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.
