An odd victory over Seattle, 7-5, yesterday, given they outhit us, 12-7. We did almost all our damage in a six-run 7th, highlighted by Sergio Santos's three-run shot. No-one managed more than a single hit.
Halsey did well, against what was pretty much Seattle's "A" lineup, allowing one run over five innings, on six hits, with four K's, throwing 51 strikes in 71 pitches. But Brandon Lyon's perfect spring came to an end with the 17th batter he faced, and he allowed a run over two innings. Tolar continued to impress, with 1 1/3 innings of shutout ball, though he gave up two hits, and Aquino looked very wild in his first game since March 3. He allowed a hits and three walks while retiring just two, and reached 94 mph on the radar.
It's a split-squad game today, half the team facing the Mariners again, this time in Tucson, while the others go up against San Diego in Yuma. Vazquez, Medders, Cormier, Bruney and Villarreal are slated to be in action.
