Mariners Spring Training Update – Day 40

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

MARINERS AT INDIANS RECAP

Game RecapThe Mariners had their 5-game winning streak snapped in a 4-1 loss to the Cleveland Indians in front of 5,382 fans on Tuesday night at Goodyear Ballpark. Taijuan Walker allowed 3 runs on 6 hits over 5.0 innings and took the loss to fall to 1-3 this spring.

The Mariners trailed Cleveland 3-0 after three innings. The Indians got on the board in the bottom of the first on a Yan Gomes sacrifice fly. Gomes connected for a two-home run in the bottom of the third to extend Cleveland’s lead to 3-0.

Seattle and Cleveland traded zeroes on the scoreboard until the bottom of the eighth when the Indians added a run on a sacrifice fly to center field.

The Mariners scored their lone run of the ballgame when Zach Shank led off the top of the ninth with an infield single and scored on Daniel Robertson’s two-out single up the middle. Robertson now has 11 RBI in Cactus League action, 4th-best on the club.

Norichika Aoki went 1-for-3 and has now hit safely in 11 of his last 13 games since March 10. Aoki is batting .333 (14×42) with 9 runs scored, 2 doubles, 1 RBI and 3 walks during that stretch.

Making his 6th start of the spring, Walker allowed at least one baserunner in each of the first four innings, but limited the damage to just 3 runs. Walker retired seven of the last nine batters he faced. Mayckol Guaipe (6th) and Mike Montgomery (7th) each pitched 1.0 scoreless inning in relief.

SUPERHERO DAY AT MARINERS CAMP

20160329_144021_resized

Today turned out to be Superhero day at Mariners camp, as Nelson Cruz and Robinson Canó brought in T-shirts for the entire team. With so many superheroes, not everybody knew which superhero they were representing. Leonys Martin had never heard of Deadpool. Below are a few close-ups from today’s fun.

 

DO YOU REMEMBER THE NUMBER?

Now that you’ve checked out the Mariners commercials for this season, I hope you remember the phone number for Nellie’s Auto Glass. Unfortunately for windshields everywhere, Nelson Cruz isn’t the only player who can hit the ball a long ways. Today, Adam Lind found his target. What’s that number again?

DID YOU FORGET SOMETHING?

Shannon Jersey

It happens every year…someone heads to the game and forgets their jersey. So what happens when you forget your game jersey? Someone has to come to the rescue…and today it was Shannon Drayer.

DANNY, DAVE AND MOORE DAY 2

710 ESPN Seattle’s Danny O’Neil, Dave Wyman and Jim Moore continued their week in Mariners camp today and today they checked in with closer Steve Cishek, outfielder Leonys Martin and General Manager Jerry Dipoto. Be sure to check out the podcasts of the interviews on 710sports.com.

MARINERS AT CUBS RECAP

Cubs SignRobinson Canó went 4-for-4 with 4 runs scored, 3 home runs, 7 RBI and 1 walk as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Chicago Cubs, 12-9, before a crowd of 15,438 on Sunday afternoon at Sloan Park. James Paxton picked up the win to improve to 2-1 this spring.

Canó extended his hitting streak to seven games and is now batting .478 (11×23) with 6 runs scored, 2 doubles, 1 triple, 4 home runs and 11 RBI during the streak.

For the 6th consecutive game, the Mariners scored in the first inning. After Ketel Marte singled to right field with one out, Canó belted a no-doubt home run to right field to give the Mariners a 2-0 lead. In the bottom of the first, Chicago cut the Mariners lead in half on Dexter Fowler’s solo home run to right field.

Seattle erupted to score 5 runs with two outs in the top of the second. Dae-Ho Lee singled before Luis Sardiñas and Norichika Aoki drew back-to-back walks. Marte drove in a pair of runs with a double, and Canó drilled a three-run home run to left field to extend the Mariners advantage to 7-1.

The Cubs got five runs back in the bottom of the third on a two-run home run from Jason Heyward and a three-run homer off the bat of Addison Russell. Chicago evened the score at 7-7 in the bottom of the fourth on a Kris Bryant RBI single.

Seattle regained the lead, 9-7, in the top of the fifth as Seth Smith lined a two-run double down the right-field line, extending his hitting streak to 7 games. The Mariners added a run in the top of the sixth on a run-scoring single from Adam Lind.

Canó capped a stellar day at the plate with a two-run home run – his third of the game and sixth of the spring – to center field in the top of the eighth, extending the Mariners lead to 12-7.

The Cubs plated a run in the eighth and a run in the ninth for the final tally of 12-9 in favor of Seattle.

In his 5th start in Cactus League play, Paxton went 4.0 innings, allowing 7 runs on 9 hits while walking 3. Donn Roach worked 2.0 scoreless innings and struck out 2. Joel Peralta tossed a 1-2-3 bottom of the seventh, striking out 2.

Marte went 2-for-4 with 3 runs scored, 1 double, 2 RBI and 1 walk to extend his hitting streak to 6 games. Marte has now scored at least two runs in each of his last four games.

HOW MANY HOME RUNS?

