Smith launches homer on rocky day for Happ

PEORIA, Ariz. -- Justin Upton hit his third home run of the spring and Matt Kemp added two hits as the Padres defeated the Mariners, 6-4, on Tuesday at the Peoria Sports Complex.

Austin Jackson and Seth Smith each had two hits for the Mariners. Smith, who was traded from the Padres to the Mariners in December, had a home run in the third inning, his first of Spring Training.

Upton connected for a two-run home run in the third inning off Mariners left-hander J.A. Happ. Happ allowed five earned runs on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings with three walks and three strikeouts on 80 pitches.

"It's Spring Training. It wasn't very pretty. I think we all know he's better than that," said Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon. "His pitches were up. He had no command. Those things happen."

Smith's home run came off Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner. Cashner allowed three runs in four innings. He walked two and struck out four and got stretched to 82 pitches.

The Padres also got two hits from Will Middlebrooks.

Up next for the Mariners: Taijuan Walker continues his quest for the fifth-starter spot as Seattle hosts the Cubs in a 7:05 p.m. PT game at Peoria Stadium. The 22-year-old right-hander has yet to allow a run while giving up four hits with three walks and 13 strikeouts over 12 innings in four Cactus League starts. Relievers Danny Farquhar and Charlie Furbush are slated for relief in a game that will be televised live on ROOT Sports and MLB.TV.
