PEORIA, ARIZ. (AP) - Ken Griffey Jr. homered for the first time since rejoining Seattle, but the Mariners lost to the Milwaukee Brewers 6-5 Friday.

The 39-year Griffey, who signed with Seattle on Feb. 18, was batting just .105 before his two-run shot off Brewers left-hander Lindsey Gulin in the bottom of the eighth pulled the Mariners to 6-5.

J.J. Hardy homered and doubled twice while scoring three runs. Milwaukee manager Ken Macha is not sure where Hardy will bat in the lineup this season _ only that it won’t be as low as seventh, where he batted most of last season.
