Padres blow historic lead, Bumgarner helps own cause for Giants

Here's what's happening around the National League West.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The San Diego Padres looked like a sure bet to win on Thursday night against the Seattle Mariners, as they took the field for the sixth inning up 12-2 on the M's. A ten-run lead. Most would say that lead is pretty damn safe.

Not for the Friars.

Seattle plated five in the sixth and a whopping nine in the seventh to take the lead. The Mariners would go on to win 16-13. Gaslamp Ball has the recap.

Here's what else is happening around the National League West:

As usual, Madison Bumgarner did more than just pitch for the Giants.

81 games into his major league career, Corey Seager has put up impressive stats.

Tyler Matzek has not had an easy road to the major leagues.

Wellington Castillo has made a statement in All-Star voting.

Padres chairman Ron Fowler is fed up with his team's struggles.

Josh Sborz is performing well for Single-A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga.

Hunter Pence could be shelved for a while for the Giants.

Peter O'Brien launched a walk-off grand slam for Triple-A Reno.

Nolan Arenado started a flashy double play for the Rockies.
