Garza on His Game in Cubs' Loss to Mariners
PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- Matt Garza had a positive outing for his new team, pitching four solid innings Monday in the Chicago Cubs' 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners.

Acquired from Tampa Bay this winter in an eight-player trade, Garza had struggled in two of his first three appearances with the Cubs. He was much better against Seattle, giving up a run and three hits with three strikeouts and two walks.

The right-hander pitched a no-hitter against Detroit last season while going 15-10 with a 3.91 ERA in 32 starts.

Adam Kennedy drove in two runs with a sixth-inning single for the Mariners, an inning after Chone Figgins doubled in the tying run.
