M's win streak snapped as Saunders takes some damage

SEATTLE -- The soaring Mariners came back to Earth in inglorious fashion on Wednesday, as the Indians rolled to a 10-1 victory at Safeco Field, but the team's thoughts after the game were more on manager Eric Wedge than the end of an eight-game winning streak.

Wedge was released from the hospital after being diagnosed with a mild stroke, but missed his third straight game and isn't expected back for at least another 10 games.

Bench coach Robby Thompson will handle the team in Wedge's absence and met with the players after Wednesday's game, along with general manager Jack Zduriencik, to deliver the news.
