The San Diego Padres enter the series' final game against the Seattle Mariners on a three-game losing streak following a 3-8 loss in Game 1 on Tuesday night at home, dropping their record to 49-46.


However, they remain in 2nd place in the NL West and would be in the playoffs as the final Wild Card team in the National League.
