James Gillheeney and Danny Farquhar combined on a complete-game shutout Tuesday night, and Tacoma defeated the visiting Tucson Padres 4-0 at Cheney Stadium.
The Seattle Mariners farmhands combined to strike out 14 Padres while allowing just six hits. Gillheeney and Farquhar walked just two total batters.
The Padres (11-13) have been shut out twice in the last five games. Colorado Springs held Tucson scoreless in a 3-0 win at Kino Stadium Friday night.
The Rainiers (15-10) scored three of their four runs in the seventh inning against Tucson's Tyson Ross. The right-hander walked Carlos Peguero with one out. Former Sunnyside High School star Stefen Romero then ripped a double to center field, putting runners at second and third.
After Rich Poythress flew out, Carlos Triunfel drove both Peguero and Romero home with a single. Ross and fellow reliever Jorge Reyes walked the next three batters, bringing home another run.
Ross, in Tucson on a rehab assignment while he recovers from a left shoulder injury, surrendered three runs on three hits in 1 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out two. Outfielder James Darnell, also making a rehab start for the Padres, went 1 for 3 with a single. Dean Anna finished with a team-high two hits.
