    Ex-Mariner hits three-run shot

    SEATTLE (AP) -- Jeff Cirillo hit a three-run homer against his former team and Adam Eaton pitched into the seventh inning, leading the San Diego Padres to a 5-1 win over the Seattle Mariners.

    Eaton (4-7) worked 6 1-3 solid innings on Sunday, allowing one run on three hits with four strikeouts and two walks as the Padres won two in the three-game series.

    After the eighth inning, the Mariners announced that they traded pitcher Freddy Garcia and catcher Ben Davis to the Chicago White Sox for catcher Miguel Olivo, minor league outfielder Jeremy Reed and minor league shortstop Mike Morse.

    Garcia, who suffered from a lack of run support, was 4-7 in 15 starts this year but had a 3.20 ERA.

    Cirillo put San Diego up 3-0 in the second, driving the first pitch he saw from Jamie Moyer (6-4) an estimated 413 feet, a high shot that sailed over the San Diego bullpen behind left field.

    Cirillo spent the last two seasons with the Mariners, and his struggles at the plate after he left the National League were a constant source of frustration for Seattle fans and the defensively sound third baseman.

    Cirillo always spoke of his affection for the city, and he makes his offseason home in suburban Redmond, Wash. After touching the plate on his home run trot, he raised his index finger and looked at someone in the crowd.

    The Mariners didn't help themselves in the field, with two errors leading to two San Diego runs.

    The Padres made it 4-0 with an unearned run in the third. Mark Loretta reached on a fielding error by Willie Bloomquist -- in the lineup to give shortstop Rich Aurilia a day off -- and scored on Jay Payton's bloop single to right.

    It was 5-0 in the fourth on another unearned run when Brian Buchanan scored on Loretta's sacrifice fly. He should've been out running to third, but Scott Spiezio mishandled a routine grounder by Khalil Greene.

    Eaton, who grew up just north of Seattle in Snohomish, Wash., improved to 4-1 in June, losing only to the surging Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Before that, he had lost six straight decisions dating to April 23.

    He held the Mariners to one hit until the seventh. John Olerud drew a leadoff walk, went to second when Edgar Martinez singled, took third on fly to the warning track in left and made it 5-1 on Jolbert Cabrera's RBI single.

    Scott Linebrink took over, getting a fly by Spiezio and a strikeout of Dan Wilson to end the threat.

    Moyer threw on two days' rest after working three relief innings in Seattle's 18-inning loss Thursday at Texas. He went five innings, allowing five runs -- three earned -- on four hits with two walks and three strikeouts.
