    SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Donaldo Mendez doubled leading off the sixth inning to break up Ryan Franklin's no-hit bid and Jake Peavy won his third straight start as the San Diego Padres beat the Seattle Mariners 3-1 on Sunday to take two of three from baseball's best team.

    Peavy (7-5) and three relievers combined on a five-hitter. The Padres, who have baseball's second-worst record, also beat the Mariners 5-3 on Friday night, when Rondell White hit a grand slam with two outs in the ninth.

    San Diego had only five hits, including Brian Buchanan's pinch-hit homer leading off the eighth against reliever Matt White.

    Bret Boone hit his 20th homer, a solo shot to left-center, off reliever Jay Witasick with two outs in the top of the eighth for Seattle's only run.

    Franklin (6-5), who doesn't have a complete game in 27 career starts, retired the first 10 batters before walking Mark Kotsay. The right-hander continued to keep the Padres off-balance until Mendez hit a sharp, curving liner in the sixth.

    Third base umpire Joe Brinkman called it a hit, which seemed to surprise even Mendez, who eased up slightly rounding first, but then hustled into second. Mariners manager Bob Melvin came out to argue and Franklin motioned that it should have been called foul.

    Kotsay doubled just beyond the reach of right fielder Ichiro Suzuki with two outs to score Mendez, who had advanced on a sacrifice.

    The Mariners threatened in the seventh, with Randy Winn reaching third with two outs. Witasick relieved Peavy and struck out Edgar Martinez, who was pinch-hitting for Franklin.

    Winn walked with one out, stole second and advanced on third baseman Dave Hansen's two-out throwing error.

    The Padres added a run in the seventh off reliever Rafael Soriano when Hansen doubled in Ryan Klesko, aboard on a leadoff single.

    Peavy allowed four hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings. Franklin allowed one run and two hits in six innings, struck out five and walked one. Franklin came in with a 6.75 ERA in two relief appearances at Qualcomm Stadium.

    Rod Beck pitched the ninth for his third save in as many chances.

    Suzuki hit an opposite-field double into the left-field corner in the third inning to extend his hitting streak to 18 games, five short of his career-high set in 2001. He finished 2-for-4.

    NotesPadres 3B Sean Burroughs sat out with a slightly injured groin muscle. Manager Bruce Bochy said Burroughs might be back Monday night against Colorado. Hansen started in his place. ... The Padres are 18-14 against Seattle since interleague play started in 1997, including 12-7 at home.
