SAN DIEGO (AP) — Felix Hernandez tied his career high with 13 strikeouts in eight dominant innings to lead the Seattle Mariners over the San Diego Padres 6-1 on Sunday.

Hernandez (5-4) allowed one run and six hits as the Mariners won their fifth straight and completed a three-game sweep. Seattle held a commanding advantage over San Diego in runs (14-2) and hits (32-14) while striking out 35 Padres batters in the series.

The Mariners have allowed two runs or less in their last seven games. They held the Padres to six hits or fewer in each of the three games.

Hernandez, the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner, kept up the stingy pace. He gave up three singles in the seventh for San Diego's only run, but struck out seven of nine batters during one stretch from the second through the fourth.
