Mariners beat Giants 7-1 in rain-shortened game 

Adam Moore doubled, singled and drove in two runs, Matt Tuiasosopo homered and the Seattle Mariners beat the San Francisco Giants 7-1 in a rain-shortened, 5½-inning game Sunday in the teams' exhibition finale.

The game was called after Nate Schierholtz singled with one out in the bottom of the sixth. There was a steady rain all game, and the best play of the day was a diving grab by first-base balldude Ray Ramirez donning a poncho.

Seattle, which opens the regular season Monday across San Francisco Bay in Oakland, beat up Giants fifth starter Todd Wellemeyer for three runs and three hits in three innings.

New Giants left fielder Mark DeRosa started walking toward the visitor's dugout after striking out to end the first before heading the right way.

San Francisco was headed to Houston after the game for Monday's opener against the Astros.
