CLEVELAND — David Pauley finally earned his first career win, helping make Daren Brown’s road debut as Seattle’s interim manager a success, and the Mariners beat the Cleveland Indians 3-2 Friday night.
Pauley (1-4) gave up two runs and seven hits over six innings in his 11th start and 19th career appearance. The right-hander worked in nine games for the Boston Red Sox in 2008 and entered his sixth start of the season for Seattle with a career record of 0-7 and 6.40 ERA.
The Mariners beat Fausto Carmona (11-10) to snap a seven-game road losing streak. They started a season-long 12-game trip in which they play three apiece in Cleveland, Baltimore, New York and Boston. Their 16-40 road record is worst in the AL.
