• The Mariners set a team record by winning their ninth straight Spring Training game Monday. Seattle's previous best in any single spring was an eight-game streak at the end of the 1993 campaign. Seattle also won six straight to open up '94, giving them 14 straight spread over two seasons. The '93 squad went 82-80 while the '94 team finished 49-63.
"We've got a good group of guys. They do a good job of taking care of each other," Wedge said. "It's been a good working camp and guys are getting better."
• Monday's game against the Rockies will be the first of six games televised this spring for the Mariners. After Monday, the next televised game will be on March 17.
• Jon Garland will start for the Mariners on Monday, and he'll be followed by a trio of intriguing arms: Starting prospects Danny Hultzen and Taijuan Walker and closer Tom Wilhelmsen.
• The Mariners hit their 21st and 22nd home run of the spring Sunday, a total that leads all big league teams. Kendrys Morales hit the first homer, a two-run shot to straightaway center field at Surprise Stadium. Jesus Montero followed, driving a two-run blast off Russ Grimm in the third inning.
