Mariners Vs. Padres Final Score: Seattle Can't Avoid Sweep, Loses 6-2

The Seattle Mariners hosted the San Diego Padres on Thursday night in the final game of their three-game interleague series. Thursday's finale went much the same as the first two games and the end result was a loss by a final score of 6-2 and a sweep by the worst team in baseball.

Seattle starter Erasmo Ramirez kept the Padres scoreless until the top of the fifth, when he gave up an RBI single to Will Venable and a groundout combined with a throwing error allowed two more San Diego runs to score. The Padres pushed their lead to 6-0 in the sixth inning with RBI hits by Chris Denorfia, Jesus Guzman and John Baker.

In the bottom of the seventh, the Mariners finally broke through with their first run in fifteen innings. Dustin Ackley hit a two-out single that brought Franklin Gutierrez home to avoid the shutout. In the bottom of the eighth, Gutierrez hit an RBI single of his own to add another Mariners run. Unfortunately, that would be all she wrote.

Mariners Vs. Padres Final Score: Plenty Of Missed Opportunities In 1-0 Loss

On Wednesday night, Hector Noesi has his best start of the season for the Seattle Mariners. He ended up taking the loss and falling to 2-7 as the M's had eight hits and four walks and stranded 10 baserunners in a 1-0 loss to the San Diego Padres.

The Mariners squandered plenty of chances through the early innings, allowing Noesi no room for error. The Padres finally broke through in the top of the seventh, as Yonder Alonso led off the inning with his second home run of the year. That, sadly, was all she wrote, as the M's were unable to bring a runner across.

In all, Noesi ended up allowing five hits and three walks in seven innings of work, while also striking out five. The only Mariners extra-base hit came from Ichiro Suzuki in the fifth inning ... right after Munenori Kawasaki had grounded into a double play. Jesus Montero had three hits in the game, all singles.

The Mariners were hoping to pick up some confidence-boosting wins against the Padres in this interleague series. Instead, they will be attempting to avoid the sweep on Thursday.

Mariners Vs. Padres Final Score: King Felix Falters Again, Comeback Falls Short In 5-4 Loss

The Seattle Mariners were probably feeling good about their series opener against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night. They were hosting one of the worst teams in baseball and had their ace Felix Hernandez on the mound once again. Things didn't go quite according to plan, as the Mariners had a late comeback, but dropped the opener by a final score of 5-4.

Chase Headley hit an RBI single in the top of the third inning to get the Padres on the board. Kyle Seager hit an RBI groundout to score Ichiro Suzuki in the bottom of the fourth to tie things up at 1-1.

The big damage came in the top of the sixth inning. The Padres scored four runs on RBI singles by Cameron Maybin and Nick Hundley, a wild pitch by Hernandez and a triple by Everth Cabrera.

The Mariners mounted a huge comeback in the bottom of the ninth inning. Michael Saunders got things started as he hit his seventh home run of the season (and third hit of the game) with one out to make it 5-2. Chone Figgins then reached second base on fan interference with the M's 10th hit of the game and came home on an RBI single by Munenori Kawasaki.

Suzuki got a single to put runners on the corners with one out and brought Dustin Ackley, the potential winning run, up to the plate. After getting ahead in the count 3-1, Ackley swung at two pitches well out of the zone and struck out. The final pitch in the at-bat was a wild pitch, however, allowing Kawasaki to score. The tying run was now in scoring position with one out for Jesus Montero, but Montero grounded out to second base to end the threat and the game.

Hernandez ended up charged with five earned runs on nine hits and three walks in six innings of work.
