Washburn pitches 8 scoreless innings in Mariners win

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS - Jarrod Washburn pitched eight scoreless innings and Brandon Morrow came in for the save as the Mariners beat the Twins 2-0 and split a four-game series at Minnesota.

Washburn gave up five hits, struck out four and had one walk for his first win since July. Morrow had two strikeouts in picking up his first save after blowing an opportunity in Tuesday's game.

Seattle scored on RBI singles from Adrian Beltre in the first inning and Rob Johnson in the ninth.

The road trip continues tomorrow at Oakland with a three-game series this weekend. Then the Ms head for Seattle for the home opener Tuesday against the Angels.
