    PEORIA, Ariz. -- On the day the Seattle Mariners set their starting rotation for the regular season, left-hander Jason Vargas struggled.

    Vargas, Seattle's No. 2 starter, gave up five runs and 11 hits in five innings Monday, before the Mariners rallied with two runs in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Colorado Rockies 7-6.

    Steve Baron lined a single to right field to drive in Michael Saunders with the winning run. The Mariners tied the score with hits from Justin Smoak and Saunders and a two-base error by Rockies right fielder Bronson Sardinha.

    The Rockies scored three runs in the fifth inning off Vargas, two on Ty Wiggington's double.

    Milton Bradley drove in two runs and Chone Figgins had three hits, a stolen base and a run batted in for Seattle.
