Giants v. Mariners 2011 Spring Training Scores: Giants Lose 1-0 to Mariners Thanks to Stagnent Offense

Today was one of the worst days for the Giants offense thus far in their Spring Training schedule as they produced only four hits, losing to the Seattle Mariners 1-0.

Ryan Vogelsong had himself a decent day on the mound, going 3 2/3 innings allowing two hits, one earned run, three walks, and five strikeouts. Vogelsong did well to allowing only the one run against the Mariners (his first of the preseason), but would have liked to see a few less walks in his outing. Dan Runzler went 2 1/3 innings with only one walk and one strikeout, while Guillermo Mota went 2 full innings allowing one hit and one stikreout.

The Giants had their opportunities to do some damage with their lumber, stranding Aubrey Huff (1-3 single) in the first, Darren Ford was caught stealing in the fourth, and left the bases loaded in the 7th. Besides Huff’s single the only other hits for the Giants were a double by Nate Schierholtz and a pair of singles from Mike Fontenot and Darren Ford.

The Mariners used seven pitchers against San Francisco today and used them well, led by starter Jason Vargas who went three full innings allowing two hits, one walk, and one strikeout. The sole run of the game came off of a Ryan Langerhans triple in the forth that scored Justin Smoak.

The Giants will face the Chicago White Sox for the first time this Spring Training at Scottsdale Stadium tomorrow. It will be a matchup of former Cy Young Award winners as Barry Zito will get the start for the Giants while former Padres great Jake Peavy will start for the White Sox. First pitch is scheduled for 12:05 PT (1:05 MT) and will not be broadcast anywhere except mlb.com (paid subscribers only).
