AT THE PLATE: Torii Hunter and Vernon Wells hit their first homers of the spring, back-to-back shots, and Mark Trumbo capped a four-run, fourth-inning rally with a two-run homer to left-center, his major league-tying fifth homer of the spring. Trumbo reached for a low-and-away, 0-and-2 pitch from left-hander Wade LeBlanc and drove it over the left-center field wall. Brandon Wood also homered to left in the sixth.
ON THE MOUND: Joel Pineiro gave up two-run home runs to Eric Patterson and Ryan Ludwick during a four-inning outing in which he allowed eight hits, struck out five and walked one. The sinker-ball specialist threw a lot more sliders and changeups than he would in a regular-season game. He left a few balls up, "and you saw the consequences of that," he said.
