Mariners top Tribe 3-2


Fausto Carmona pitches in the second inning against the Seattle Mariners on Monday.


CLEVELAND — Franklin Gutierrez lifted a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the ninth inning and the Seattle Mariners scored the go-ahead run without getting a hit to beat the Cleveland Indians 3-2.

The Indians, swept by AL Central-leading Detroit over the weekend, lost their fourth in a row.

Cleveland closer Chris Perez (2-6) hit both Miguel Olivo and Brendan Ryan with pitches to start the ninth. Perez then compounded his problems by dropping a sacrifice bunt by Trayvon Robinson, loading the bases with no outs.

Ichiro Suzuki, who already had three hits, struck out. But Gutierrez, formerly of the Indians, hit a fly to medium center field and Olivo barely beat Ezequiel Carrera’s one-hop throw home.
