MLB: Oakland Athletics at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

On this date in San Diego Padres history, the Friars were unfortunately on the wrong side of history in a high-scoring affair with the Seattle Mariners at Petco Park. After the first five innings, the Padres found themselves with an extremely comfortable 13-2 lead. This is when the chaos ensued.

Over the course of the next two innings, the Marlins scored 14 runs by the end of the seventh and all of a sudden the Padres’ lead was turned on it’s head. The score of 16-13 would hold for the final two innings and the Marlins completed the biggest comeback in franchise history.

The comeback was led by third baseman Kyle Seager who went 3-for-5 at the plate with five RBIs, right fielder Nelson Cruz who went 2-for-5 with a home run, and first baseman Dae-ho Lee that went a perfect 3-for-3 with 4 RBIs and his own home run.

The Padres offense was led by center fielder Jon Jay who went 5-for-6 with a pair of RBIs. He was joined by first baseman Wil Myers, left fielder Melvin Upton Jr., and second baseman Adam Rosales who all had led the team with two RBIs on the day.
