Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Scott Kazmir threw eight dominant innings to help lead the Cleveland Indians past the Seattle Mariners, 10-1, in order to salvage the finale of a three-game set at Safeco Field.

Kazmir (6-4), who remains unbeaten in his last eight outings, made sure he wasn't lost in Cleveland's offensive outburst. He scattered just one hit with two walks while fanning seven and allowed an unearned run.

Michael Bourn crushed his first career grand slam, tying a single-game career- high with four RBI. Asdrubal Cabrera had a very productive day at the plate as well with a solo home run, three RBI and four runs scored. Carlos Santana finished with two doubles while driving in two runs.

After winning his last four starts, Joe Saunders (9-9) was tagged for six runs -- five earned -- on nine hits and three walks in just 4 2/3 innings to absorb the loss.

Nick Franklin and Justin Smoak recorded the only hits for the Mariners, who had a season-best eight game win streak snapped.
