Giants Spring Training: Brian Wilson Makes Spring Debut In 7-5 Victory Over Mariners

The San Francisco Giants are slowly but surely getting healthier with every passing day under the Arizona sun, with closer Brian Wilson making his first appearance of the spring in Sunday's 7-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners after taking it easy on his nagging throwing elbow.

Wilson needed only six pitches to get himself out of his inning of work, forcing a Justin Smoak ground out on the first pitch then a Carlos Peguero poked an opposite-field single to left. Wilson and Buster Posey would end up finishing off the inning with a strike-'em-out, throw-'em-out double play on a Vinnie Catricala strike out.

Melky Cabrera kept up his impressive spring, finishing 2-3 with two RBI, while Hector Sanchez launched his second homer of the spring in the sixth inning, finishing 2-2 with 3 RBI and two runs scored.

Next the Black and Orange head to Surprise, AZ to take on the Kansas City Royals at Surprise Stadium. First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. on Monday with Tim Lincecum set to take the mound against Luke Hochevar.
