Offense Fails Hernandez as Padres Beat Mariners

Posted:
 SAN DIEGO (AP) - Pinch-hitter Tommy Medica singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the San Diego Padres beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 on Wednesday night in their first home game since Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn died of cancer Monday.

The light-hitting Padres honored Gwynn before the game and then cobbled together just enough offense for their second win in 10 games.

Starters Felix Hernandez and Andrew Cashner pitched well but didn't get a decision. Hernandez struck out 10 and allowed only three singles in seven innings, with no walks. But he allowed the Padres to tie it at 1 on a wild pitch with two outs in the sixth.

Everth Cabrera started the winning rally by beating out an infield single on a chopper against Charlie Furbush (0-4). Cabrera was sacrificed over by Alexi Amarista and scored on Medica's liner to center. James Jones throw home was late and off line.
