The Killer B’s were out in force tonight at Peoria Sports Complex.

Gregor Blanco scored the game’s first run, Brandon Belt went 3-for-5 with a double, and Brandon Crawford hit his first spring training home run as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Seattle Mariners 7-5. [box score] [video highlights]

Giants starter Barry Zito went four innings and struck out four. He allowed two runs on four hits and a couple of walks.

Brett Pill had an RBI double. [video]

Closer-of-the-future Heath Hembree pitched a perfect ninth to notch the save.

Top Giants hitter: Belt (3-for-5, 2B, RBI)
Top Giants pitcher: Loux (1 IP, H, 3 K)
Key moment of the game: Crawford’s 2-run HR in 6th gives Giants the lead.

The Giants (9-4-2) travel to Hohokam Park tomorrow to take on the Chicago Cubs (6-6). The Cubs beat the G-men 5-4 on Tuesday. Eric Surkamp (1-1, 6.14) will square off against Matt Garza (1-1, 16.20). The game can be heard via web stream at MLB.com’s online Media Center.

NOTES: Belt is now batting .375 this spring. Aubrey Huff (who did not play tonight) is at .280 … Second baseman Charlie Culberson was optioned to the Giants’ minor league camp … Ryan Vogelsong could face live hitters on Saturday. The right-hander’s arm responded very well to a 50-pitch bullpen session yesterday. He’s expected to get his first Cactus League start next week … Freddy Sanchez is still not 100 percent where he needs to be in order to get into a game defensively. He is still having problems making the hard pivot throw across his body at second base (Ryan Theriot, your spot on the roster is secure) … Manager Bruce Bochy‘s son, Brett Bochy, was one of the relievers who traveled with the team to Peoria today. He did not pitch tonight, though.
