    SEATTLE (AP) — The rebuilding Seattle Mariners are off to a surprising start.The lineup is leading the way.Omar Narvaez hit a three-run homer off Rick Porcello in Seattle’s seven-run third inning Carlos Zambrano Jersey , sending the Mariners to a 10-8 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday.Dee Gordon had two hits and three RBIs as Seattle put together another impressive performance at the plate. The Mariners scored 34 times while taking three of four from the defending World Series champions in their first series at home.“Right now we’ve got really good confidence, and we know what we can do,” Narvaez said. “Everybody’s basically enjoying the game. Laughing, putting a smile on our face.”Jay Bruce also connected for Seattle, and Mitch Haniger had two hits and two RBIs. The Mariners have 15 homers, hitting at least one in every game in their 5-1 start.“I knew we’d hit some homers,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. “It seems like the ball is carrying here, but those balls are hit. Not too many cheap ones getting out of here.”Porcello (0-1) allowed nine runs, four earned, and six hits in 2 2/3 innings. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award winner struck out three and walked four.Starters Porcello, Chris Sale Mark Grace Jersey , Nathan Eovaldi and Eduardo Rodriguez combined to give up 22 earned runs on 27 hits in the four games against Seattle.“If you told me coming into the series that it was going to be this way I’d say, ‘No chance,’” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “But it’s baseball. Those guys are going to be OK throughout the season. We know that.”The Red Sox almost came back in the ninth. Cory Gearrin came in to pitch for Seattle and walked the bases loaded with one out. Gearrin was then replaced by Chasen Bradford, who walked pinch hitter Blake Swihart to force in a run before retiring Christian Vazquez and Jackie Bradley Jr. to end the game.Narvaez’s drive to right put Seattle ahead to stay. Haniger capped the big inning with a two-run double.Mariners starter Wade LeBlanc (1-0) allowed six runs, four earned, and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.J.D. Martinez hit an RBI single in Boston’s three-run first, and then belted a three-run drive in the fourth for his 1,000th career hit.TRAINER’S ROOMRed Sox: 2B Dustin Pedroia (left knee) played in an extended spring training game. Cora said Pedroia would play in another on Tuesday before beginning a rehab assignment at Single-A Greenville. … OF Andrew Benintendi was out of the starting lineup after fouling a ball off his right knee on Saturday. He walked as a pinch hitter in the ninth.Mariners: Closer Hunter Strickland, who was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right lat strain, will likely be out a couple of months, Servais said.CLOSING COMMITTEEWith Strickland out http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , the Mariners are expecting to use different pitchers at the end of games depending on the situation. Bradford picked up his first career save. The right-hander became the third pitcher to record a save for the Mariners this season.UP NEXTRed Sox: LHP David Price will make his first start of the season as Boston opens a four-game series at Oakland on Monday.Mariners: RHP Felix Hernandez opens his season in the first of a two-game series at home against the Angels on Monday. This is the first season since 2008 that Hernandez did not start on opening day for Seattle. DETROIT (AP) Miguel Cabrera can now say it with a good deal of certainty: Baseball is harder than it looks on TV.”It’s so easy when you watch the game on TV. It’s so slow,” the Detroit slugger said. ”The game is so simple on TV.”It’s not nearly as simple on the field, of course, and right now all Cabrera can do is watch. The Tigers lost their star first baseman in the middle of June to a ruptured biceps tendon, and he’s out for the season. Detroit was in a rebuilding mode anyway, but losing one of the team’s top hitters was a significant blow.Cabrera was back at Comerica Park on Monday night to host an event supporting children’s health and youth baseball programs. He seemed to be feeling good, but he has a long way to go before playing again.”Right now it’s a little slow,” Cabrera said. ”Hopefully in a couple weeks I starting do more stuff, to be healthy again.”Cabrera said he goes back and forth between Michigan and Florida, and he thinks he’s making good progress toward being ready for spring training next year. The two-time American League MVP is 35 now, and this was supposed to be a crucial year for the veteran to show if he could still be one of the game’s most feared hitters after a poor showing in 2017.Instead Kyle Schwarber Jersey , Cabrera has played only 38 games after never playing fewer than 119 in his previous decade with the Tigers.”Really hard, watch the games on TV. It’s really hard don’t be on the field with my teammates. It doesn’t matter if we win or lose. I want to be part of this process,” Cabrera said. ”Right now, I’m focused to be back next year and healthy.”Cabrera’s big contract extends through at least 2023, which means Detroit may have a hard time trading him as part of its rebuild. In 2016, he hit .316 with 38 home runs and 108 RBIs – his eighth straight year finishing in the AL’s top seven in batting average.Then last season, he hit .249 with only 16 homers and an unsightly .399 slugging percentage.There were some decent signs early this year. Cabrera hit .299 with a .395 on-base percentage. But he had only three home runs. He was hitting .323 when he went on the disabled list in early May with a hamstring strain . He came back June 1, but his bat was quiet from then until his season-ending injury June 12.Cabrera’s absence has left a big hole in the lineup, and Detroit has backup catcher John Hicks playing first base quite a bit in his place.Only six players have reached both 500 home runs and 3,000 hits, and with 465 homers and 2 Kerry Wood Jersey ,676 hits, Cabrera still has a good chance to join that group if he can come back and play several more seasons. His pursuit of those milestones is on hold now, though. And Detroit fans can only wonder how effective he’ll be going forward.Cabrera was cheerful Monday night and quick with a laugh, but it’s clear that being out of action is tough for him.”I can’t describe what I’m feeling right now,” Cabrera said. ”I need to stay focused, mentally stay focusing on trying to be back healthy next year.”—
