Tuiasosopo hits three in win over White Sox

Posted: Updated:

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Matt Tuiasosopo had three hits, and Franklin Gutierrez and Chris Woodward each had a run-scoring sacrifice fly to lead a Seattle Mariners split squad to a 5-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Monday.

Paul Konerko and Alex Rios connected for their first home runs of spring training for Chicago, but the pair of solo shots weren't enough to overcome Seattle's 11 hits. Konerko's blast came off Mariners starter Ryan Rowland-Smith in the second inning.

Rios, making his first start in center field after being limited to designated hitter duty because of a sore shoulder, went deep in the fifth. It easily cleared the center field fence in one of the deepest parts of the stadium.

Gavin Floyd struck out three in two innings of work for Chicago.  

Brewers 6, Mariners (ss) 2

Prince Fielder knocked in a pair of runs and Corey Hart hit a solo homer to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-2 exhibition win Monday over a Seattle Mariners split squad.

The Brewers scored three times in the first inning off right-hander Doug Fister. Ryan Braun hit a run-scoring single and Fielder followed with an opposite-field double to left.

Hart hit his second home run of the spring in the fifth inning. 

Left-hander Manny Parra maintained a scoreless string by Brewers starters in their first five games (2-3). Milwaukee starters have pitched 11 innings, giving up six hits while walking three  and striking out six.

Right-hander Dave Bush, expected to be a key part of the rotation, gave up a run on four hits in 2 2/3 innings.

Catcher Adam Moore had three hits and drove in Seattle's first run in the sixth inning.
