LeBlanc pitches better, but still gets the loss against Mariners


Seattle Mariners 4 – San Diego Padres 1

W: Erik Bedard (2-0)
L: Wade LeBlanc (0-3)
S: Brandon League (1)

Wade LeBlanc has struggled pitching this spring and he has been competing to take the 5th spot in the rotation. Today, he pitched 6 innings and gave up 3 runs while striking out 5 in the game.

Brad Hawpe continued his strong spring hitting a homerun off of Erik Bedard in the 2nd inning. Chris Denorfia also continued his strong spring by adding a double and a single. The offense just was not able to put runs on the board going 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position. The only run was from the Hawpe bomb in the 2nd.
