SEATTLE (AP) — Cleveland’s Josh Tomlin threw a one-hitter against the Seattle Mariners, striking out a career-high 11 in the Indians 5-0 victory Saturday night.

It was just the second complete game of Tomlin’s career and the first one-hitter by a Cleveland pitcher since Billy Traber held the Yankees to one hit on July 8, 2003.

Tomlin (5-5) didn’t walk a batter and a leadoff single by Kyle Seager in the fifth inning was the only blemish on his evening.

The Indians jumped on Mariners starter Roenis Elias (7-6) for a pair of runs in the first inning. Asdrubal Cabrera doubled and scored on a single from Michael Brantley.

Brantley advanced to second on the throw home and scored on a double by Carlos Santana to give the Indians a 2-0 lead.

The Indians wrap their series with the Mariners on Sunday.
