Hernandez pitches 2 scoreless innings; Ms top Dodgers 4-1

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Felix Hernandez gave up two hits and struck out one over two scoreless innings in his first spring-training start as the Seattle Mariners beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 Tuesday.

The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner allowed a double off the left-center field wall by Yasiel Puig on his first pitch of the game and walked Carl Crawford. Hernandez then induced a 6-4-3 double play from Hanley Ramirez and struck out Andre Ethier.

Brian Wilson, whose 333 regular-season appearances have all come in relief, got the start because of Zack Greinke’s strained right calf. Wilson struck out one in a hitless inning.

Crawford, slowed by tightness in his right thigh, played left field for only the second time this spring training.

J.P. Howell allowed three runs and four hits in the third. Puig had an error in the inning, fielding Kyle Seager’s single to right and throwing wide of third as Brad Miller scored.
