San Diego, CA- After rallying back to defeat the Mariners 2-1 last in their first game at home since the loss of Tony Gwynn, the San Diego Padres rallied back once again yesterday to defeat the Mariners 4-1.

The Mariners scored their only run of the game in the top of the fifth on a two-out RBI single by Robinson Cano to give the Mariners a 1-0 lead.
After being held scoreless for the first six innings by Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez, the San Diego Padres were able to get to the Mariners bullpen in the seventh scoring four runs to give the San Diego Padres a 4-1 lead.
Chris Denorfia would then give the San Diego Padres the lead on a pinch-hit RBI single to score Maybin to give the Padres a 2-1 lead. Jace Peterson and Chris Denorfia would score on a two-run single by Everth Cabrera to extend the San Diego Padres lead to 4-1.
