Terribly sad news at Petco with announcement #Padres bullpen coach Darrel Akerfelds died of cancer at 50. Moment of silence before game.
Very sad to hear #Padres bullpen coach Darrel Akerfelds has lost battle w/ cancer. Great guy. Never sought attention. Just loved his job.
To the family of #Padres bullpen coach Darrel Akerfelds: Many, many people in San Diego and throughout #MLB are sorry for your loss.
“@tomkrasovic:To the family of #Padres bullpen coach Darrel Akerfelds: Many, many people in SD and throughout #MLB are sorry for your loss.”
#Padres bullpen guys carried Ak's #48 cammo jersey with them to the pen for the game. Ak was an inspiration to this team, sad day indeed.
Darrel Akerfelds, longtime #Padres bullpen coach, died today at the age of 50. He'd battled cancer for several years. Great man, huge loss.
Sad day at Petco as #Padres bullpen coach Darrel Akerfelds has lost his battle with pancreatic cancer at age fifty.
The #Padres held a moment of silence before the game for Darrel. His #48 jersey hangs in the 'pen today.

Moment of silence at Petco for Darrel Akerfelds, #Padres bullpen coach who died today of pancreatic cancer. Was M's first-round pick in '83.
I expect more offensive from the #Padres starting today. #notjoking
omg, just read the news of Akerfelds. Very sad day for his family and for the #Padres. Prayers for those that knew him.
#Padres didn't envision Cameron Maybin in No. 7 slot when they guaranteed him $25 million, but there he is today for the 11th time in '12.
Noesi out of a jam! Great patients by him #Mariners
Sending my prayers to the whole #Padres family. Bullpen coach Darrel Akerfelds lost his battle with pancreatic cancer this morning. RIP, AK.
#Padres continue to prove they are not worth watching. 2 runners LOB.
Hector Noesi thru three scoreless innings in San Diego on 3 hits with 5 strikeouts. Game tied 0-0.
AK you will be missed! It awesome to sit next to the bullpen and see him with the guys. #padres
#Mariners' bats need warming up, poping them in the microwave should do the trick!! #GoMariners
Another hit for Baker - stirrups must be working. Bases loaded, 0 out for #Padres, Maybin at the plate
Condolences to the #Padres, their fans, and the Akerfelds family. #RIPDarrelAkerfelds He will be sorely missed&will never be forgotten."
The #Padres have the bases loaded, nobody out in the 4th, Maybin at the plate. Over/under on runs scored here is 1.5. I've got the under.
This is the part where Noesi makes the Padres look like the mashers they aren't. #mariners #MLB #dontfallapart Hector
Simply cannot hit a ball any harder than Cameron Maybin just did. Unbelievable reaction time by Noesi to snag that, one down. #Padres
Maybin hit a rocket that should have scored 2, but pitcher Hector Noesi somehow snagged it. Amazing reflexes. 1 out, nobody in.
#Athletics pick up their 4th sellout of the season. (3 this series vs. #SFGiants) and opening night vs. #Mariners. 36,067 on hand today
The Jockey delivers: Off first pitch, bases-loaded double that short-hops LF wall. #Mariners went against the book, throwing him a K.
Both the #Mariners and #Sounders are down by 2…it's so hard to be a #SeattleFan!!
The warning track power of this #Mariners team is absolutely disgusting.
“@SU2C: Our hearts are with the @Padres and the Akerfeld family on the loss of Darrel Akerfeld.” #sandiego #padres #RIP
Mark kotsay is hitting 3rd for the #padres, no this tweet was not written in 2003
Nice catch Saunders! Now all we need are 2 runs!!! #Mariners
I've seen doormats with more personality than the guys doing this #Padres game.
Hector Noesi managed to get through five innings. 2 runs, 7 hits, 2 walks, 6 strikeouts. 94 pitches, 57 strikes.
RIP AK. He'll certainly be missed. Glad I got the opportunity to know him. #Padres
Ackley continues to look like he is trying way too hard, trying to swing for the fences, when he should spray the ball.. #Mariners
W/ Jamie he can step right into Noesi's rotation spot, #Mariners do need another lefty!!!
Joe Thatcher comes in for Edinson Volquez, who is done after 6-2/3 innings.
Edinson Volquez replaced by Joe Thatcher after a two-out walk to Montero in seventh, leading 2-0.
Volquez can put together outings like this and it just makes the games he blows up in more frustrating. #Padres
Line on Hector Noesi: 6 innings, seven hits, two runs, two earned runs, three walks, six strikeouts, 105 pitches
Thatcher comes in and gets Ichiro to ground out, 2-0 #Padres at the seventh-inning stretch.
I wonder if the mariners bats will wake up here come on guys #mariners
really sad that the #Mariners could lose another game to the worst offensive team in the major leagues.. #MLB
Furbush entering the game now for the #Mariners in the seventh. Still think he deserves another shot in the rotation.
#Padres su coach d Bullpen Darrel Akerfelds murio hoy d cancer en el pancreas solo tenia 50 a~os. #RIP #SoloBeisbol @tavonsky
Shift pays off, Amarista snags a line drive and doubles up Olivo #Padres escape the 8th unscathed.
It's gotta be a #hashtag for a #hashtagcup #GoMariners #mariners #MLB
#Padres leading the #Mariners 2-0 in the top of the 9th. Huston Street on to close it out.
#Padres 2, #Mariners 0. Edinson Volquez pitches scoreless baseball into the 7th, gets two RBI from Alexi Amarista.
One might think that the #Mariners dropping 5 of 6 to the worst team in baseball would make them, in fact, the new worst team in baseball.
I tried to believe Hector Noesi but I think I'm finally giving up.
#Mariners fall to the #Padres. FINAL: 2-0. Home tomorrow vs. #Athletics at 7:10pm. #GoMariners
If the #Padres were an AL team, they'd be over .500! #SmallSampleSize
#Mariners lose 2-0 to San Diego. Fall to 31-43 on the season. 10 game homestand awaits.
Seattle sports sucks! #Sounders #Mariners ahhhhh tired of this bs
The #Padres winning interleague record is deceiving. Win 5 of 6 from the #mariners and suck against everyone else
“@tyjroberts: Thank god the #Mariners got rid of that terrible R.A Dickey.” if he was any "good", he would have 2 no hitters this season. Ha
