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.

    Memo to Astros for 2013: When it starts going south in Minute Maid (on any given night) don’t forget the old “False alarm” trick.

    The Seahawks will be doing this come October.

    Are you sure the false alarm wasn’t for the Mariners thinking they will be a contender this year. They alway do well in spring training because they are not playing against a full MLB team. Hultzen is going to be good as soon as Peguero sees a real MLB curve ball, he will show his true talent with Bo Jackson like strike outs.
