Mariners back to exhibition games after trip to Japan

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais didn’t need long to come up with one immediate advantage to playing exhibition games after having already opened the regular season.

“Yeah, the fact we’re 2-0 is not a bad thing,” Servais joked.

Servais could joke because the atmosphere around the Seattle clubhouse was relaxed, if not a little jet-lagged still, before beginning an awkward two-day stretch on Monday night with the first of two exhibition games against the San Diego Padres.

After the fanfare and excitement of traveling across the Pacific to Japan, opening the season with a pair of victories over Oakland, and bidding farewell to the professional career of Ichiro Suzuki, the Mariners returned home for a pair of games with little-to-no meaning that don’t count in the standings.
