GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — 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 worked on becoming a better bunter in his role as Cincinnati’s new leadoff hitter. He started a four-run rally in the third with his bunt single. The Mariners had two errors in the inning behind starter Erasmo Ramirez.

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.

Brad Miller hit a solo homer for Seattle and Chris Taylor had a grand slam off minor leaguer Chad Rogers.

The NHL eliminated 16 more days from the regular-season schedule Monday, Dec. 10, 2012, and if a deal with the players' association isn't reached soon the whole season could be lost. The league wiped out all games through Dec. 30 in its latest round of cancellations. Negotiations between the league and the players' association broke off last week, but NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Sunday the sides are trying to restart talks this week.
