Morrow gives up first run

It took 7 2/3 innings, but somebody finally got a spring run off Mariners pitcher Brandon Morrow. The first-round pick from last June yielded singles to the first two hitters he faced, Ian Kinsler and Brad Wilkerson, then got Nelson Cruz on a flyball to center.
Both runners tagged up and advanced on Seattle center fielder Adam Jones, whose throw to third was well off line. Morrow then walked Gerald Laird on four pitches and yielded an RBI groundout to second by Mike Standridge. Pinch-hitter Jerry Hairston Jr. then bounced into a fielder’s choice at third to end the inning, with Texas back on top 7-6.
In all, I’d say a good job done by Morrow recovering from the two early singles. He might have held the run off the board had the runners not tagged up. Every pitcher gets hit at some point. Better it happen to him now. It’s how well he recovered and didn’t let the inning get away from him that could prove telling.
