Cruz, Ober lift Twins over Mariners 7-2

SEATTLE (AP) Nelson Cruz hit a three-run homer against his former team, rookie starter Bailey Ober struck out six and the Minnesota Twins beat the Seattle Mariners 7-2 on Wednesday night.

Cruz's second-deck shot to left field in the fifth inning made it 6-0 and helped snap the Twins' three-game losing streak. It was his 431st career home run, moving him into a tie with Lou Gehrig at 49th on the career list. Ryan Jeffers followed with a solo homer two batters later.

Twins third baseman Josh Donaldson left after scoring in the first inning with right calf tenderness - he's dealt with recurring calf issues the past two seasons. Shortstop Andrelton Simmons was also injured, leaving after the fourth with a left ankle sprain. The team said both are day to day.
