Wahoos 2, Zaps 0

Arrieta vs. Liriano
First game with full rosters and the Wahoos act like it's the first game of spring training. An error and three hits lead to a two-run inning for the Zaps. Arrieta continues to struggle as he gave up three in the third thanks in part to his own error. Wahoos clawed back in the game in the eighth vs. Ziegler. Machado contributed to the festivities with a 2-base throwing error that led to a pair of runs. Down 6-5 entering the ninth the Wahoos got to Giles. Pham pinch hit with a leadoff triple. Mahtook singled him. Turner rolled into two. Then Seager went deep. Wahoos eek out a 7-6 victory to improve to 1-8 this season vs. the Zaps.

Estrada vs. Greinke
Turner connected for a solo shot (1-5 HR/Fly) with two outs in the third. Goldy tied it with a homer in the top of the fourth (on a 1-2 roll). With the Zaps up 3-1 in the bottom of the eighth pinch hitter Tommy Pham led off with a homer. In the ninth with two on and two outs last gasp hitter Curt Casali rolled one to Machado. Boot. Tying run scores and it's now second and third with two outs. To the 10th we go...Casali comes up with a man on in the 11th. Grounder to Manny at third. Another boot. Now it's first and third with one out. Giles retires the next 2 batters. To the 12th...more zeroes. Bottom of the 13th with the bases empty and two outs. Casali hits a clean shot at 2-5. Wahoos win, 4-3.
