Worth noting

• Due to possible rain in Arizona, Saturday's game against the Angels originally slated to air on the MLB Network on tape delay at 1 p.m. PT is now scheduled to air on Sunday at 7 a.m.

The MLB Network will show nine Mariners games this spring on a delayed basis in the Seattle area, with the next one coming Tuesday against the Dodgers at 1 p.m.

• Veteran right-hander Matt Palmer, a 35-year-old non-roster invitee with 63 games of Major League experience with the Giants, Angels and Padres, has a sore elbow and will be sidelined for a few days.

• The Mariners have opened Cactus League play with a 2-0 record for the ninth time in team history, but the first since 1994. They also won their first two games in '81, '83, 1988-92 and '94.

"They played extremely well today," McClendon said after Friday's 12-1 win against the Padres. "I was pleased in almost all facets of the game. We ran the bases extremely well, played good solid defense and made the good decisions."

• Seattle is now 14-3-2 against the Padres in spring play since 2009.
