SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Jon Garland pitched for the first time in nearly 20 months, Franklin Gutierrez and Nick Franklin hit home runs and the Seattle Mariners won their six straight, beating the San Francisco Giants 4-3 on Thursday.

Justin Smoak collected two more hits and drove in a run for the Mariners. Alex Liddi also drove in a run.

Brandon Belt had two hits, including a homer, and scored both runs for the Giants, who are winless in their last five games. Brandon Crawford and Cole Gillespie also drove in runs.

Garland, who last pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 2, 2011, said he was satisfied with his brief outing. He allowed a hit and walked one in one inning.

Giants ace Matt Cain lasted three innings, giving up three runs on four hits. He walked one and struck out two.

Smoak is hitting .583 this spring with six RBIs.
