Final Score: San Diego 2, Seattle 0
San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Edinson Volquez tossed 6 2/3 scoreless
innings on Sunday and the San Diego Padres blanked the Seattle Mariners, 2-0,
in the finale of a three-game interleague series at Petco Park.
Volquez (4-7) allowed four hits with three walks and four strikeouts to notch
the win. Joe Thatcher got the final out of the seventh, Luke Gregerson pitched
a scoreless eighth and Huston Street recorded his 10th save of the season with
a clean ninth inning.
"It couldn't have gone more perfectly," Street said. "The bullpen pitched
well. The first thing (Padres manager Bud Black) Buddy said to me was: 'That
one was a good one to get.' I knew he meant that it was for (Padres bullpen
coach Darrel Akerfelds) Ak." Akerfelds lost his life on Sunday after a long
battle with pancreatic cancer.
Alexi Amarista provided the only offense of the day with a two-run, ground-
rule double for the Padres, who had lost four of their last five contests
entering play on Sunday. Mark Kotsay went 3-for-3 in the triumph.
Hector Noesi (2-9) allowed two runs on seven hits with six strikeouts and
three walks over six innings. He also went 2-for-2 at the plate for the
Mariners, who have dropped three of four.
"I thought Hector threw the ball batter today," Mariners manager Eric Wedge
said. "He was more consistent with everything. I was really pleased with his
The Padres plated the only runs of the game in the fourth. Chase Headley drew
a leadoff walk before Chris Denorfia and John Baker followed with consecutive
singles to load the bases with no outs. After Cameron Maybin lined out,
Amarista picked up his teammate and roped a ball deep to left that took a hop
over the wall for a ground-rule double to plate two runs.
Seattle put together a threat in the fifth when Noesi smacked a two-out base
hit and Ichiro Suzuki drew a walk to put two runners on with two down, but
Volquez got John Jaso to fly out to center to end the inning.
Pinch-hitter Kyle Seager sliced a double down the left-field line with one out
in the Seattle eighth, but nothing came of it, as Justin Smoak lined into a
double play to keep the Padres in front.
Street retired Michael Saunders, Dustin Ackley and Chone Figgins in order in
the ninth to lock up the victory.
Prior to Sunday's game, the Padres placed pitcher Anthony Bass on the 15-day
disabled list with right shoulder inflammation and activated infielder Andy
Parrino from the DL...Akerfelds had held the position since 2001...Seattle
went 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position and stranded seven on base.
