MLB: San Diego 7, Seattle 1

SAN DIEGO, June 13 (UPI) -- Homers by Adrian Gonzalez and Oscar Salazar keyed a 10-hit San Diego attack Saturday and the Padres downed Seattle 7-1 in an inter-league game.

Gonzalez smacked a two-run shot in the first inning to give the Padres a lead they wouldn't surrender, and Salazar launched a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the eighth to cap San Diego's fifth win in six games.

Wade LeBlanc (4-4) won for the first time in three career starts against the Mariners, bouncing back from a poor outing against them in May. He held the M's to one run on seven hits and three walks over six frames, and struck out four.

Cliff Lee (4-3) pitched well but took the loss for Seattle, yielding three runs on seven hits in seven innings of work.

Ichiro Suzuki went 3-for-5 and drove in the Mariners' only run, raising his batting average to .343.
