The Indians used a strong start from Shaun Marcum, a four-run third and Giovanny Urshela’s first career hit and homer to beat the Mariners, 6-0 on Thursday afternoon.
Marcum struck out five and allowed only two hits over seven innings to improve to 3-1. Zach Walters drove in a run in the second, and in the third the Tribe broke out, Brandon Moss singled, driving in Michael Brantley. Urshela singled, scoring Ryan Raburn and Roberto Perez singled, scoring Moss and Urshela.
Urshela added his first big-league homer in the fifth – and he got both balls back after the game.
