Nelson Cruz homers again

by Robert Finkelstein | Mariners Correspondent | Sat, Aug 12th 12:35pm EDT

Nelson Cruz went 3-4 in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Angels. All three of his hits were for extra-bases, including two doubles and a solo shot to center field off of a Ricky Nolasco 91.9 mph fastball. The Mariners DH finished the evening with two runs scored and two RBIs.

Fantasy Impact:

Cruz now has 28 HR and an American League leading 92 RBIs on the year. The veteran slugger continues his late season torrid pace. In his last six games, he has recorded a stupendous .440/.462/1.240 slash line in 25 at-bats, hitting six round-trippers and driving in 12 runs. Needless to say, he is a boon in all fantasy settings.
