Indians Vs. Mariners Final Score: Manny Acta Ejected As Cleveland Drops 8th Straight Game, 3-1

The second half of misery pressed on for the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday afternoon in Seattle. Manny Acta's skidding team dropped its eighth consecutive game in a 3-1 loss to the Mariners.

Indians pitcher Zach McAllister walked away with a no-decision despite a stellar outing that included six innings of one-run ball with four strikeouts. McAllister now sports a 3.50 earned-run average over 14 starts this season. After being held without a run through five innings by Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma, a sixth-inning infield single by Casey Kotchman brought home outfielder Shin-Soo Choo to tally the sole Indians run of the day.

Acta, who was ejected from the game by second base umpire Ed Hickox for arguing the game's deciding play in the eighth inning that scored a pair of Seattle runners, is now forced to prepare his squad for a brutal three-game series with the Yankees starting Friday. Righty Corey Kluber will take the mound to kick off the series in an effort to get Cleveland out of its disastrous slump.
