SEATTLE (AP) — Mitch Haniger hit his 12th home run, Justus Sheffield picked up a win against the team that drafted him and the Seattle Mariners beat Cleveland 7-3. 

Dylan Moore added a three-run homer off Triston McKenzie to break open a close game and give Sheffield the win in a showdown of former Cleveland first-round draft picks. Sheffield worked out of jams in the second, fourth and sixth innings and overcame three doubles by José Ramírez for the win. 

A night after being called up, Donovan Walton went 2-for-4 as the Mariners' designated hitter.  Hit knocked in two runs with an eighth inning triple.

The Mariners have won two straight after a string of five losses.
