Mariners 6, Angels 4 …

Albert Pujols and Miguel Olivo greet each other before Wednesday's game.


Neither No. 3 hitter was in the lineup for this one. Albert Pujols had the day off for the Angels, and new No. 3 hitter Ichiro Suzuki didn’t travel with the Mariners. And so, through six innings, no scoring took place at Tempe Diablo Stadium. Finally, in the seventh, the Mariners broke through against tall Angels reliever Loek Van Mil.

The good

Jered Weaver hurled two scoreless innings, walking none, striking out two and giving up three hits. Weaver, who finished with 34 pitches (20 strikes), worked out of a bases-loaded, two-out situation in the top of the second.Only fastballs and changeups for him at this point.

Closer Jordan Walden made his spring debut, giving up one hit and striking out one in his lone inning of work. He mixed in some changeups — a pitch he’s focusing on this spring — and got a groundball out on one.

Second baseman Taylor Lindsey, the sixth-best Angels prospect, went 2-for-2 with a triple.

Speaking of triples, the speedy Peter Bourjos hit one, too.

The bad

Van Mil, who stands 7-foot-1, surrendered three runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk in 1 1/3 innings.

Chris Iannetta went 0-for-3 with a couple of strikeouts.

And Mark Trumbo started at third base today, but got absolutely nothing hit to him. Weaver doesn’t give up too many grounders, as you might have heard.

Best quote

Weaver on seeing the 6-foot-4 Trumbo at third base: “I’ve been used to some smaller guys over there at third, so he was in my peripheral a little bit going into the windup. It was a little weird getting that ball from him when they throw it around. But I’ve been watching him taking ground balls and stuff, and he actually looks really comfortable over there.”

Best play (that I saw)

Kendrick hit a rocket to left field in the first inning, but it went right to Mike Carp, who then doubled up Erick Aybar at first base.
