Felix Hernandez Pitches Mariners Past Padres 4-2

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - (AP) Felix Hernandez came within one out of a complete game, Jose Lopez doubled in the go-ahead run and the Seattle Mariners snapped a five-game losing streak with a 4-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Hernandez (4-5) held the Padres in check other than a two-run, inside-the-park homer by Tony Gwynn in the third inning. Hernandez gave up four hits, tied his season high with nine strikeouts and walked one.

The right-hander was within one out of his second complete game this season when he was replaced by David Aardsma. Adrian Gonzalez reached on a one-out bloop single in the ninth before Scott Hairston forced him at second for the second out. Aardsma then replaced Hernandez and retired Nick Hundley for his 13th save in 17 chances.
