PEORIA, Ariz. – The Milwaukee Brewers scored four late runs in a 7-6 victory to snap the Seattle Mariners 10-game Cactus League winning streak Wednesday afternoon at Peoria Stadium.

The Mariners (10-2) had not lost since the Cactus League opener on Feb. 22 vs. the Padres, setting a club record for consecutive spring training victories.

Michael Morse (#2, 4th inning) and Kendrys Morales (#2, 5th inning) both hit home runs, giving the Mariners 26 longballs in 12 games this spring to lead all teams (Cactus and Grapefruit League). The club has also registered multiple home runs in nine consecutive games.

The Brewers took the early 3-0 lead heading into the bottom of the third inning. Seattle got on the board on a RBI groundout by Franklin Gutierrez. The Mariners pulled to within one run on Morse's fourth inning home run, and took a 6-3 lead with a four-run fifth inning.

Milwaukee made a late comeback with three runs off reliever Josh Kinney in the top of the seventh inning, and scored the eventual game-winning run on a solo home run by Cole Garner off left-hander Charlie Furbush (0-1).

The Mariners were out-hit 15-8, with no player recording a multi-hit game.

Today's game will be replayed tonight on the radio on 710 ESPN Seattle at 9 p.m. PT.

The Mariners (10-2) return to Cactus League play with a pair of split-squad games tomorrow at Kansas City and Oakland (both 12:05 PT/1:05 MT). The game in Surprise vs. the Royals will air on a tape-delayed basis at 7 p.m. PT on ESPN 710 Seattle, but will be available live and free-of-charge via Mariners.com. Right-handed pitcher Felix Hernandez is scheduled to make his Cactus League debut against Royals right-hander Ervin Santana (0-0, 0.00). In the game vs. the A's (Phoenix Municipal), right-hander Brandon Maurer (1-0, 0.00) will make his first spring start (3rd appearance) against A's left-hander Tommy Milone (0-0, 0.00).
