Mariners 3, D’Backs 3 – A tie? A tie? What is this soccer?

BOX SCORE … 03.10.14 Box Score (at ARI)

Yes, the Mariners and D’Backs battled to a draw at Salt River Field. Being a baseball fan, and not so much a soccer fan, I’m against ties. But in this case, I’m willing to accept it. The Mariners have played enough baseball for the day. Lloyd McClendon certainly thought so. He signaled over to Kirk Gibson after Dominic Leone retired the side that was enough.

The Mariners were out of pitching.  And really, what’s the point? So the Mariners went 0-1-1 today and fall to 10-4-1 in the Cactus League Cup (staying with the soccer talk).

James Paxton didn’t have his best stuff, but gave the Mariners four innings. McClendon would’ve liked to see him more efficient. At the rate of pitches, Paxton wouldn’t have made it out of the sixth in the regular season.

Stefen Romero and Brad Miller had two hits each.

Leone was impressive in his two innings of work. He didn’t allow a hit and struck out two. We were sitting down at field level for the ninth and he was pumping in fastballs that had to be in the upper 90s. Hitters were so late on him. It was impressive.

No video highlights from the game unfortunately.
