• Teams have ups and downs throughout the Major League Baseball season. But in one inning? Servais, whose team opens a two-game home series Tuesday night with San Diego at T-Mobile Park, was referring to the final inning Sunday against the defending World Series champion Atlanta Braves.

• The Mariners (79-61), who had split the first two games of the series, took a four-run lead into ninth. Diego Castillo walked the first two batters he faced and, with two outs, Atlanta’s Michael Harris II hit his second homer of the game, a three-run blast off the facade of the third deck in right field, to make it 6-5. Servais brought in closer Paul Sewald to get the final out. Pinch-hitter Eddie Rosario greeted Sewald with a single to right and Robbie Grossman followed with a two-run homer to give Atlanta a 7-6 lead. All seemed lost for the Mariners. But rookie Julio Rodriguez wouldn’t have it.

• Rodriguez hit a solo shot with one out off Braves closer Kenley Jansen — at 117.2 mph, it was the hardest ball hit off Jansen in the StatCast era (since 2015) by more than 3 mph — to tie the score Then an out later, Suarez went deep to give the M’s an amazing 8-7 walk-off win.

• The victory moved the Mariners into a virtual tie with Tampa Bay for the top spot in the American League’s wild-card chase.

• The Padres (77-64) have lost two in a row, including an 11-2 loss against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday at Petco Park.

• Right-hander Yu Darvish (13-7, 3.31 ERA) is scheduled to start the series opener Tuesday for the Padres. He’s won his past three starts after losing his previous three. Darvish is 6-4 with a 4.19 ERA in 13 career starts against Seattle.

• The Mariners plan to counter with right-hander Logan Gilbert (12-5, 3.23), who hasn’t allowed a run over 12 innings in winning his previous two starts. Gilbert’s only prior appearance against the Padres came in a 6-2 victory July 5 at San Diego. Gilbert allowed two runs — one earned — on six hits in 5 1/3 innings to earn the win.
