SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Hunter Pence hit a two-run homer in first spring game for San Francisco, but Hisashi Iwakuma threw three scoreless innings to lead Seattle to a 5-4 win on Friday.

Iwakuma allowed one hit, struck out four and walked one.

Giants right-hander Jeff Samardzija went four innings in his third start of the spring. He gave up three runs and six hits.

Leonys Martin, Stefen Romero and Franklin Gutierrez each drove in a run for the Mariners.

Joel Peralta retired his first 11 batters this spring before giving up a two-out double to Buster Posey and Pence’s homer in the fourth.
