In the second inning, J.D. Martinez grounded out to second and Justin Upton flew out to center before Nicholas Castellano doubled to left field. He was stranded when Alex Presley ended the threat by lining out to center. In the third, John Hicks struck out swinging and Jose Iglesias lined out to center before Kinsler homered to left field. Avila then flew out to center. In the fourth, Cabrera led off with a single to center before Martinez struck out swinging and Upton grounded into a 6-4-3 double play. In the fifth, Castellanos led off with a single to left and after Presley popped out to shortstop moved to third on Hicks' double to left. Iglesias's groundout to second scored Castellanos and advanced Hicks to third, allowing him to score on Kinsler's single to center. Although Kinsler then stole second, he was stranded when Avila popped out to second base to end the inning. Moore retired the last six batters he faced as Cabrera lined out to center, Martinez flew out to right and Upton popped out to shortstop in the sixth and, in the seventh, Castellanos flew out to center, Andrew Romine struck out swinging, and Hicks flew out to left.|
|The Oregon State product checked in as the #12 prospect in 2080 Baseball's Mariners Org. Review for 2017 thanks to his outstanding control which makes up for his average four-pitch mix. Though he doesn't have a blazing fastball or a real "out pitch," he has command of all four pitches delivered with some deception, to go along with the smarts to utilize the arsenal effectively. In 2016, he combined between a hot start at Bakersfield (High A) and Jackson (Double-A) to go 12-4 with a 2.65 ERA in 28 starts, striking out 133 and walking just 31 in 163 innings, allowing 148 hits. He'd been 3-1 with a 1.65 ERA in nine starts at Bakersfield before the promotion, limiting opposing batters in the hitter-friendly Cal League to a tidy .188 BAA.|
