>>M's Go Deep
Why do they tease us? We know they are not good. Nick Franklin hit two of the Mariners' five home runs in a 7-1 win over the Padres in San Diego. Kendrys Morales, Brendan Ryan and Endy Chavez also homered for Seattle, which split the two-game Interleague series at Petco Park. Felix Hernandez allowed just three hits and one run over eight innings to improve to 6-and-4 with the win. Andrew Cashner gave up four runs in six frames to fall to 4-and-3 with the loss. Carlos Quentin plated the Padres' lone run with a sac-fly in the fourth. Yonder Alonso had two of San Diego's four hits in defeat. The teams split four games in all this week.
