Mariners Spring Training Update – Day 28

Thursday, March 19, 2015 / 18 Days ‘til Opening Day (April 6 vs. LA Angels)

Game Recap
Starting pitcher Taijuan Walker recorded 4.0 scoreless innings, Kyle Seager went 3-for-3 and Robinson Canó hit a go-ahead 2-run double to highlight the Seattle Mariners 5-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians Thursday night in Cactus League action at Peoria Stadium.

The Mariners are 4-1-1 over the last 6 games to improve to 8-7-1 overall in spring training play.

Walker continued his spring dominance with 4.0 scoreless innings. The right-hander allowed 2 hits, walked a pair and struck out 5 Indians to keep his Cactus League ERA at 0.00 in 4 starts (12.0 IP). Left-hander David Rollins (1-0) earned the win allowing one run in his only inning of work.

The Mariners pounded out 15 hits in the win with Kyle Seager (3×3), Dustin Ackley (2×3, 2 RBI) and Austin Jackson (2×3) recording multi-hit games. 11 different Mariners recorded at least one hit, including 2014 first-round draft selection Alex Jackson (1×2, R).

The Mariners jumped out to the lead with a single tally in the bottom of the 2nd inning behind three consecutive singles by Seager, Logan Morrison and Ackley (RBI 1B).

With the game tied 1-1, Seattle rallied for three runs in the 5th inning to regain the lead. Canó drilled a 2-run double and Ackley drove home a run with an infield single.





Late Start Today
With the threat of rain this morning, we weren’t sure if workouts were going to take place as planned, but fortunately the sun made its way through the clouds and the day was able to proceed as scheduled. Since tonight’s game was a night game, some players arrived later in the day, a welcomed chance to sleep in during Spring Training. Hopefully they got enough sleep this morning because tonight’s game will be followed by a day game tomorrow.

Let’s Talk About College…Baseball
ESPN’s Christine Boggy, who covers the SEC and ACC, made a stop at Mariners camp to check in with those who played in those conferences. Brad Miller (Clemson), John Hicks (Virginia) and Dominic Leone (Clemson) offered their thoughts about their college experiences and how beneficial it was as they progressed to the professional ranks.

I would be watching but I am an Australian fan and it is only being shown in the Seattle market.
