Mariners fall 6-3 to Indians

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Nick Swisher made his spring debut for the Indians and top prospect Francisco Lindor hit a three-run homer to help Cleveland beat the Seattle Mariners 6-3 Sunday.

Robinson Cano got an RBI groundout in the first for Seattle.

Last week, Swisher handed out T-shirts to teammates that read “Unfinished Business,” setting the tone to improve on the Indians’ brief playoff run last season. On Sunday, he drove in a run on a fielder’s choice.

Lindor’s shot over the right field wall was his first of the spring. Left fielder Michael Brantley added three hits and second baseman Jason Kipnis had an RBI triple.

Randy Wolf, making his first appearance since having Tommy John surgery on his left elbow in October of 2012, pitched two shutout innings for Seattle.

Left fielder Dustin Ackley hit a two-run homer off Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer.
