Cruz 100th homer at Texas as Mariners beat Rangers 9-7

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Nelson Cruz hit consecutive pitches deep into the left-field seats at his former home. The first one was called foul. There was no question about the next swing.

Cruz hit the first of Seattle's three home runs, his 100th at the Rangers ballpark, and the Mariners went on to a 9-7 victory Saturday night.

"He didn't miss that pitch again. He didn't miss it the first time," said Mitch Haniger, who also went deep for the Mariners. "Just shows you how good of a hitter he is, to stay composed and do it again on the next swing."
