|White Sox Over Mariners, Lose To Reds
|PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- Dayan Viciedo went 3-for-3 with a double and two runs scored, and a Chicago White Sox split squad beat the Seattle Mariners 11-7 on Sunday.
Viciedo was in the middle of a five-run first inning that featured non-roster invitee Stefan Gartrell's grand slam off Mariners starter Andrew Carraway.
Seattle's Michael Morse hit his third home run of the spring, a solo shot off White Sox starter Dylan Axelrod. That was the only hit and run allowed by the right-hander.
Axelrod, who pitched in 14 games and started seven last season, worked three innings for the win. He has allowed one earned run and three hits in eight innings over three outings this spring. Axelrod has walked none and struck out seven.
Chicago's Brent Morel was 2-for-4 with a home run, and Gordon Beckham added a solo shot.
In the other split squad game, Shin-Soo Choo got four hits and Todd Frazier homered Sunday as the Cincinnati Reds beat a Chicago White Sox split squad 7-3.
Frazier had three hits and Cesar Izturis drove in two runs.
Reds starter Johnny Cueto was erratic in his second spring start. He walked three and hit another, but completed four innings and gave up just two runs.
Chicago starter Gavin Floyd allowed four runs and struck out five in 3 1-3 innings.
Paul Konerko went 0 for 3 for the White Sox after getting hits in eight of his nine previous plate appearances.
