SEATTLE, May 29 (UPI) -- The San Diego Padres scored three runs in the sixth inning and Edinson Volquez pitched into the eighth Tuesday to knock off the Seattle Mariners 6-1.

Volquez (4-5) gave up one run on four hits and struck five for his first win since May 5 and provide a welcome win for the Pads, who had lost five of their previous six games.

Rookie Jedd Gyorko had a two-run homer and veteran Mark Kotsay drove in two runs in the San Diego sixth with single to center field.

The Mariners led 1-0 after an RBI sacrifice fly by Jesus Sucre in the second inning, but San Diego scored twice in the fourth on Gyorko's homer and added a single run in the fifth.

Brandon Maurer (2-7) took the loss for the Mariners, who have lost nine of 11 games. Maurer allowed six runs – five earned – on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings.
