Sweeney's 2 homers lead Seattle's 15-8 rout

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) _ Mike Sweeney homered twice and drove in six runs

in the second-most productive game of his career, and the

offensively challenged Seattle Mariners busted out Friday night for

a 15-8 rout of the San Diego Padres.

Sweeney's three-run homer in the second off Wade LeBlanc (2-2)

capped a seven-run inning _ only the fourth time all season Seattle

had scored at least seven runs in a game. Sweeney then added a

two-run shot in the Mariners' five-run fifth inning, a startling

offensive display from a team that scored 12 runs total during an

eight-game losing streak in late April and early May.

Josh Bard homered and lined a two-run double for Seattle.

Cliff Lee (2-2) cruised to his second win with the Mariners,

despite allowing 11 hits and seven earned runs.
