Seattle's Cruz leaves game with injury

SEATTLE (AP) Seattle Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz left Tuesday night's game against the Baltimore Orioles with neck spasms.

Cruz, who had earlier extended his hitting streak to 21 games, was replaced by Ketel Marte before the seventh inning.

Cruz hit his 34th home run and collected his 70th RBI in the first inning. His hitting streak ties Toronto's Troy Tulowitzki for the longest in the majors this season.
