The Mariners lost a barnburner on Tuesday, falling to the Colorado Rockies by a score of 9-8.

The Mariners lost a barnburner on Tuesday, falling to the Colorado Rockies by a score of 9-8. The M's had an uncharacteristic but encouraging 16 hits and scored the bulk of their runs in the 5th and 6th innings, taking a 8-5 lead into the bottom of the 6th. The Rockies charged back though with a four-run inning that score held for the rest of the outing.

Manager Eric Wedge was pleased with the team's offensive output.

"It's been a very good offensive spring for us,'' he said. "It's a big step for us in the right direction. There's a lot of things going on for us offensively that are real, and it should play for us during the season."

The M's were led by SS Munenori Kawasaki (2 for 4, 1 RBI) and 2B/3B Kyle Seager (2 for 5, 2 runs) and Carlos Peguero, who went 3 for 4 with a two-run homer and three runs batted in. It was Peguero's fifth homer in Spring Training.

Starting Pitcher Erasmo Ramirez gave up two runs and four hits in three innings for Seattle. Boxscore here.
