MARINERS 3, GIANTS 3
at Peoria, Ariz.
Thursday, March 13
Mariners at the plate:
Ichiro Suzuki ended his Spring Training hit drought with an infield single in the first inning. He entered the game 0-for-21 in Cactus League action, the longest hitless streak during Spring Training since going 0-for-12 during a three-game stretch in 2002. Hot-hitting Mike Morse had three hits, improving his Cactus League-leading batting average to .581, and infielder Miguel Cairo hit his first home run.
Giants at the plate:
Left fielder Fred Lewis singled twice and drove in a run. Former Mariners outfielder Randy Winn singled and scored a run. Shortstop Emmanuel Burriss tied the game at 3 in the seventh with a two-out double down the left-field line. Designated hitter Ray Durham contributed a single and double.
Mariners on the mound:
Left-handed starter Jarrod Washburn worked five innings for the first time this spring, holding the Giants to two runs (one earned) on six hits. He helped his own cause by guessing correctly twice on potential stolen bases, throwing behind the runners on first base. Right-hander Cha Seung Baek worked a scoreless inning of relief.
Giants on the mound:
Right-hander Kevin Correia, the projected No. 4 starter, was lifted after 2 2/3 innings. He surrendered seven hits and three runs, including a solo home run in the third inning. Lefty reliever Steve Kline worked a perfect inning of relief, striking out two of the three batters he faced.
Cactus League records:
Mariners 6-8-1, Giants 4-11-2.
Mariners up next:
A couple of left-handers attempting to earn spots on the Opening Day pitching staff are on the mound Friday when the Mariners face the Rockies in the third game of a three-game "homestand" at Peoria Stadium. Ryan Feierabend and Jake Woods follow right-hander Miguel Batista (0-1, 6.00) to the mound against the reigning National League champs. Both Feierabend (1.69 ERA) and Woods (3.00 ERA) have pitched well this spring.
Giants up next:
Left-hander Jonathan Sanchez (0-1, 9.00) makes his third start and fourth appearance of the spring Friday when the Giants host the Arizona Diamondbacks. He looked sharp in his last outing, not allowing an earned run in three innings against the Chicago White Sox last Saturday. He's working on a new delivery that quickens his windup. Brandon Webb (1-0, 6.00) starts for Arizona.
