Gutierrez leads powerful Seattle offense to win
SEATTLE 9, LA DODGERS 5

By SCOTT BAIR

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- Chris Capuano had problems with home runs
for the second straight start.



Trying to earn a job in the Los Angeles Dodgers' rotation,
Capuano allowed long balls to Mike Zunino and Franklin Gutierrez
during a three-run third inning Saturday in a 9-5 loss to the
Seattle Mariners.



Capuano started with two perfect innings that included three
strikeouts before Zunino homered leading off the third.



In a rotation led by Clayton Kershaw, additions Zach Greinke and
Hyun-Jin Ryu, and Josh Beckett, Capuano is competing with Aaron
Harang and Ted Lilly.



"I don't worry about getting a spot in that rotation," Capuano
said. "It doesn't change what I do or how I go about my
business. I'm going to get my work in, and I'm going to compete
hard in every game. Ultimate decisions aren't up aren't up to us
as players, and it doesn't behoove us to pay attention to the
process of making them."



The 34-year-old left-hander was 12-12 with a 3.72 ERA in 33
starts last year. He has allowed four homers in two spring
training outings, and he went straight to the bullpen after the
third inning to work on his fastball command.



"There will be a time to make some tough decisions, but that's a
little ways down the road," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.
"He needs to keep working and to keep refining."



Seattle has won eight exhibitions in a row and has 20 homers in
nine games.



"We have a lot of options, and a lot of talent we can mix and
match into a lineup," manager Eric Wedge said. "If there was
ever a year to play a lot of spring games and let guys show us
all of what they can do, this is it."



Gutierrez was 2 for 3 with four RBIs and raised his spring
training home run total to three.



"It's still early, but the most important thing to take from
these games is that we're doing something right," he said. "We
have a lot of talent here, a lot of guys that can hit the ball a
long way. I don't think anybody tries for home runs, but we're
being aggressive within the strike zone. That's the key to
success, no matter when the games are played."



Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma allowed one run and two hits in
two innings. Dodgers reliever Chad Billingsley gave up three
runs and five hits in 2 1-3 innings.



NOTES: Mariners RHP Felix Hernandez is to throw a bullpen
session Sunday and to make his 2013 spring training debut on
Thursday. The Mariners have two games that day, and Hernandez is
expected to pitch against Kansas City rather than Oakland,
Seattle's opening-day opponent. ... Dodgers OF Andre Ethier was
scratched from Friday's lineup due to a blister but played
Saturday and was 2 for 2. Ethier's right elbow was hit by a
pitch from LHP Oliver Perez in the fifth inning. Ethier was
immediately removed for a pinch runner, and Mattingly said he
was not hurt.
