CLEVELAND -- It was another walk off win for the Tribe as they beat the Seattle Mariners 10-8 in 10 innings.

Yan Gomes hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and the Cleveland Indians, twice revived by Seattle's fielding errors, beat the Mariners 10-8 on Monday to complete a four-game sweep of the Mariners.

Gomes, who also homered in the second, drove a 3-2 pitch from Charlie Furbush (0-3) over the wall in left, giving the Indians their fifth straight win and third walk-off over the Mariners in four days.

As Gomes reached the plate he was mobbed by his teammates following an improbable win that came after Cleveland's bullpen gave up homers in three consecutive innings.

It was the Indians' first four-game sweep of Seattle since 1981, and the comeback gave Cleveland its 18th win in 22 games. Joe Smith (2-0) won despite giving up a go-ahead homer to Justin Smoak in the 10th.

This on the same day that Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Justin Masterson has been named the American League Player of the Week for the period ending May 19.

The announcement was made earlier Monday on the MLB Network.
