Gilbert wins 10th, surging Mariners sweep sliding Padres

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Logan Gilbert earned his 10th win to tie for the major league lead, Sam Haggerty hit his first home run in over two months and the Seattle Mariners beat the San Diego Padres 6-2 on Tuesday.

The Mariners, who have won 12 of their last 15 games, swept the two-game set to win their fifth consecutive series. Seattle (41-42) moved within one game of .500 for the first time since May 4.

Haggerty had three hits, Dylan Moore doubled twice and hot-hitting rookie Julio Rodriguez had two singles for Seattle. Haggerty and Rodriguez also both stole a base - Moore, meanwhile, was twice caught stealing.

The Padres have lost nine of 12.

Gilbert (10-3) allowed one earned run and six hits in 5 1/3 innings. He walked three, struck out one and has a 2.61 ERA.

Gibert matched Houston's Justin Verlander and the Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin atop the big league win chart.

Mike Clevinger (2-1) gave up four runs and six hits over six innings. With the Padres' offensive struggles, that was enough for the Mariners - San Diego has scored 10 runs in six games, with four coming in the ninth inning on Sunday.

Clevinger retired the initial eight batters before Haggerty's first home run since April 24 gave Seattle a 1-0 lead in the third.

  • Seattle scored three times in the fourth for a 4-1 lead. Moore hit a two-run double and Haggerty had an RBI single.

    The Padres got a run in the third on a rare error by the Mariners, who entered the game with 28 miscues, the fewest in the majors. With two on, Eric Hosmer hit a grounder that ricocheted off second baseman Adam Frazier's glove.

    Nomar Mazara had three of San Diego's eight hits.

    Padres: LHP Adrian Morejon (shoulder) will begin a rehab stint with Triple-A El Paso and could return prior to the All-Star break.


    Mariners: After Wednesday's day off, Seattle LHP Marco Gonzalez (4-9) faces the visiting Blue Jays to start a four-game series.

    Padres: San Diego resumes play on Thursday, when RHP Joe Musgrove (8-2) goes against the San Francisco Giants in the opener of a four-game series at home.
