Taking their fourth win in four days, the Seattle Mariners beat the Milwaukee Brewers. Prior to the game against Seattle, the Brewers had won 2-1 against the Oakland Athletics, and lost 7-4 against the Cleveland Indians, 5-2 against the Cincinnati Reds, and 7-1 against the San Diego Padres.

The Brewers were the first to get on the board in the bottom of the second when Alex Gonzalez hit a double to bring Jonathan Lucroy home. Jean Segura then hit a double, bringing Gonzales home giving Milwaukee a 2-0 advantage.

The Brewers weren’t up for long, however, because in the very next inning, Franklin Gutierrez hit a long fly ball to center field, bringing both himself and Vinnie Catricala home. Michael Saunders liked what he saw and hit a high long one out to right field. The Mariners led 3-2. The Brewers tied the game up, though when Norichika Aoki scored following a double play. Then, in the bottom of the fourth, Caleb Gindl scored following some messy handling of a stolen base. The score was 4-3, Brewers advantage.

Niether team scored again until the top of the eighth when Carlos Peguero hit a double to bring Eric Thames home. Then, Justin Smoak hit a home run out to center field. This brought Peguero home as well. The score was then 6-4 until Blake Lalli hit a home run out to right field, bringing the two teams to their final score of 6-5 as neither team scored in the 9th.

The Mariners are on a roll in Spring Training. Who do you think will become a vital part of the 2013 season roster?
