It was a pretty good day for Bryant, whoextended his hitting streak to 13 games with a 2 for 6 effort. He's the only MLB player this season with multiple hit streaks of at least 12 games.
In his last start, Seattle's Felix Hernandez got banged around worse than what the Cubs did to Indians pitching on Wednesday. Hernandez surrendered eight earned runs while lasting just a third of an inning on June 12 in Houston. But on Wednesday, he was back in "King Felix" form and outdueled the Giants' Madison Bumgarner in a 2 0 Mariners win. Hernandez scattered four hits while striking out five with two walks over eight innings. Bumgarner also went eight innings, with nine strikeouts, but gave up a pair of runs in the sixth inning.
Here are more highlights from Wednesday'sgames:
