GOODYEAR, Ariz. - 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 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.
