    "Mr. Padre" Tony Gwynn was on the minds of many Monday in Seattle.

    The Mariners won the game 5-1, but it will be remembered more for what the host team did before the game than what they did during it.

    Seattle paid tribute to Gwynn with a video memorial before the game and even etched Gwynn's #19 into the infield dirt, right where the Hall-of-Famer got many of his 3,141 career hits, at the 5.5 hole between shortstop and third base.

    Chris Young, a former Padres pitcher, threw well against his old club. He tossed six scoreless innings for his sixth win of the year. Padres starter Tyson Ross (6-6) took the loss. He walked seven and gave up five runs, all earned.

    Kyle Seager's three-run homer in the first did most of the damage for the Mariners. Carlos Quentin got the Padres on the board in the ninth with his third home run of the season.

    The teams wrap up the short two-game series in Seattle Tuesday afternoon.
