MARINERS END SPRING TRAINING WITH 2-1 LOSS AT COLORADO

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The Seattle Mariners closed out spring training play with a 2-1 loss against the Colorado Rockies Saturday afternoon at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

Seattle finished Cactus League play with a 18-12-3 record and opens the 2014 season Monday at the Los Angeles Angels.

Mariners starting pitcher Chris Young fired 4.2 scoreless innings, allowing 4 hits and strikeout out 2 while throwing 63 pitches (44 strikes). Left-handed reliever Joe Beimel (0-1) was saddled with the loss allowing one run in his only inning of work.

The Mariners jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on a single by Kyle Seager in the top of the 2nd inning. A pair of leadoff walks to Justin Smoak and Stefen Romero set up the run-scoring single by Seager.

Colorado tied the game in the bottom of the 6th inning on a single by minor league infielder Cesar Galvez. A two-out RBI single by Brandon Barnes in the bottom of the 7th inning scored Drew Stubbs with the go-ahead run.

The Mariners open the 2014 season Monday night (7:05 pm) vs. the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim. RHP Felix Hernandez will make his 7th career Opening Day start against Angels right-hander Jered Weaver.
