MARINERS 2, REDS 6
The Reds scored 3 times in the 5th thanks to back-to-back homers from Chris Heisey (pinch hit HR) and Drew Stubbs (inside-the-park HR)…Stubbs went 3-for-3. Cincinnati scored 3 more in the 6th on home runs by Scott Rolen and Laynce Nix. Aaron Harang gave up 1 run on 6 hits over 5.0 innings to notch his first victory of the spring. Mariners starter Doug Fister’s night ended prematurely when he was hit on the shoulder by a batted ball in the first inning. Milton Bradley was ejected was in the 4th inning for arguing balls and strikes. The game ended when Jack Wilson was doubled up off first base on a fly ball to left. Wilson appeared to have thought there were 2 outs when there was only 1.
