Ailing, slumping Mariners 1B Logan Morrison out again Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2015) Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison is still sidelined Sunday against Minnesota with a thumb injury.

Shaw hit his first two career home runs in the game and scored five times. He's the first MLB player to hit his first and second career homers in the same game since Jose Abreu on April 8 of last season. 

"He's a good player, really good," said Red Sox starter Joe Kelly, per MLB.com. "He was probably pressing a little bit when he was first called up. He got his first Major League hit a couple times ago. He's seeing the ball really well and being confident at the plate and putting some good swings. He had a really good day."
