PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) – Felix Hernandez allowed three runs on six hits in 2 1/3 innings Monday in his spring training debut, but the Seattle Mariners’ split squad fell to the Colorado Rockies 6-4.

Hernandez was scheduled throw up to three innings, but lifted after Ryan Raburn’s two-run single in the top of the third with 50 pitches. The Mariners’ ace and six-time All-Star struck out five and walked one.

Raburn, who signed a minor-league contract earlier this month, went 3-for-3 and had 4 RBI. Trevor Story, who is closing in on the Rockies’ starting shortstop job, hit a solo home run, tripled, walked and had 3 RBI.

Tyler Chatwood pitched three hitless innings for the Rockies. New Mariners first baseman Adam Lind hit his first home run of the spring and Franklin Gutierrez hit his third, both coming back-to-back in the sixth inning.
