 SEATTLE (AP) - Justin Germano is taking full advantage of his opportunity to start for the San Diego Padres.
The right-handed Germano, promoted from Triple-A Portland on May 8 to replace injured Clay Hensley (strained groin), held Seattle to an unearned run and six hits in six innings and the Padres beat the Mariners 2-1 on Sunday.
Germano (2-0) has allowed one run and 12 hits in 19 innings for a 0.47 earned run average.
He outpitched Mariners ace Felix Hernandez (2-2), who was making his second start after spending nearly a month on the disabled list with a strained right elbow. Hernandez worked five innings, allowing eight hits and two runs. He walked three and struck out nine.
After allowing back-to-back singles to lead off the ninth inning, closer Trevor Hoffman settled down to get the final three outs for his 11th save in 13 opportunities.
Adrian Gonzalez gave the Padres a 2-1 lead in the third with an RBI single to center, scoring Marcus Giles, who led off with a double. Hernandez, on a pitch count in the 95-pitch range, threw 30 pitches in the inning. He yielded two more singles, threw a wild pitch and walked a batter before getting out of the inning by inducing a groundball by Kevin Kouzmanoff.
Gonzalez had opened the second inning with a ground-rule double to left-center. Josh Bard drove him home with another ground-rule double with one out.
The Mariners tied the game in the second on Jose Lopez's two-out single to center, scoring Yuniesky Betancourt from second.
The Padres had a chance to add on in the eighth with two runners on and one out against reliever Sean White. But Jose Cruz, Jr. bounced out to first and Mike Cameron struck out. San Diego left 15 batters on in the game.
Notes: With his leadoff single, Ichiro Suzuki extended his hitting streak to 13 games. He also extended his multi-hit streak to seven games with an eight-inning single. Suzuki is hitting .567 (17 of 30) during those seven games. ... the Padres leads the all-time series with the Mariners, 28-25. Seattle still holds a 99-80 interleague play record. ... the 24-year-old Germano, traded twice and released once in his young career, was 4-0 in five starts at Portland with a 1.69 ERA prior to being called up.
