Mariners 9, Padres 4: It's a Good Thing These Games Don't Mean Anything

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

The Padres have lost their first two spring training games to the Mariners, so you might as well jump off the bandwagon now. See you all at a Chargers game or something.

What's that? Spring training games are meaningless and you're still here? Well, then here are the highlights from this afternoon's ballgame. Wil Myers had his first hit in a Padre uniform, a line drive single to center field. Will Venable had a two-run homer off Charlie Furbush in the fifth inning. Taylor Lindsey, the key piece in last summer's Huston Street deal, hit his first bomb of the spring off Joe Saunders.

In lowlights, Padres pitching struggled today (in case you hadn't gathered that from the Mariners' 9 runs). Shaun Kelley took the biggest hit, allowing 4 runs in a third of an inning. That's not all on him, though. Endy Chavez reached base on an error by shortstop Ramiro Pena before coming home on Patrick Kivlehan's homer. Another unearned run would score when Austin Hedges tried to turn two and overthrew second base, where he was trying to catch our old friend John Baker.

Tomorrow afternoon, Odrisamer Despaigne takes the hill against the White Sox. First pitch is at 12:05 PM, and you can listen on ESPN 1700.
