GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Billy Hamilton bunted for a single - the biggest focus of his offseason - and stole another base on Monday before the Seattle Mariners rallied for a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Hamilton worked on becoming a better bunter in his role as Cincinnati's new leadoff hitter. He started a four-run rally in the third with his bunt single. The Mariners had two errors in the inning behind starter Erasmo Ramirez.

Hamilton walked, stole and scored in the fifth on Skip Schumaker's sacrifice fly for a 5-1 lead.

Alfredo Simon pitched three hitless innings. Closer Aroldis Chapman went two innings, giving up a run and three hits while fanning three.

Brad Miller hit a solo homer for Seattle and Chris Taylor had a grand slam off minor leaguer Chad Rogers.
