Mariners Vs. Padres Final Score: Seattle Drops Series With 2-0 Shutout Loss

The Seattle Mariners were gunning for a series win against the San Diego Padres on Sunday afternoon. While starter Hector Noesi turned in one of his better performances of the season in the rubber game of the three-game set, the Mariners bats disappeared in a shutout 2-0 loss.

All of the damage came in the bottom of the fourth inning. Noesi loaded the bases before recording the first out of the inning, after which Alexi Amarista hit a two-run ground-rule double that sealed the win for the Pads.

The Mariners had five hits and three walks in the game, but were just 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base. The only extra-base hit of the game for the M's was a Kyle Seager double.

Noesi gave up seven hits and three walks in six innings of work, striking out six Padres batters along the way. His record now slips to 2-9 on the season.

With the loss, the Mariners are just 1-5 against the Padres in 2012.

Mariners Vs. Padres Final Score: King Felix Leads Seattle To 5-1 Win

On Friday night, the Seattle Mariners finally scored their first win of the season over the San Diego Padres. The M's gave their ace plenty of run support as Felix Hernandez had his second great start in a row, particularly after a shaky first inning. The Mariners won by a final score of 5-1.

In the first inning, Hernandez gave up back-to-back singles with one out and then balked in a run. He settled down significantly after that, eventually giving up just six hits and a walk in seven innings, while striking out 10 Padres.

The M's tied things up with an RBI groundout by Brendan Ryan in the top of the second. The very next batter was Hernandez, who helped out his own cause with a two-run double to right field. Michael Saunders made it 4-1 with a home run off the foul pole in the top of the third. Ichiro Suzuki drove in the final insurance run for Seattle in the top of the fourth with an RBI single.

The Padres did not pick up an extra-base hit until Everth Cabrera hit a double off of Tom Wilhelmsen in the bbottom of the ninth.

The Mariners will go for the series victory in the rubber game on Sunday.

Mariners Vs. Padres Final Score: Seattle Gives Up Big Inning, Loses 9-5

The Seattle Mariners hosted a three-game series against the San Diego Padres a couple of weeks ago. Now they are in San Diego, playing the Pads in another three-game series. As of Friday night, the Mariners are still winless against San Diego in 2012. Starting pitcher was handed his first-ever loss in San Diego, as he let the fourth inning get away from him in what ended up being a 9-5 victory for the Pads.

The Mariners held a decent lead for a few innings. In the first inning, Franklin Gutierrez hit a two-run homer (yes, in Petco Park). Miguel Olivo followed that up with a homer of his own in the second inning to make it 3-0 Mariners. In the top of the third, Justin Smoak hit a sacrifice fly to push things out to 4-0, but then the Padres began to come back.

Cameron Maybin and Chase Headley each picked up an RBI in the bottom of the third to cut the lead in half, but the big damage came in the bottom of the fourth, as the Padres put together a five-run inning. Evert Cabrera and Clayton Richard had RBI doubles, Will Venable had an RBI single and Headley added a sacrifice fly and it was suddenly 7-4 Padres.

The Mariners scored on a throwing error in the fifth to make it 7-5, but San Diego got that run right back with another RBI single by Richard. Headley added a second sacrifice fly in the eighth inning that gave the Padres a 9-5 lead.

Of the nine Mariners hits in the game, four were by Gutierrez and three were by Ichiro Suzuki.

The Mariners will try to even things up on Saturday.
