Recap: The Mariners fell to the San Diego Padres 6-1 after a rough outing by Brandon Maurer. They are now 8 games below .500.
Maurer went 5 2/3 innings, giving up 6 runs, 5 earned on 9 hits. He walked one and struck out two. Manager Eric Wedge wouldn't comment on any potential moves for Maurer during his post game press conference, only saying that it was something they would talk about internally.
Michael Morse left the game in the 5th inning after straining his quad, rounding third base. Manager Eric Wedge said that Morse would stay in Seattle tomorrow to have his leg looked at further and he expects him to "probably miss a few days."
The offense for the Mariners managed only 4 hits.
Turning Point: The turning point in the game came in the 6th inning, when Brandon Maurer threw a couple wild pitches which ultimately ended with the Padres loading the bases. Two runs scored before Charlie Furbush came into the game and by the end of the inning, the Padres were up 6-1.
Player of the Game: The Player of the game would have to be Jedd Gyorko of the Padres, who finished the day 1 for 3, but had a two run home run in the 4th to put San Diego up 2-1.
Also worth noting, Endy Chavez had a fantastic catch against the right field wall to save a home run in the 6th.