If you watched the Mariners game on MLB.tv, or read the above recap, you know that Robinson Cano hit three home runs today. During the regular season, a Mariners player has hit at least three home runs in a game 12 times, including Mike Cameron’s MLB record-tying four-homer game in 2002.

3 homers

 

ROWLAND-SMITH & GOLD-SMITH

RRS

Former Mariners left-hander Ryan Rowland-Smith joined Aaron Goldsmith on the radio broadcast this afternoon. Ryan will be with the broadcast crew for the next four days adding some color commentary to the game on the radio. Ryan was signed as an amateur free agent out of Australia in 2000 and pitched in four seasons with the Mariners (2007-10) and has his best season in 2008 when he was 5-3 with a 3.42 ERA in 118.1 innings in 47 games including 12 starts.

 

BEES!…OR INSECTS.

During the Mariners game against the Cubs today, there was a delay in the early part of the game. With Seattle batting, the game came to a halt when Cubs center fielder Jason Heyward began jogging away from his position, trying to swat the insects (or bees) away from him. Eventually the game resumed…let’s hope they don’t return.

 

ROSTER MOVES

Dipoto on Roster Moves

The Mariners made a series of roster moves today as the club trims its roster as it works towards getting down to the Opening Day 25-man roster. Below are today’s transactions.

MARINERS VS. DODGERS RECAP

Kyle Seager went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a triple and 2 runs batted in, Seth Smith was 2-for-3 with a solo homer and Ketel Marte was 2-for-3 with a double, an inside-the-park home run and 2 runs scored as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-6 in front of 10,644 fans at Peoria Stadium in Cactus League play Saturday.

Wade Miley started and worked 6.0 innings. He allowed two runs on four hits in the first inning, but settled in to limit the Dodgers to just one run on four hits over the next five innings, and left with a 4-3 lead. Tony Zych allowed a solo homer in his inning of work, but was credited with the win (1-0) when Seattle scored in the 7th. Mike Montgomery worked a 1-2-3 8th inning, and Steve Cishek battled his way to a save (#1), allowing two runs but stranding the go-ahead run on base in the 9th.

Seattle scored a pair of runs in the first, as Marte led off the game with a double and Seager followed with a triple. Seager scored on a Smith RBI single.

The Mariners added single runs in the fifth (Marte’s inside-the-park homer) and sixth (Smith solo homer, a blast to the berm in right field). The team tacked on a pair of runs in the seventh to take a 6-4 lead, as Seager’s two-RBI double scored pinch-runner Daniel Robertson and Tyler Smith, who had singled. Seattle closed out the scoring with an un-earned run in the eighth inning, then survived a pair Dodgers runs in the ninth.

The Mariners (13-12-2) return to Cactus League play tomorrow (Sunday, March 27) at 1:05 pm as they visit the Chicago Cubs at Sloan Park in Mesa. Left-hander James Paxton is scheduled to face Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel. The game will be broadcast in the Seattle area on 710 ESPN Seattle and the Mariners Radio Network.

MARINERS AT ROCKIES RECAP

High Fives

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The Mariners teamed for 10 runs on 18 hits – a team-best this spring – in a 10-8 victory over Colorado in front of a crowd of 11,365 at Salt River Field at Talking Stick.

In his 5th start of the spring, Taijuan Walker tossed 3.2 innings, allowing 6 runs on 9 hits with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts. Walker earned the win and is now 1-2 this spring. Donn Roach tossed 2.1 scoreless innings in relief, his 4th consecutive scoreless outing – all of which have been at least 2.0 innings.

Seth Smith was 2-for-4 with 1 run scored, 2 doubles and 3 RBI. Smith has now hit safely in 5 straight games, batting .571 (8×14) with 2 runs scored, 2 doubles, 2 triples and 6 RBI during the streak. Shawn O’Malley finished 1-for-3 with 2 runs scored, 1 double and 1 RBI. O’Malley has now scored 15 runs this spring, tops in MLB.

The Mariners took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first after O’Malley walked and scored on Nelson Cruz’s single to right field. Back-to-back doubles from Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story in the bottom of the first quickly evened the score at 1-1. Colorado took a 2-1 lead on Carlos Gonzalez’s double to right-center field, the Rockies third straight double to begin the inning. Two outs later, Gonzalez scored on DJ LeMahieu’s single to make it 3-1 in favor of Colorado at the end of one frame.

Seattle responded with 3 runs in the top of the second, reclaiming the lead, 4-3. Stefen Romero started the inning with a single and later scored on an error, one of three Colorado errors in the inning. Smith continued his hot hitting with a ringing double off the wall in center field to score Dae-Ho Lee and Chris Taylor.

Colorado tied the score at 4-4 in the bottom of the second as Dustin Garneau led off with a double and came around to score on a single from Blackmon.

Daniel Robertson hit his team-leading 3rd triple of the spring to plate Chris Taylor in the top of the fourth and once again put the Mariners in front, 5-4. O’Malley and Smith followed with back-to-back doubles to extend the lead to 7-4. Steve Clevenger capped the scoring in the inning at 8-4 with a two-out, run-scoring single.

