Just hours before the regular season began Sunday, the Seattle Mariners and San Francisco Giants wrapped up the spring training schedule.
Ryan Franklin pitched four solid innings in Seattle's 3-1 victory over the Giants in San Francisco. He and five relievers combined on an eight-hitter.
"I gained a lot of confidence today in using my curve," Franklin said. "My game is pitching for contact. A curve gives me another pitch to use as a way to keep opponents off balance."
Franklin walked two and struck out one. The right-hander is scheduled to make his first start of the regular season Friday in Texas.
Marquis Grissom homered for San Francisco. Giants prospect Jesse Foppert gave up two runs -- one earned -- in five innings. He struck out five and took the loss.
"He pitches like he's been up in the majors for 10 years," manager Felipe Alou said.
