We’re told that Brendan Ryan has a left foot contusion and will be day-to-day. He fouled a Brandon League pitch off his foot earlier on.
It’s now a 6-3 game in favor of Team 2 after a three-run bottom of the fifth against Josh Kinney. Munenori Kawasaki tripled to right field, then scored on a Chone Figgins single. Dustin Ackley stepped up next and belted a two-run homer, seen in the video above.
1:00 p.m.: worked his third walk in four intrasquad plate appearances, this one off of Blake Beavan, while Dustin Ackley followed with a single. Ichiro and Justin Smoak singled after that to tie the game up 2-2.
12:31 p.m.: Brendan Ryan just came out of the game after fouling a Brandon League pitch off his left foot. He was attended to on the field by trainer Rick Griffin. Will try to find out more.

12:13 p.m.: Franklin Gutierrez, seen in the photo above taking BP earlier this morning, is starting in center and batting leadoff for Team 2 today in his first spring training intra-squad action. Jesus Montero will be batting cleanup for Team 2 and catching.
Gutierrez got things going in a big way, leading off the game with a solo homer to left off Felix Hernandez. Hernandez got through the rest of the frame.
Hector Noesi came on in second inning then nearly the second inning and erased a Kyle Seager single with an Alex Liddi double play grounder. But Michael Saunders drew a two out walk, stole second and scored on a Luis Rodriguez single, just beating the throw home.
Kevin Millwood had a perfect first inning so it’s 2-0 as we head to the bottom of the second.
