SEATTLE -- Once the shock of hearing their manager was headed for the hospital after suddenly not feeling well, the Seattle Mariners kept their July power surge rolling. Kendrys Morales and Mike Zunino each homered, Aaron Harang pitched seven strong innings and the Mariners won their season-high seventh straight with a 2-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night. The Mariners improved on the longest current win streak in baseball and did it without manager Eric Wedge on the dugout railing. Wedge suffered dizziness during batting practice and had to be helped off the field and into the Mariners clubhouse by team personnel. Wedge was examined by team physicians Dr. Mitch Storey and Dr. Edward Khalfayan, and the team training staff at the stadium. Despite Wedge eventually feeling better, the team decided to have him examined at a hospital. General manager Jack Zduriencik said before the game he expected the skipper to be back at the stadium Tuesday. But bench coach Robby Thompson, who managed the team on Monday, said Wedge was expected to spend the night. "Right now theyre just doing a series of tests and obviously hes going to stay overnight and well know more in the morning once all of those results get in," Thompson said. "Hes resting and hes feeling fine right now, hes feeling a lot better. ... He should be fine and Im sure the W is going to help him out a little bit." Morales led off the fourth inning with a homer and Zunino did the same in the fifth off Cleveland starter Ubaldo Jimenez, helping Seattle increase its league-leading total to 29 homers in July. The seven-game streak is the longest for Seattle since winning eight straight in August 2012. Cleveland pitchers had gone nine games -- 85 innings -- without allowing a home run. Jimenez (7-5) kept the streak going through 88 innings until Morales led off the fourth with his 15th homer of the season, which curled just inside the right-field foul pole. An inning later, Zunino fell behind 0-2 and Jimenez tried to sneak a fastball past the rookie. But fastballs are the one pitch Zunino has shown he can hit at the major league level, and he lined a 411-foot shot into the left field bullpens for his second career homer. Seattle has now homered in 25 of the last 26 games, the only break in the streak coming last Saturday when they won in Houston with just one hit. "Every day youre a different player, but weve been connecting here and every time you connect thats a positive thing and you can build on that," Morales said through an interpreter. "Youve got to work hard in the cage with your teammates every day and I think thats a fundamental thing that were really focusing on right now." Harang (5-8) gave up a solo homer in the first to Nick Swisher, and danced around trouble for his second win in the last three starts. Tom Wilhelmsen survived the ninth for his 22nd save. Wilhelmsen blew a save in Cleveland earlier this season and gave up a one-out double to Michael Brantley. Carlos Santana grounded out, with Brantley advancing to third before Jason Giambi walked. Wilhelmsen got Lonnie Chisenhall to fly out to right for the final out. "Offensively weve got to pick it up," Clevelands Michael Bourn said. "Not press, but just be focused and take it from there." Harang fell behind early when Swisher homered, but found a groove later. Harang retired 11 of the final 12 batters he faced. He threw only 11 pitches total in the sixth and seventh innings combined. He finished seven innings for the fourth time in 16 starts, allowed four hits and struck out two. "You kind of want to match what the guy did the night before and thats how you get on good streaks. Its that competitiveness in the clubhouse, but were also going out there trying to help our team win," Harang said. "All around the guys have been swinging well, the defence has been playing well and the pitching has been there. Thats what it takes to get on streaks like this." Notes: Seattle rookie SS Brad Miller was named the AL player of the week on Monday after hitting .385 with two homers and seven RBIs in Seattles three-game sweep of Houston. He is the first Seattle rookie to be named player of the week since Ken Griffey Jr. in 1989. ... Swisher was hitting in the No. 2 spot for the first time this season. He had hit in the No. 3 or No. 4 spot all season until Monday. ... Seattle RF Michael Saunders had a 10-game hitting streak snapped. Mens Air Max 90 UK Outlet.
