ANGELS 8, MARINERS 2
at Tempe, Ariz.
Sunday, March 23
Up next for Mariners: Left-hander Jarrod Washburn, who has been the most consistent of the five starters, makes his fifth Cactus League start, facing the White Sox at Peoria Stadium. The veteran threw 87 pitches in his previous start but that only took him into the fourth inning. He figures to reach the 100-pitch plateau against the White Sox and preferably go at least six innings. Right-hander Sean Green and left-hander Arthur Rhodes also are slated to pitch for Seattle.
