Cleveland – – Cal Rally He didn’t even make it to the Seattle bunker after the game before manager Scott Servis wrapped him in a big hug.
One mask to another.
Raleigh twice, Louis Castle He delivered six solid runs and brought the Mariners their winning streak to five with a 6-1 victory Friday night against the Cleveland Guardians, who at least ended their longest goalless drought in 31 years.
The 25-year-old Raleigh collided with a solo pair in the second half of the rookie Cody Morris (0-1) and connected with a three-stroke shot, 21, in the sixth as the sailors continued to keep up with AL’s busy wilderness chase.
After the game, Service, who lasted 11 seasons in the National League, embraced his young catcher and then spoke of him as a proud father.
“Wow, Cal Raleigh, 21 home,” Service said. “It kind of collected the season.”
Rally started slowly into his second season in the big league, hitting 0.129 on June 1. While he’s only hitting .205 now, he’s hit big, tackling the Seattle bowler’s crew and getting even more assertive.
“See how the season started for him and where he is now,” Service said. “I don’t think anyone could have predicted this, but it was there, you just don’t know when it’s coming out.
“Really, really proud of him and not just at home and what he’s done offensively, but the job he’s doing behind the board. He’s making an impact every night whether he gets hit or not.
“I thought he deserved a big hug afterwards.”
Seattle won seven of eight and 12 of 16.

Cleveland, who lost four of five, maintained their one-game lead at AL Central over second-placed Minnesota, who lost 4-3 at the Chicago White Sox.
The youngest team in baseball looked tired and the guards took another hit before the game when bowlers Zach Plisak (broken hand) and Aaron Ceval (forearm inflammation) were put on the 15-day casualty list.
“No time to panic” Shortstop Amid Rosario He said through a translator. “We have been in worse situations already this year. I trust the team that we will be able to turn things around.”
Plisak broke his hand while hitting the ground last week after giving up his home run against the Mariners. His frustration cost him a start, and perhaps more, and forced the goalkeeper to make Morris make his league debut against a hot Seattle side.
Morris managed to get out of the first to let one run Mitch HannigerDouble RBI.
However, the Mariners added two goals in the second – one not gained – on Rallye’s first and Hanniger’s second double, which rookie Julio Rodriguez scored after hitting Rosario’s foul on the field.
Raleigh, who became the third Musk in Seattle history to score 20 players in a season, was unaware that the Mariners were 17-2 when deep.
“I think I need Homer more than that,” he said with a smile.

He’s been tied for second place in the AL behind the Yankees slugger Anthony Rizzo (18) He is three times shy of matching the team record set by Ryan Jarcoe in 2007.
Rajae Davis was in a familiar place. Not among the familiar faces.
Davis, who hit one of the biggest races in Cleveland history in Game 7 at the 2016 World Championships, is back at Progressive Field. He currently works as a field manager for Major League Baseball.
Manager Terry Francona was thrilled to see Davis, and encouraged him to meet some of the new Cleveland players.
“I told him, ‘Go in and see the players at the club,'” Francona said. “And he said, ‘I only know the coaches.'”
Davis spent two terms with Cleveland, the second in 2018.
