GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (AP) - Jeremy Sowers got a helpful tip from veteran catcher Sal Fasano last summer.

That advice is paying off for Sowers, who pitched four effective innings Monday during the Cleveland Indians’ 4-1 victory over a Seattle Mariners split squad.

Chris Gimenez hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth to win it for Cleveland.

Sowers used to throw only two-seamers toward the left side of the plate and four-seamers to the right side. Now, he’s mixing it up more.

The left-hander allowed one run and three hits in his start against Seattle, striking out two and walking one.
