Base-running got them a run and took away several as the Seattle Mariners opened the Cactus League season with a 4-4 tie against San Diego.

“We’re going to make mistakes, we’re going to struggle a bit and we’re going to adjust,” manager Don Wakamatsu said.

Two Mariners were thrown out at the plate by wide margins, another was thrown out at third base, one man was caught stealing and one – Reegie Corona – was picked off first base twice.

The Mariners are pushing aggressiveness this spring. Now, they have to fine tune it so they’re not running pell-mell into outs.

Eric Hull should have gotten out of the ninth ahead, 4-3, but a ground ball hit the bag at first for a hit, and an RBI double tied the game.
