Cleveland downs Mariners

SEATTLE — Shin-Soo Choo drove in five runs with a bases-loaded double and a two-run home run to give the Cleveland Indians a 6-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night.

Choo, traded to the Indians by Seattle in 2006, hit a 3-1 fastball from Doug Fister (4-11) against the right-center-field wall in the Indians’ four-run sixth to score all three runners without a throw.

He added his two-run shot in the ninth to match his season-high for RBIs. Choo had five RBIs against the Chicago White Sox on April 18.

Choo leads Cleveland in home runs (16) and RBI (68).

Asdrubal Cabrera had three hits for the Indians.

Josh Tomlin (3-3) allowed seven hits, three runs, struck out five and walked none. Chris Perez worked the ninth to pick up his 17th save.
