We could give you a few sentences about how good Taijuan Walker has been this spring for the Mariners, but let the above ESPN graphic do the talking.

Where’s All The Stuff?:

The equipment truck left at noon today and is now on its way to Seattle to get everything ready for Opening Day.

Now that the equipment truck has left, a lot of the areas in the Mariners complex are pretty bare. Most of the bats, uniforms, medical equipment, office supplies, golf clubs, luggage…anything you can think of is now on its way to Seattle. Just another sign that the season is just around the corner.

Mariners rookie left-hander Tyler Olson put together a solid spring, making 10 appearances and not allowing an earned run in 12.2 innings while striking out 15 batters. He was honored prior to the game as the Peoria Sports Complex Rookie of the Year. The Gonzaga product has put himself in good position to make the Mariners Opening Day roster.

Mariners Spring Training Update – Day 39

Monday, March 30, 2015 / 7 Days ‘til Opening Day (April 6 vs. LA Angels)

Game Recap:
Mike Zunino went 2-for-3 with 3 RBI and hit his 7th home run and Taijuan Walker allowed one run over 7.0 innings to lead the Mariners to a 5-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels Monday afternoon in Cactus League play at Peoria Stadium.

Walker (3-0) continued his dominating spring allowing just a Matt Joyce solo home run in his 7.0-inning start, the longest by a Mariners pitcher this spring. Walker struck out 5 and did not walk a batter in his sixth Cactus League start. The right-hander has allowed just 9 hits and one run in 25.0 innings this spring (0.36 ERA), with 24 strikeouts. Dominic Leone notched the save recording the final two outs after the Angels scored a pair of 9th-inning runs.

Trailing 1-0, the Mariners gained the lead with three runs in the bottom of the 4th inning. Consecutive singles by Robinson Canó, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager (RBI) tied the game. Zunino followed with a 2-run double to left to give Seattle the lead for good.

Zunino hit his team-leading 7th home run to lead off the 7th inning, the second-most homers in spring training play behind Kris Bryant (9). Canó added to the lead with his first spring homer in the bottom of the 8th inning. In 15 spring games Canó is batting .364 (16×44). Cruz added a pair of hits as the Mariners out-hit the Angels 9-6.

Joyce gave the Angels the early 1-0 lead with a solo home run to open the 2nd inning. After the homer and a pair of singles, Walker settled down and retired the final 17 batters he faced in his outing.

Game Highlights:

He Is STRONG:
Everybody knows that catcher Mike Zunino is strong, but if his spring homers are any indication, he’s going to have a big year in the power department. He not only had a double and a home run in today’s game, he upped his team lead with his 7th home run of the spring.  Zunino ranks 2nd in the Cactus League (and all of spring training) with 7 home runs and trails only Kris Bryant (9) of the Cubs. His 7 home runs are not only 2nd-most in spring training play, but also 2 off Mariners spring club record of 9 set by Michael Morse in 2013. Russell Branyan (2009) and Kendrys Morales (2013) hit 7 Cactus League homers, & Mike Wilson hit 8 spring home runs in 2009.

Not Bad, Kid:

Taijuan Walker wasn’t untouchable this spring, but he came pretty darn close. Having entered the game not allowing a run in 18.0 innings this spring, he fired an efficient 7.0 innings of one run ball with only 72 pitches. When you add up the numbers, that’s an 0.36 ERA (1 ER, 25.0 IP).

Felix Hernandez In High Demand With Venezuelan Media:

When you’re Felix Hernandez, you not only pitch the team to victories on the field, you also make times for media and fans in Seattle and other parts of the world. Felix has been popular with Venezuelan media this spring (obviously) and he makes sure to make time to them and by extension, his following in Venezuela. Today, Deportes Union Radio spent some time with the King.

Is Too Much Sun A Bad Thing?:
It’s hard to complain when the sun is out down here…but at what point is it too hot? The game time temperature today was 91 degrees. If you’re not sure if that’s too hot, ask Nelson Cruz.
