ATHLETICS 9, BREWERS 7 PHOENIX -- Chris Young hit a grand slam and Josh Donaldson homered among his four hits as the Oakland Athletics backed Bartolo Colon with a big offensive performance in a 9-7 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday. Scott Sizemore had four hits and two RBIs for the A's. Colon gave up three runs and six hits over five innings in his third start and fifth appearance of the spring. He struck out three and walked none. Colon will sit out the first five games of the season while completing his 50-game suspension for a positive drug test last year. Brewers starter Chris Narveson served up Young's slam in the fourth. The left-hander allowed six runs on eight hits and five walks in 3 2-3 innings. MARINERS 16, REDS 0 GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Jesus Montero hit a grand slam, Michael Saunders homered among his three hits and the Seattle Mariners hammered Homer Bailey in a 16-0 rout of the Cincinnati Reds on Monday. Saunders connected off Bailey, and Justin Smoak added two hits off the right-hander, driving in three runs. Montero's slam came off Wilken De La Rosa, one of two non-roster pitchers left in Reds camp. Bailey was scheduled to pitch five innings but lasted only 3 1-3, allowing nine runs on nine hits and two walks. He struck out five. Saunders also doubled, singled and scored three times from the leadoff spot. Brandon Maurer continued to impress the Mariners. He gave up six hits and a walk in five innings, striking out seven. The 22-year-old is making a strong case to earn a spot in Seattle's starting rotation. GIANTS 9, CUBS 3 MESA, Ariz. -- Ryan Vogelsong allowed three runs on six hits in six innings, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 9-3 win over the Chicago Cubs on Monday. A dropped fly ball that turned into a run-scoring double and a two-out, two-run home run by Dioner Navarro were all the Cubs could muster against Vogelsong, who struck out three and walked two. Vogelsong's last start of the spring will come Saturday against Oakland. Buster Posey had three hits and drove in a run, Andres Torres and Joaquin Arias each doubled in two runs and Angel Pagan had two hits and two RBI for San Francisco. George Kontos, Javier Lopez and Sergio Romo shut out the Cubs over the final three innings. Left-hander Travis Wood started for the Cubs and gave up four runs on seven hits with four walks in four innings. PADRES 3, RANGERS 1 PEORIA, Ariz. -- Texas Rangers left-hander Derek Holland pitched six innings in his first start since returning from the World Baseball Classic, giving up three runs and six hits in a 3-1 loss to the San Diego Padres on Monday. Holland struck out seven and walked on and also had an RBI single in the second inning. Elvis Andrus was 2 for 5 with a double for the Rangers, extending his spring hitting streak to 14 games. San Diego starter Jason Marquis also pitched six innings, allowing a run and six hits with four walks. Everth Cabrera was 2 for 2 with a run scored for the Padres, and left fielder Jesus Guzman hit a two-run home run and struck out twice. ANGELS 11, WHITE SOX 5 GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Chris Iannetta and Alberto Callaspo homered off White Sox starter Gavin Floyd, and Mark Trumbo drove in two runs with a double to help the Los Angeles Angels beat Chicago 11-5 on Monday. Floyd, the team's No. 3 starter, allowed six runs and 10 hits over the first three innings before getting on track and pitching four scoreless frames. The right-hander was charged with seven runs and 13 hits in all over seven-plus innings. He struck out six and walked one. Chicago played without right fielder Alex Rios, who went for a precautionary MRI on his lower back after missing a third straight game with stiffness. The White Sox said they expect him back in a few days. Los Angeles held out scheduled starter Tommy Hanson, pitching him in an intrasquad game instead, and used eight pitchers.
