Recap: Seattle vs. San Diego

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - The Padres used a four-run sixth inning to get past the Mariners, 5-4, on Tuesday in the opener of a three-game interleague series.

Everth Cabrera capped the sixth with an RBI triple, giving San Diego a 5-1 lead, but Seattle scored three times in the ninth, getting a solo homer from Michael Saunders and an RBI single from Munenori Kawasaki.

Huston Street allowed Kawasaki to cross the plate on a wild pitch, making it 5-4, before retiring Jesus Montero end the game.

Clayton Richard (3-7) earned his first road win of the season, scattering eight hits and giving up one run over seven frames. He walked one and struck out three.

Cameron Maybin and Nick Hundley hit consecutive RBI singles in the sixth. Maybin then scored on a wild pitch by Felix Hernandez (4-5) and Cabrera's triple plated Hundley.

"That was big tonight to see that from those guys," said Padres manager Bud Black. "Maybin, Hundley Cabrera all came through in our four-run inning which was critical."

Chase Headley had an RBI single in the third inning for the Padres, who had dropped 15 of 19 coming in.

Hernandez missed his previous start due to lower back stiffness and has now lost four of his last five decisions. He was charged with five runs on nine hits over six innings.

"He had great life on his fastball, his secondary stuff was sharp," said Mariners manager Eric Wedge. "I felt like he had really good stuff out there tonight, looked strong, looked healthy, in that respect it was a good night for Felix."

Kyle Seager hit a game-tying RBI groundout in the fourth.
