One out from victory, with none on, the Mariners bullpen blew this game. Brandon Morrow issued three straight walks with two out, bringing Miguel Batista into the game. Batista yielded a high chopper to third for an infield hit by Denard Span.
Alexi Casilla then laced a ball up the middle for a two-run single to bring the Twins from behind and hand the M’s a stunning 6-5 loss.
Not much to say. This is spring training — continued — where the closer job is concerned.
