Viciedo, Gartrell Lift White Sox Over Mariners
PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Dayan Viciedo went 3-for-3 with a double and two runs scored, and a Chicago White Sox split squad beat the Seattle Mariners 11-7 on Sunday.
Viciedo was in the middle of a five-run first inning that featured non-roster invitee Stefan Gartrell’s grand slam off Mariners starter Andrew Carraway.
Seattle’s Michael Morse hit his third home run of the spring, a solo shot off White Sox starter Dylan Axelrod. That was the only hit and run allowed by the right-hander.
Axelrod, who pitched in 14 games and started seven last season, worked three innings for the win. He has allowed one earned run and three hits in eight innings over three outings this spring. Axelrod has walked none and struck out seven.
Mariners outfielders Jason Bay and Carlos Peguero both tripled off of Scott Snodgress in the fourth.
Chicago’s Brent Morel was 2-for-4 with a home run, and Gordon Beckham added a solo shot.
