TEMPE, Ariz. – Dario Pizzano hit his first home run of the spring to give Seattle a 4-3 lead in the top of the 9th, but Los Angeles rallied for an equalizing run in the bottom of the inning as the Mariners and Angels played to a 4-4 tie at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

Seattle got on the board in the top of the first to take a 1-0 lead. Stefen Romero and Kyle Seager hit back-to-back singles with two outs. Romero then scored on Dae-Ho Lee‘s single to left field, the Mariners third consecutive two-out hit of the inning.

The Angels answered back with a run in the bottom of the first to tie the score at 1-1. Yunel Escobar led off with a double and scored on Daniel Nava’s double. Los Angeles took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the third. Mike Trout started the inning with a double and later scored on a single from Kole Calhoun.

The Mariners struck again with two outs in the fourth to plate two runs for a 3-2 advantage. Lee led off the inning with a double and Mike Zunino reached on an error. Daniel Robertson delivered a two-out double down the right-field line to bring home Lee and Zunino.

Los Angeles evened the score at 3-3 in the bottom of the fourth. Jett Bandy drew a one-out walk and took second base on a wild pitch. Nava brought home Bandy on a single to right field.

After Pizzano’s home run gave the Mariners the 4-3 lead in the top of the 9th, the Angels tied the game in the bottom of the inning. Craig Gentry tripled down the right-field line to begin the inning. With one out, Geovanny Soto lifted a sacrifice fly to left field to score Gentry.

Cody Martin made his first start of the spring for Seattle and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits while walking 1 and striking out 2 in 3.0 innings. Reliever Justin De Fratus gave up 1 run in 2.0 innings. Donn Roach tossed 3.0 scoreless innings in relief, striking out 6. Jonathan Aro allowed 1 run on 1 hit in the bottom of the 9th.

THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW

Baseball’s a funny game. It doesn’t matter how many games you watch, there will be things that still catch you by surprise. We could write about what happened on the play, but it’s best if you just watch it.

 

WHO WE ARE

Shannon & Guti

As part of 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Who We Are” series, Shannon Drayer sat down with Mariners fan favorite Franklin Gutierrez for an in-depth interview to discuss what he values in his life, in the clubhouse and what drives him. Shannon will check in with various players and coaches over the coming weeks and the features will be used on various formats including the radio, their website and on other social media accounts.

 

FORMER MARINERS LEFTY RETIRES

Some of you may remember left-hander Rob Rasmussen, who spent the second half of the season with the Mariners…today, he decided to walk away from the game and focus on his education. He’s one class short of completing his bachelors and will then work on his Masters of Business Administration. If you’d like to read more about his decision, MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez has more details: Rasmussen announces retirement from game

 

THE IDES OF MARCH

Idea of March Cesar Jimenez

Today is March 15, the Ides of March…Seattle has never had a player named Julius, Caesar, Brutas or Cassius…we did have Cesar Jimenez (lhp) and former minor league coach, Cal MicLish; his full name: Calvin Coolidge Julius Caesar Tuskahoma McLish.

 

PETE & BUBBA

Pete and Bubba

Mariners Spring Training Update – Day 17

Sunday, March 6, 2016 / 29 Days ’til Opening Day (April 4 at Texas Rangers)

MARINERS VS. RANGERS RECAP

The Mariners swiped six bases and tallied 14 hits en route to a 7-3 win over the Texas Rangers at Surprise Stadium in front of 6,649 in Cactus League play Sunday.

Seattle manufactured a run in the first inning to take a quick lead as Leonys Martin walked, stole second and came home on an RBI double by Seth Smith. The Mariners tacked on two more runs in the second, using three hits, three steals and a sacrifice bunt for the rally. Shawn O’Malley and Norichika Aoki collected the RBI, while Luis Sardiñas, O’Malley and Martin swiped bases in the inning.

Seattle added a pair of runs in the sixth inning, using a pair of stolen bases and four base hits to build its lead to 5-2. Chris Taylor and O’Malley each swiped bases, while Sardiñas, O’Malley and Martin collected hits in the inning.

For the game, Martin and O’Malley each stole a pair of bases while Sardiñas and Taylor snagged one each.

Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma (1-0) had a very efficient outing, retiring all six batters he faced on just 23 pitches (17 strikes). He allowed only one ball out of the infield, a harmless fly ball to center field to end the second inning, and threw first pitch strikes to all six batters he faced. Joaquin Benoit (1.0 IP, 1 H), Steve Cishek (1.0 IP, 1 H), Paul Fry (1.0 IP, 2 BB) and Blake Parker (1.0 IP, 1 H) all worked scoreless innings.

Seth Smith finished 2-for-3 with an RBI and Sardiñas was 2-for-3 with 2 runs scored. Sardiñas is now hitting .583 this spring.

JAMIE MOYER CHECKS IN WITH THE SEATTLE TIMES

As you all know, Mariners Hall of Famer Jamie Moyer has been in Mariners camp working with the pitchers. Today, Seattle Times Columnist Larry Stone checked in with him to catch up. Be sure to check out SeattleTimes.com on Monday to read all about it.

JAPAN & SOUTH KOREA WELL REPRESENTED IN TODAY’S GAME

Korean Dae-Ho Lee made his first start of the Spring for the Mariners today and Shin-Soo Choo was in the starting lineup for the Rangers. There have only been 17 Korean-born Major Leaguers and if Lee makes the 25-man roster and appears in a game, he’ll be just the third Korean-born player to appear in a game with the Mariners, joining Choo (2005) and right-hander Cha-Seung Baek (2004-08).

Also in the starting lineup for Seattle were leadoff man Norichika Aoki and on the mound was Hisashi Iwakuma. The Mariners obviously have a long history with players from Japan and these two players are adding to that legacy.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEONYS!

Happy birthday @leonys27martin ¡Feliz Cumpleaños Leonys!

A photo posted by Nelson Cruz (@ncboomstick23) on

Outfielder Leonys Martin is celebrating his 28th birthday today…former Mariners that share the same birthday include RHP Roger Salkeld & RHP Karl Best.

 

DAE-HO LEE CHANT

Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times found a fun video on YouTube about Korean first baseman Dae-Ho Lee, who is in camp as a non-roster invite. Lee was a prolific slugger who played in the Korean Baseball Organization before spending the last two seasons playing in Japan. He’s been a fan favorite everywhere he’s been and it is pretty evident if you watch the video above.
