfielder Nelson Cruz extended his hitting streak to 19 games with a sixth-inning solo home run off of Colby Lewis on Sunday, adding insurance by pushing the Mariners’ lead to 4-2. Cruz is now hitting .325/.391/.607 with 33 home runs and 69 RBI on the season.

During his 19-game hitting streak, Cruz is batting .422/.473/.928 with 12 home runs and 15 RBI. The Mariners, however, have mustered only a 10-9 record in that span of time. At 52-60 overall, the Mariners sit disappointingly in fourth place in the AL West.
