Seattle Mariners 2014 Spring Training action began on Thursday (Feb. 27) against the San Diego Padres. The Mariners had Erasmo Ramirez take the mound first this spring and he pitched two strong inning to register the win. The 7-1 victory was the perfect way for quite a few new players to break in with the team down in Peoria.

Will M's Trade Nick Franklin, Brad Miller?

Ramirez did a great job keeping the ball on the ground and induced five ground ball outs in his two innings of work. Blake Beavan relieved him and pitched two good innings of his own, allowing one walk, one hit, and striking out one Padres hitter. The bullpen finished it off, allowing just two more hits in the final five innings of the game.

Robinson Cano got a nice hit in his first at-bat for the Mariners and walked in his second at-bat before getting replaced by Carlos Triunfel. Logan Morrison was 2-for-2 with an RBI as the designated hitter and had a very nice sacrifice fly to his credit. Dustin Ackley and Justin Smoak each had doubles to their credit and helped the team post 10 hits total on the day.

The next Seattle Mariners Spring Training game comes on Friday (Feb. 28) at 12:05 p.m. PT when the team takes on the Padres a second time.
