MARINERS WIN 7-4 — The M’s exploded — everything obviously being relative during the spring — for five runs in the ninth to take a 7-2 lead and held on to win 7-4. A Mike Wilson single, a Justin Smoak walk and a Jesus Sucre sacrifice that Wilson beat out to third loaded the bases. Liddi then hit a 3-1 pitch up the middle for a single to score one and Saunders then a double off the base of the wall in left to score two to break it open.
The Mariners are now 9-3-1 on the spring. More later.
2-2 TO TOP NINE — Some internet issues here, but the score remains the same going to the ninth, tied 2-2.
M’S TIE IT IN THE 7TH — The Mariners tied it when Smoak doubled to right and scored on a two-out single by Seager.
BREWERS TAKE 2-1 LEAD IN SIXTH — Saunders lost a fly ball in the sun off the bat of Aramis Ramirez and it fell for a double. Ramirez then scored on a single by Alex Gonzalez to make the score 2-1. Shawn Kelley got the last out, though, with two on so the damage ended there.
M’S TIE IT IN SIXTH — Back from the clubhouse after talking a bit to Hector Noesi. M’s have tied it at 1-1 on a Saunders double, sacrifice, then a sacrifice fly by Ackley to score him from third.
STILL 1-0 TO THE FIFTH — League gave up two hits but no runs in the fourth thanks to a line-out double play turned by Justin Smoak at first. 1-0 to the fifth.
NOSEI DONE AFTER THREE — Noesi is now out in favor of League, having allowed one run on three hits and a walk. Grienke is also now done having struck out 5 of 11 Mariner batters he faced. Brandon League now in for the bottom of fourth. Brewers still lead 1-0.
NO SCORE IN THIRD — Three up, three down for the M’s in top of third. Noesi then faced just three batters in third. Weeks a walk, Aoki an FC, Braun a fly out to center, then Aoki picked off 1-3. So it remains 1-0 to the fourth.
BREWERS TAKE 1-0 LEAD IN SECOND — Nosesi was sailing along, getting the first two outs of the second, before running into some trouble. First, he allowed a full count HR to Federal Way grad Travis Ishikawa, then singles to Caldeb Gindl and Jonathan Lucroy. But he got out of it when pitcher Zack Greinke flied to center. So it’s 1-0 Brewers to the top of the third.
SCORELESS FIRST —- No runs, no hits, no errors, no nothing for either team in the first. A nice beginning for Noesi who got three easy outs, including Richie Weeks to fly lazily to right for the first out and then Ryan Braun to pop to second for the final out on an 0-2 count.
PRE-GAME — It may be snowing in Seattle (last I heard, anyway) but it’s not here. I shot a little video you can access above of the scene here as the game gets set to begin. I’ll pass along scoring plays and highlights once the action begins.
