Figgins has banner day in win over Rockies

Mariners rally with three straight singles in bottom of ninth

By Greg Johns /

PEORIA, Ariz. — Three straight singles off of Colorado Rockies’ reliever Matt Belisle in the bottom of the ninth — with an error mixed in for good measure — produced a 7-6 comeback win for the Seattle Mariners in their penultimate Cactus League game Monday.

Leading off the inning, Justin Smoak singled to left. That was followed by a sharp single to right by Michael Saunders, which was misplayed by right-fielder Bronson Sardinha. The error allowed Smoak to score all the way from first and Saunders to reach third. The next man up, Steven Baron, singled him home for the walk-off win.

Mariners’ third baseman Chone Figgins continued his torrid spring, extending his hitting streak to 12 games with a three-hit outing. Figgins went 3-for-3 with a double, stolen base and two runs, and raised his Cactus League average to .396. He’s hit .485 (16-for-33) in the last dozen games.
