Wednesday’s exhibition game between the Mariners and Indians was brought to a sudden stop in the eighth inning after an alarm went off at Goodyear Ballpark.
As the loud beeping continued, fans eventually started to evacuate, only to return to their seats after the scoreboard proclaimed that it was a “False Alarm.”
The players remained on the field throughout the incident, so play was able to resume about five minutes later. The Mariners were up 5-0 at the time and went on to win the game 5-1. Outfielder Carlos Peguero homered twice for Seattle. Top prospect Danny Hultzen started and struck out four in two scoreless innings.
