Hernandez two-hits Padres in Mariners win

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) - Felix Hernandez pitched a two-hitter to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 5-0 win over San Diego on Tuesday night, handing the Padres a record-setting 12th straight interleague loss.

Franklin Gutierrez and Adrian Beltre each hit solo homers for the only offense Hernandez would need as he threw his third career shutout and sixth career complete game.

Hernandez (7-3) allowed only a leadoff single to Kevin Kouzmanoff in the third inning and Tony Gwynn Jr's leadoff single in the ninth. Kouzmanoff got to third with two outs but Hernandez retired Luis Rodriguez on a fly ball.

San Diego set a major-league record with its 12th straight loss in interleague play to snap a tie with the New York Mets.
