Indians 10, Mariners 1: Kazmir helps cap trip with win
The Indians’ Michael Bourn is greeted in the dugout after his fifth-inning grand slam.
SEATTLE — The eighth inning was finished and Scott Kazmir knew what manager Terry Francona had in mind. So the left-hander decided to have some fun.
When he saw Francona approaching to end his day’s work at Safeco Field, Kazmir started down the tunnel toward the locker room to escape the manager’s hook. It didn’t work as Vinnie Pestano pitched the ninth to finish the Cleveland Indians’ 10-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners yesterday to end their eight-game winning streak.
