Mariners Stun Padres With 14 Runs in 2 Innings to Win 16-13
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Kyle Seager, Dae-Ho Lee and the Seattle Mariners scored 14 times in two innings to erase a 10-run deficit and stun San Diego 16-13 Thursday night, the latest pratfall for a Padres team that was ripped in a radio interview by its executive chairman a day earlier.
Trailing 12-2 after five, the Mariners benefited from a bullpen meltdown by the Padres. Seager hit a bases-loaded, two-run single with one out in the sixth to chase starter Colin Rea, followed by Lee's impressive, pinch-hit, three-run homer off Brad Hand that landed in the second balcony of the Western Metal Supply Co. Building in the left-field corner.
The Mariners then sent 13 batters to the plate in their nine-run seventh.
