The Colorado Rockies lost 7-2 to the Seattle Mariners in their final exhibition game before the beginning of the 2012 regular season on Wednesday. The Mariners offense got to Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin in the fourth inning and Colorado's offense couldn't muster enough offense to make things interesting.
After the two teams traded scoreless frames for three innings, the Mariners got to Chacin for five runs in the fourth inning. They added a couple of insurance runs off Alex White in the fifth inning and then let the bullpen hold off Colorado's offense for the remainder of the game.
Mariners starter Hector Noesi, acquired along with Jesus Montero in the deal that sent Michael Pineda to New York, gave up just one run on seven hits over seven innings of work. John Jaso and Ichiro each got on base three times apiece for Seattle. Wilin Rosario went 2-for-3 with two doubles as Colorado's catcher.
