The Arizona Diamondbacks continue to struggle in the early going in their 2012 Cactus League Spring Training games. They dropped a night game to the Seattle Mariners on Saturday by a final score of 7-1. With the loss, the Diamondbacks fell to 2-5 in the Cactus League.
The final score is perhaps even worse than it may at first appear. The only Diamondbacks run of the game came in the bottom of the sixth inning on a hit batsman and a wild pitch. The D-Backs managed just five hits, no extra-base hits and no RBI in the game.
The Mariners scored four runs off of starter Ian Kennedy in the first two innings and would end up needing no more runs, but tacked on a couple more just for fun. Kennedy picked up his second loss of the spring, going three innings and allowing four runs on six hits. He allowed no walks and picked up three strikeouts.
