Rodríguez makes more history as Mariners top Padres 6-1


AP Sports Writer

SEATTLE (AP) — Julio Rodríguez continued to strengthen his rookie of the year campaign with his fourth leadoff home run of the season, Eugenio Suárez and Carlos Santana both added homers, and the Seattle Mariners beat the San Diego Padres 6-1. Seattle rebounded quickly from being shut out for the first time in nearly three months and split the brief two-game set with the Padres. Rodríguez hit the first pitch thrown by San Diego starter Mike Clevinger into the left-field bullpen for his 26th home run of the season. Rodríguez later nabbed his 25th stolen base, making him the third rookie in league history to have at least 25 steals and 25 homers in their first season.
