SALT LAKE CITY – Kendrys Morales and Justin Smoak homered and the Seattle Mariners beat the Colorado Rockies 4-3 Saturday in their final spring tuneup.

Morales ripped a fastball over the left-center fence in the top of the fourth inning.

Smoak went deep in the fifth to help the Mariners finish with the best spring training record in team history at 22-11.

Troy Tulowitzki and Todd Helton both hit solo homers to chase Brandon Maurer, who is slated to be Seattle’s fourth starter entering the season.