Garneau and Blackmon scored on a two-run double from Gonzalez in the bottom of the fourth to bring the Rockies within two runs of the Mariners, 8-6.

The Mariners tacked on 2 insurance runs in the top of the eighth, keyed by a double off the bat of Efren Navarro and a triple from Austin Wilson. The Rockies scored twice in the bottom of the ninth, but the Mariners lead held at 10-8.

DAE-HO LEE GRAIL

Holy Grail

Fans can be a little creative when it comes to supporting the Mariners. At the end of today’s game, two young men were spotted wearing custom made shirts supporting one of the newest Mariners, Dae-Ho Lee.  For those of you not familiar, the Holy Grail is a dish, plate, stone, or cup that is part of an important theme of Arthurian literature. According to legend, it has special powers, and is designed to provide happiness, eternal youth and food in infinite abundance. Let’s hope that Dae-Ho Lee can help provide happiness during the 2016 season.

Mariners Spring Training Update – Day 33

Tuesday, March 22, 2016 / 13 Days ’til Opening Day (April 4 at Texas Rangers)

OFF DAY!

Big day on the spring calendar.

Big day on the spring calendar.

Tuesday was the club’s first off day of the spring. For the pitchers and catchers, it was the first day off since Feb. 19; first day off since Feb. 25 for the balance of the staff. (Scott Servais and the coaching staff was in a few days before the pitchers).

Nearly everyone took the day off. The exceptions? James Paxton (see below) was the lucky winner of the annual “who is scheduled to throw on the off day” lottery, so he came in. With Paxton pitching in a AAA game, Scott Servais and Mel Stottlemyre were in the house, as well.

James Paxton vs. the Knights

20160322_125001James Paxton was the starting pitcher for the AAA squad today, as Tacoma hosted the White Sox AAA affiliate, the Charlotte Knights. Coincidentally, the Langley Blaze from Langley, BC, were also playing a game on the practice fields today (against Seattle’s Rookie League team). Paxton pitching and a number of Canadian fans around led to a slightly larger than usual crowd on Field #1. Paxton worked 5.0 innings, allowing just a pair of solo homers (it’s fair to say the wind was blowing out). He allowed just 4 hits, walked 1 and struck out 8.

Good Support
An interesting addition to the crowd of Langley Blaze supporters was Robinson Cano who also came in on his off day to support some of the young players in games today.

In the first matchup between Japanese countrymen Hisashi Iwakuma and Kenta Maeda, the two starting pitchers dueled into the fifth inning, but it ultimately came down to a battle of the bullpens with the Mariners prevailing over the Dodgers, 6-3, at Camelback Ranch.

Making his 4th start of the spring, Iwakuma allowed 3 runs on 8 hits while walking 1 and striking out 3 in 4.1 innings pitched. Mike Montgomery (0.2 IP), Tony Zych (1.0 IP) and Donn Roach (3.0 IP) combined to hold the Dodgers scoreless in relief. Montgomery earned the win in relief to improve to 1-0.

The Mariners quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first as the first three batters recorded base hits. Ketel Marte led off the game with a double to right field, followed by a Luis Sardiñas single to left. Robinson Canó then drove in both Marte and Sardinas with a two-run single.

Los Angeles got a run back in the bottom of the inning on a solo home run from Justin Turner. Turner accounted for all three of the Dodgers runs, driving in Yasiel Puig on a double in the bottom of the third to tie the score at 2-2 and giving Los Angeles a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the fifth on another double.

Montgomery entered the game in the bottom of the fifth with a runner on second and one out. After yielding a walk to the first batter he faced, Montgomery came back with a fly ball and a strikeout to end the inning.

The Mariners connected for back-to-back home runs in the top of the sixth to take a 6-3 lead over Los Angeles. With Marte and Sardiñas aboard, Nelson Cruz belted his second home run of the spring into the Dodgers left field bullpen. Adam Lind promptly followed with his second home run in Cactus League action to cap the Mariners scoring in the inning.

Zych struck out 2 of the 3 batters he faced in the sixth inning, his 4th consecutive outing with multiple strikeouts and 5th overall this spring. Roach tossed 3.0 scoreless innings with 3 strikeouts to earn his first save of the spring. In his last 3 outings, Roach has posted 8.0 scoreless innings with 12 strikeouts.

The Mariners (10-11-2) have their first off day of the Cactus League schedule tomorrow. Left-hander James Paxton is slated to start in a minor league game tomorrow at 1:00 pm. Seattle returns to play Wednesday, March 23 at 7:10 pm against the Oakland Athletics at Peoria Stadium. Right-hander Nathan Karns is scheduled to face Athletics right-hander Jesse Hahn. The game will be broadcast in the Seattle area on 710 ESPN Seattle and the Mariners Radio Network, and televised on ROOT Sports.

Doesn’t it bother you when you’re trying to work and someone is in your office chatting? It doesn’t bother us and it definitely doesn’t bother us when the people talking are Ken Griffey Jr., Rick Rizzs and team photographer Ben Van Houten. There were plenty of stories and laughs as the conversation topics included kids, diets, photography, youth athletics, flying and much more.

 

ROOMMATES REUNITED
