Major League Baseball: Mariners 4, Royals 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The weather finally turned Wednesday and gave Seattle a warm, sun-splashed afternoon in Kansas City, and the Mariners made sure to relish the spring-like temperatures. Kyle Seager hit a go-ahead homer with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Mariners held on to beat the Royals 4-2 to wrap up a winning seven-game journey that covered 10 days and about 5,200 miles.
Nick Vincent (1-0) worked a perfect seventh, and Juan Nicasio retired three in a row after putting runners on the corners, before closer Edwin Diaz entered for the ninth.
Diaz worked around shortstop Jean Seguras second error of the game to earn his fourth save.
