PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - The game between a Colorado Rockies split squad and Seattle Mariners on Sunday was postponed by rain after a delay of 34 minutes in the top of the fourth inning.
Seattle was leading 3-2 but the Rockies had runners on first and third with none out against Mariners starter Hector Noesi when a downpour of rain and hail began.
Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning to tie it at 2.
Eric Young Jr. doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly in the first inning and a pair of Noesi wild pitches allowed Jordan Pacheco to score after a walk.
Chone Figgins had two hits for Seattle, the second a run-scoring single off Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood.
Noesi went four innings and allowed four hits with two walks, and Chatwood lasted 3 2-3 innings and gave up three runs on seven hits with three walks and three strikeouts.
