Photos: Mariners sail to spring-training win over Brewers
The Seattle Mariners sailed to a win against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday as spring training made a brief return to Tucson.
Mariner's ace Felix Hernandez, pitching strike after strike, held Milwaukee to one hit in six scoreless innings in the game at Kino Sports Complex. Seattle won 6-1.
A little over 7,000 people turned out to enjoy the weather, get baseballs autographed, and watch big leaguers at work in the split-squad game.
Although a cold snap is expected Sunday, but despite a rainy forecast, the Tucson Padres organization is preparing for Sunday's Padres/Rockies matchup. The team said on Facebook that the infield will be tarped overnight Saturday.
"If there is a break in the weather we will take it off and get the field ready. All we can say now is we will make every effort to play the game," a post said.
