March 6, 2011BOXSCORE GIANTSVIDEOMLBPAGE MLBSCOREBOARD
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Tim Lincecum struck out seven and worked out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the third inning to lead the San Francisco Giants to a 6-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.The two-time NL Cy Young Award-winner was one strike away from a rare four-strikeout inning in the fourth after allowing leadoff hitter Jack Cust to reach base on a wild pitch on the third strike. He fanned Seattle's Adam Kennedy and Milton Bradley to get out of the third-inning jam.Lincecum gave up three hits and walked three in 3 2-3 innings for the defending World Series champions. Closer Brian Wilson, who'd been out with a bad back, made his spring training debut and struck out two in one inning.Mariners starter Nate Robertson allowed four runs on four hits in his second spring training start.
At Scottsdale, Arizona, Chris Marrero hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth and drove in four runs as the Giants rallied after Madison Bumgarner gave up two runs on two hits in the top of the first.
Marrero, a 2006 first-round draft pick of the Nationals trying to revive his career as a non-roster invitee, had an RBI single in the fifth.
Kevin Shackelford, the seventh Cincinnati pitcher, walked Orlando Calixte to open the ninth and Christian Arroyo blooped a single into left field before Marrero hit a line drive over the wall in left centerfield.
Patrick Kivlehan had a two-run single off Bumgarner in the first and Hunter Pence doubled in a run off Reds starter Rookie Davis. Davis, acquired from the Yankees in the Aroldis Chapman deal, is likely to open with Double-A Pensacola this year.
VANCOUVER – Kevin Labanc, Barclay Goodrow and Tim Heed have accompanied the Sharks to Vancouver, and will presumably be available to play against the Canucks on Saturday in the first game after the bye week.
Forwards Timo Meier, Nikolay Goldobin and Marcus Sorensen, all of whom have played games with the NHL club this season, remain with the AHL Barracuda for the time being.
Labanc, 21, has 18 points (7g, 11a) in 45 games this season. Lately he has been skating as the left wing on the top line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski, and is looking to snap a 21-game goal drought.
Goodrow, 23, has played one game with the Sharks this season, going scoreless on Jan. 24 at Winnipeg. Unless the Sharks recall someone else before their game with the Canucks, Goodrow will likely play his second game as the team is carrying just 12 healthy forwards as of Friday afternoon. Joonas Donskoi did not accompany the Sharks to Vancouver, and remains day-to-day with what the club is offically calling an upper body injury but appears to be a right shoulder.
Heed, likely the seventh defenseman in case of emergency, has also played one scoreless game on Jan. 11 at Calgary.
Dylan DeMelo made the trip, but is still not ready. The defenseman told CSN last week that he’s on schedule with an eight-week recovery from a broken right wrist that would put his return around early March.
