PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) – Mark Reynolds homered for the second straight day, one of five Milwaukee Brewers to connect in a 9-7 victory Wednesday over the Seattle Mariners, who got Robinson Cano back after a five-day absence.
Cano left the team late last week to attend to personal business in the Dominican Republic, and went 1 for 4 with two RBIs. Cano has a hit in nine of 10 spring training games and is batting .556.
Starting pitcher Wily Peralta hit a two-run drive and Logan Schafer, Khris Davis and Juan Francisco also hit solo shots for Milwaukee. Reynolds and Francisco hit theirs back-to-back in the fourth inning against Mariners starter Blake Beavan.
Beavan and Peralta had their struggles on the mound. Beavan allowed seven runs on eight hits in 5 2-3 innings, his longest and least effective outing of spring training. Peralta gave up five runs on eight hits in his fourth spring training start, working six innings.
