Hernandez pitches well as Mariners and Rockies tie 2-2 in 10

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Seattle ace Felix Hernandez allowed two hits and an unearned run in four innings and the Mariners tied a Colorado Rockies split squad 2-2 in 10 innings Friday night.
In line for a team-record seventh opening-day start, Hernandez struck out two and overcame brief control issues in the second when he gave up his lone walk.
A jovial, smiling Hernandez detailed his rigorous offseason conditioning program and his improved diet that's left him leaner ahead of his 28th birthday next month.
The motivation?
"I would love to get the ball in the playoffs," he said of the big void in his career.
Erasmo Ramirez, seeking to snag a rotation spot, followed with four innings. He allowed a run on four hits with three strikeouts.
Stefan Romero hit a solo homer in the first, and Brad Miller tripled and scored in the third for Seattle. Those were the only hits against Rockies starter Franklin Morales, who struck out four in four innings as he contends for the fifth spot in the rotation.
NL batting champion Michael Cuddyer went 2 for 3 for Colorado and scored on Jack Reinheimer's throwing error in the second.
