Cano leads Mariners over D-backs

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Robinson Cano got two more hits and drove in two runs Thursday to help the Seattle Mariners top the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-3.

Cano is 14 for 23 with six RBI in nine spring training games. The Mariners newcomer has a six-game hitting streak.

“He knows how to get ready and he’s been going at it very well,” Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. “He’s working extremely hard and bringing other guys with him. So I’ve been very impressed with how he goes about his business.”

Cano’s latest RBI came against Arizona starter Archie Bradley, widely regarded as the organization’s top overall prospect.

Bradley had allowed just three hits without a run in 61/3 previous innings this spring, but he only got through two innings against the Mariners. He allowed four runs on five hits with two walks.

Bradley said he felt as if he’d thrown “a ton” of pitches.

“Anytime you have to work behind in the count, it’s never good, and I just couldn’t get that first pitch over and it seemed like every batter, I was working from behind,” Bradley said.

Logan Morrison hit a solo home run and Dustin Ackley singled and scored twice for the Mariners, whose 13 wins are the most in spring training among all teams.

Starter Blake Beavan held the Diamondbacks to a run on five hits over 42/3 innings, striking out four.

Seattle center fielder Endy Chavez reached base three times, scored twice and drove in a run. He also stole a base.

Arizona’s Eric Chavez doubled and scored.
