Mariners' Cruz homers Tuesday, reaches safely in 35th straight
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/26/15) Mariners designated hitter Nelson Cruz continued his torrid pace at the plate on Tuesday. The slugger went 1 for 4 with his MLB-leading 38th home run--a fourth-inning solo shot--in the 6-5 win over the A's.
Cruz's solo shot got the Mariners on the board, as that began a rally for six unanswered runs. With the home run, Cruz has now reached base safely in 35 straight games. Over that stretch, he is batting .347 with 17 home runs and 26 RBI.
Mariners' Nelson Cruz cracks 35th home run in slugfest loss
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/15/15) Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz got in on the scoring frenzy on Saturday. Cruz went 2 for 3, including his 35th home run of the season. The Mariners would loose the slugfest however, getting outpunched by the Red Sox 22-10.
Cruz's two-run shot came in the eighth inning, cutting Boston's lead to 19-4 at the time. He also had an RBI double earlier in the game, giving him three runs-batted-in for the game.
Cruz snapped a 21-game hitting streak on Friday night, but he picked right back up on Saturday afternoon. He now has seven multi-hit games so far in the month of August.
Mariners' Nelson Cruz sees 21-game hit streak end

Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz ready to roll Friday in Fenway
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/14/15) The hitter the Mariners could least afford to lose will not be lost any longer. Nelson Cruz is set to start Friday night in Boston after neck spasms prevented him from playing since Tuesday.
Cruz has been been raking all year, but has been particularly hot lately. He owns a 21-game hitting streak in which he has blasted 13 home runs. All seven of his RBI in August have come via the long ball.
|2014 summary: Nelson Cruz erased any questions about his productivity coming off a 50-game suspension for his involvement with Biogenesis. He picked up the torrid pace he set through his abbreviated 2013 season with the Rangers and raised it a tick over the course of his 2014 campaign with the Orioles. Cruz set career highs for RBI (108) and runs (87) and his 40 home runs were both a career best and a major league-leading total. His .271 batting average was his highest since 2010, and Cruz finished as a top 10 outfielder in Fantasy. His career year earned him a four-year deal with the Mariners.
Playing time status: Cruz was once a perennial injury risk and playing time liability, but his suspension represents the only significant missed time he has missed over past three seasons.
2015 outlook: We can no longer assume Cruz will miss a large chunk of games and therefore discount his value on Draft Day. Cruz's consistent power production makes him a legitimate top 15 outfielder, but he will be hard-pressed to hit 40 home runs with Safeco Field as his home park. He is still worth an early round pick.
