SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Donaldo Mendez doubled leading off the sixth inning to break up Ryan Franklin's no-hit bid and Jake Peavy won his third straight start as the San Diego Padres beat the Seattle Mariners 3-1 on Sunday to take two of three from baseball's best team.
Peavy (7-5) and three relievers combined on a five-hitter. The Padres, who have baseball's second-worst record, also beat the Mariners 5-3 on Friday night, when Rondell White hit a grand slam
with two outs in the ninth.
Franklin (6-5), who doesn't have a complete game in 27 career starts, retired the first 10 batters before walking Mark Kotsay. The right-hander continued to keep the Padres off-balance until Mendez hit a sharp, curving liner in the sixth.
Third base umpire Joe Brinkman called it a hit, which seemed to surprise even Mendez, who eased up slightly rounding first, but then hustled into second. Mariners manager Bob Melvin came out to
argue and Franklin motioned that it should have been called foul.
Kotsay doubled just beyond the reach of right fielder Ichiro Suzuki with two outs to score Mendez, who had advanced on a sacrifice.
Winn walked with one out, stole second and advanced on third baseman Dave Hansen's two-out throwing error.
Peavy allowed four hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings. Franklin allowed one run and two hits in six innings, struck out five and walked one. Franklin came in with a 6.75 ERA in two relief
appearances at Qualcomm Stadium.
Rod Beck pitched the ninth for his third save in as many chances.
Suzuki hit an opposite-field double into the left-field corner in the third inning to extend his hitting streak to 18 games, five short of his career-high set in 2001. He finished 2-for-4.
