In his third career start, Jesse Hahn excelled once again. The young pitcher went a career best 7 innings, allowing only a single unearned run on 5 hits and 2 walks. He matched the strikeout total of his previous start, sitting down 7 Mariners. Seattle's starter, Erasmo Ramirez, had a great outing as well, throwing 6 shutout innings, giving up a pair of walks and hits in the process.

Hahn's only real trouble came in the fifth inning. He gave Brad Miller a free pass to start the inning before striking out Ramirez. Miller reached second when Everth Cabrera missed the catch. James Jones struck out right after that, which should have ended the inning, but Cabrera's misplay allowed Robinson Cano to come to the plate. His line drive single put the Mariners up 1-0.

Hahn shut down the opposition for the next two innings, but after 93 pitches, he was done for the day. So the offense stepped up in the bottom of the seventh to get him a win. Tommy Medica and Cameron Maybin hit back-to-back triples to knot the game at one. Carlos Quentin drew a walk and was replaced by pinch runner Jace Peterson. Chris Denorfia put the Padres on top with a single to center, sending Maybin home and putting Peterson on a second. The runners advanced on Will Venable's ground out before scoring on a line drive single from Cabrera. With the Friars up 4-1, Joaquin Benoit and Huston Street came in to mop up the mess. For the second year in a row, the Vedder Cup has ended in a draw.

The Dodgers come to town tomorrow, and Ian Kennedy will take the mound to start the series. First pitch is at 7:10 PM.
