Seattle 10, Dodgers 7.
AT THE PLATE: Ted Lilly had a two-run triple against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez. Unfortunately for Lilly, his day at the plate was better than his day on the mound. He was charged with seven runs in 21/3 innings. Lilly had off-season shoulder surgery and his spring throwing program was interrupted by illness and bad weather. Asked by Manager Don Mattingly if he would consider starting the season on the disabled list, Lilly replied, "I'm not really sure."
ON THE MOUND: Clayton Kershaw maintained his position that he didn't want to negotiate a contract extension once the regular season started. Kershaw is under contract for $11 million this year and will be eligible for salary arbitration next year. He will be eligible for free agency after the 2014 season. Facing the Mariners over three innings Wednesday, Kershaw was charged with three runs and five hits. Two of the runs came on a first-inning home run by Michael Morse.
EXTRA BASES: Top prospect Yasiel Puig, optioned to double-A Chattanooga (Tenn.) on Tuesday, will be returning to Southern California with the major league club. Puig will play Thursday against the Dodgers' Class-A affiliate in Rancho Cucamonga. He is also expected to play in the Freeway Series games Friday and Saturday. Puig, 22, led the Cactus League with a .526 batting average.
