Seattle Mariners pitcher Yusei Kikuchi of Japan throws during spring training baseball practice in Peoria Ariz. Whether he wants to be or not Kikuchi’s rookie season is a science experiment

He's tallied at least one hit and one RBI in each of the Red Sox's four games against the Mariners. Eight Seattle batters have hit 13 combined home runs, with nine coming against the defending World Series champions.

Boston's left fielder took Seattle Mariners starter Wade LeBlanc deep to left field for a 3-run homer in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon's game at T-Mobile Park.

For the first time in team history, Boston's starters gave up six runs or more in each of the first three games. "I feel excited to go up to the plate, so I'm going to try to stay there for 10-15 more years and we'll see how it goes". But, catcher Omar Narvaez hit a three-run homer during a seven-run third inning as Seattle built a 9-3 lead.

Rodriguez was tagged for a pair of runs in the first inning, allowing an RBI single to Tim Beckham and a run-scoring double to Ryon Healy. They've scored 21 of 42 runs this season on homers.

Rodriguez allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits while walking three and throwing 105 pitches, 61 for strikes.

Brexit: Talks with Corbyn and short delay - Theresa May's next steps
If not, it's expected that Members of Parliament (MPs ) will vote on a range of options about what to do next. One source said Cabinet ministers were split 14-10 against asking for a long extension to the Brexit process.

J.D. Martinez's second home run of the 2019 Major League Baseball season is one the Boston Red Sox slugger won't soon forget.

With regular closer Hunter Strickland (right lat) on the 10-day injured list, and likely out for a couple of months, the Mariners will continue to experiment with the bullpen, and shuttling different pitchers out in different situations.

The 31-year-old's résumé seems to grow by the game, so it's not totally surprising he initially was unaware of his latest accomplishment.

Red Sox: 2B Dustin Pedroia (left knee) played in an extended spring training game. The right-hander became the third pitcher to record a save for the Mariners this season.
