PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) – Robinson Cano hit a two-run homer and Franklin Gutierrez connected for a solo shot in the Seattle Mariners’ 9-7 spring loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday.

Seattle’s Wade Miley, acquired in a trade with Boston in December, pitched two scoreless innings his first spring start. He struck out two and walked one.

Daniel Nava, who signed with Los Angeles in free agency, hit a two-run double off Vidal Nuno in the fourth inning. Nava finished with three RBIs.

The Angels’ backups put together a four-run seventh inning after Los Angeles trailed 5-2 at one point. The Mariners tied it, but Los Angeles plated two runs in the ninth.

Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz made his spring debut as the designated hitter. He went 0 for 2 and was hit by a pitch.
