Late-Afternoon Games

Mariners 16, Reds 0 Box »

On a day the Seattle offense went well past double-digits in runs, it was perhaps Brandon Maurer's star that shined brightest. The 22-year-old right-hander struck out seven and scattered six hits and a walk over five innings in the shutout. The Mariners' No. 10 prospect, who is battling for a spot in the Major League rotation, lowered his spring ERA to 0.90 in six appearances (three starts).
