Mariners top Cubs 8-7 in 10 innings

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Robinson Cano doubled twice and drove in a run, and the Seattle Mariners rallied from three runs down in the ninth inning for an 8-7, 10-inning win over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night.

Cano has at least one hit in seven of his past eight spring training games, having missed four games after an emergency dental procedure last week. The Mariners second baseman is 12-for-19 this spring.

Cubs prospect Javier Baez homered and roster hopeful Mike Olt hit two home runs and drove in three runs.

Olt, a 2010 first-round draft pick, took Mariners starter Randy Wolf deep in the second inning for his first home run of the night. Baez tied the score at 2 with his home run off Wolf in the top of the fourth.

"He's got good bat speed and obviously he's got good power," Wolf said of Baez. "You leave the ball out over the plate and he's that strong, it's not going to be a cheap home run."

Olt started a four-run sixth inning with his second home run. Catcher John Baker finished 2-for-3 with a three-run double in the sixth.

Baker cleared the bases after three Mariners' errors in the inning.

Seattle shortstop Brad Miller helped his cause as he battles another young player, Nick Franklin, for the starting job. Miller homered, singled and drove in two.

Cubs starter James McDonald struggled with his control and got through just 2 2-3 innings, walking five.

"It's not always going to be 1-2-3," McDonald said. "One thing I can control is my effort and the way I compete."

Mariners catcher John Buck drove in the tying runs with a two-out single in the bottom of the ninth.

Abraham Almonte scored the winning run on a Ty Kelly single in the 10th.
