Hernandez, Mariners down Padres

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) – Felix Hernandez had hit a little rough patch,but Petco Park proved to be proper place for him to remedy his recent struggles on the mound.

Hernandez tossed eight solid innings and the Seattle Mariners totaled five home runs, including the first two of Nick Franklin’s career, in a 7-1 victory over the San Diego Padres.

The Seattle right-hander had surrendered 10 earned runs while losing his last two starts. On Thursday afternoon, Hernandez (6-4) held the Padres to three singles, two of which came in the fourth inning when the home team scratched out its lone run.

The Mariners head to Minnesota next to open a 3-game series vs. the Twins on Friday. You can hear all the games on KPUG 1170AM.
