PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Ichiro Suzuki broke a scoreless tie with a run-scoring double in the third and Felix Hernandez pitched four shutout innings, leading the Seattle Mariners over the Colorado Rockies 7-2 Monday.

Mariners catcher Jesus Montero was hit in the helmet by a pitch from Edgmer Escalona. An angry Montero had to be escorted off the field by manager Eric Wedge. On Sunday, Cleveland's Ubaldo Jimenez hit former Colorado teammate Troy Tulowitzki. Jimenez was suspended five games and is appealing.

Hernandez struck out six and allowed only two hits, one a bunt single. He combined on a six-hitter on March 28, MLB's season opener in Tokyo. He'll next pitch Saturday.

Jamie Moyer gave up a run and nine hits in five innings. He struck out five.
