LOS ANGELES (AP) Nelson Cruz has homered in a career-best fifth straight game for the Seattle Mariners.

Cruz, who signed a four-year, $47 million, contract with the Mariners in December after hitting a career-high 40 homers last season for Baltimore, drove a 1-1 pitch from Brett Anderson to right-center field in the fourth inning of Wednesday night's game against the Dodgers.

Cruz, who led the majors last season with nine interleague home runs, and has four in this series - including two against Brandon McCarthy on Monday night and one against David Huff on Tuesday night.
