SEATTLE (AP) - Robinson Cano hit a two-run home run, and Jesus Montero added his first major league homer in more than a year as the Seattle Mariners beat the San Diego Padres 6-1 on Tuesday to complete a two-game series sweep.
Roenis Elias pitched seven strong innings, and Jesus Montero also homered for Seattle. Elias (6-5) allowed three hits and struck out six without a walk while facing the minimum amount of batters in five innings.
Dominic Leone and Danny Farquhar each pitched an inning in relief.
Elias' only mistake was allowing a solo home run to Rene Rivera in the second.
Cano's fourth home run of the season gave the Mariners a 4-1 lead in the fifth. That was enough to chase San Diego starter Eric Stults after the inning.
Stults (2-9) allowed four runs, six hits and a walk. The left-hander struck out five and threw a season-high 102 pitches.
Montero gave the Mariners a 2-1 lead in the second. The home run came during Montero's first career start at first base and was his first since May 8, 2013.
The former top catching prospect was suspended 50 games for his connection to the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug investigation last year and began the season at Triple-A Tacoma.
Kyle Seager drove in two more runs for the Mariners in the seventh with a two-out, bases-loaded double down the line in left field. Seager leads Seattle with 47 RBI, the most by a Mariners player through 71 games since Raul Ibanez had 49 in 2007.
The Padres have scored two runs or fewer 10 times in 15 games and have recorded four hits or less 13 times this season.
NOTES: The teams will begin a two-game series in San Diego on Wednesday. Seattle RHP Felix Hernandez will face San Diego RHP Andrew Cashner in the opener. ... Padres manager Bud Black said INF Jedd Gyorko (plantar fasciitis) isn't close to returning from the disabled list, despite being eligible to be reinstated on Friday. Gyorko might be able to remove his walking boot on Friday.
