Indians: Yesterday's attendance of 42,470 was the largest regular-season crowd since Jacobs Field opened in 1994. . . . Eddie Murray's second-inning double was the 540th of his career and tied him for 15th on the majors' career list with Dave Winfield and Ducky Medwick. Murray also stole his third base of the season on a double steal in the seventh.

Mariners: Alex Rodriguez's 16th homer tied Todd Cruz's club record, set in 1982, for homers in a season by a shortstop. . . . After the game, starter Bob Wolcott was optioned to Lancaster of the Single-A California League.
