SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Zack Greinke had his first rough inning of the spring Monday in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 8-3 victory over a Seattle Mariners split squad.

Greinke gave up a home run to Kyle Seager and triples to Luis Sardinas and Seth Smith in a three-run third. The right-hander, signed by the Diamondbacks to a six-year, $206.5 million free agent contract, went 3 2-3 innings. He allowed three runs on six hits, struck out two and hit a batter.

Greinke had pitched seven scoreless innings this spring before his third-inning troubles.

Seattle starter Taijuan Walker gave up four runs on seven hits in 3 1-3 innings. He struck out three with no walks.
