PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -Scott Elarton pitched two scoreless innings in his first start since 2008 and a squad of Chicago White Sox minor leaguers roughed up Ian Snell in a 9-4 win over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday.
Elarton, who hasn't pitched in the majors since the Cleveland Indians placed him on the disabled list in July 2008 for what the club then called a non-baseball medical condition, signed a minor league deal this week. He gave up one hit and struck out one.
Snell, the Mariners' No. 2 starter, gave up six runs and 10 hits while striking out five.
The White Sox big-league roster left Thursday morning for exhibition games in Charlotte, N.C., and Atlanta.
