The Mariners put all the crap behind them with a walk off win in their first spring contest against the San Diego Padres. White, Kelenic, Moore and Rodriquez all contributed with runs batted in. Hopefully come the regular season, J-Rod and Kelenic will be part of the 40 man roster.
Obviously it’s Spring Training and there isn’t a whole lot to play for when it comes to getting the best from opposing teams. It’s nice to get the win, but the Mariners committed three errors in the field which isn’t sustainable for winning ball games.
The pitching staff from the stat sheet seemed to pitch pretty well and I expect the Mariners arms with Paxton added to the rotation to be a pretty solid staff this year.
Looking forward to seeing how the rest of Spring Training plays out. There should be a pretty heated competition for the outfield spots with a wealth of prospects at that position. Go Mariners!
