(CLEVELAND, OH) - The Seattle Mariners halted a five-game losing streak with a 3-2 win over the Cleveland Indians.

Ichiro Suzuki gave Seattle a 1-0 lead in the first when he led off the game with a solo homer off Cleveland starter Fausto Carmona.

The Mariners scored another run in the second on a throwing error to take a 2-0 lead.

The Indians came back to tie the game in the bottom of the second on RBI singles by Lou Marson and Eziquiel Carrera.

That was all of the scoring until the top of the ninth when Franklin Gutierrez' sacrifice fly drove home Miguel Olivo with the go-ahead run.

The Indians have lost four in a row and fall five games behind Detroit in the AL Central.
