Wil Myers belted a three-run homer to cap a seven-run seventh inning on Thursday afternoon to give the San Diego Padres a 10-7 win over the visiting Seattle Mariners in the first game of a doubleheader.
The Padres’ big inning came after the Mariners had scored four runs in the top of the frame. Seattle reliever Taylor Williams (0-1) retired the first two Padres in the bottom of the seventh.
Manny Machado, who hit two home runs earlier in the game, brought the Padres to within two runs at 7-5 with a two-run single. A passed ball and a wild pitch from Williams allowed Fernando Tatis Jr. to score and Machado to move to third. Machado then scored the tying run on Eric Hosmer’s single.
After Jake Cronenworth greeted Dan Altavilla with a single, Myers with his eighth homer of the season. It was the Padres’ 13th come-from-behind win of the season.
The Padres had tied the game at 3 in the bottom of the sixth inning on back-to-back homers by Tatis and Machado.
Machado homered in the third off Mariners emergency starter Ljay Newsome. He tied the score with his 10th homer of the season and his fourth in as many games. Just before Machado went deep, Tatis hit his 13th homer — a 448-foot shot that was only the third homer in the 17-year history of Petco Park to land on the roof of the Western Metal Supply Co. building.
