Padres 9, Mariners 3
Padres top prospect Jedd Gyorko hit a grand slam off Hector Noesi in his first at-bat of the spring to lead San Diego past its co-tenant at the Peoria Sports Complex.
Gyorko also lined to center field and struck out after getting the start at second base, where he is battling Logan Forsythe for the Opening Day job. He batted .311 with 30 homers and 100 RBIs last season while playing second and third base at Double-A San Antonio and Triple-A Tucson.
Adys Portillo, the Padres' No. 6 prospect, allowed one run on two hits and a walk with one strikeout over two innings out of the bullpen.
Royals 5, Rangers 5
Indians 11, Reds 10
Reds No. 3 prospect Tony Cingrani got the start but was roughed up for three runs on three hits and a walk in one inning. Giovanni Soto fared no better for the Tribe, surrendering five runs on three hits and two walks while retiring only two batters. Gameday box score
Tigers 2, Braves 1
No. 16 prospect Jeff Kobernus delivered an RBI triple and scored a run for the Tigers, while No. 15 prospect Kenny Faulk struck out two in a spotless eighth inning to preserve a two-run lead.
