Lewis, who hasn't pitched in the Major Leagues since July 18, 2012 while recovering from flexor tendon surgery and hip replacement, allowed four hits and a walk while striking out three. His next outing will be an exhibition game between Triple-A Round Rock and Double-A Frisco on Monday. Lewis will likely throw 90 pitches and could soon be an option at the Major League level.
Ramirez is trying to win the No. 2 spot in the Mariners' rotation and matched Lewis with five scoreless innings. He left after giving up a leadoff single to Adam Rosales in the sixth. Charlie Furbush took over and gave up a couple of one-out singles that brought home a run charged to Ramirez. Kouzmanoff followed with his second home run of the spring.
Brad Miller, trying to win a job at shortstop, was 1-for-2 with a walk and is hitting .439 for the spring. Nick Franklin, also in the hunt to be the starting shortstop, was 2-for-3 while playing second base. Robinson Cano was 0-for-3 while being used at designated hitter and is hitting .435.
Up next: Tanner Scheppers is scheduled to pitch against the Quintana Roo from the Mexican League at 7:05 p.m. Thursday in Arlington. Scheppers is scheduled to pitch just one inning in preparation for his Opening Day start against the Phillies on Monday.
