Volquez, Padres beat Mariners

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Edinson Volquez pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning and Alexi Amarista hit a two-run double as the San Diego Padres beat the Seattle Mariners 2-0 on Sunday.

 

Volquez (4-7) was in command as he allowed just four singles in 6 2-3 innings and was not hurt by the control issues that have hampered him this season.

 

Volquez, who leads the majors in walks with 55, walked three but was rarely stressed by the Mariners. The right-hander combined with three relievers for the five-hitter.

 

Huston Street pitched a perfect ninth inning for his 10th save in as many chances.

 

It was an emotional day for the Padres, who found out that longtime bullpen coach Darrel Akerfelds died from pancreatic cancer on Sunday morning.
