ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Munenori Kawasaki had a three-run double and John Jaso had three hits, leading the Seattle Mariners to an 8-6 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.
Mariners starter Jason Vargas (7-4) gave up four runs and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings. He struck out a season-best eight.
Kyle Seager homered and Seattle had 10 hits overall. But the Mariners had to survive a late rally by the Angels, who scored twice in the sixth and two more runs in the eighth.
Mike Trout had a career-high four hits and a sacrifice fly and Kendrys Morales hit two home runs for the Angels.
Angels starter Ervin Santana’s struggles continued, and Monday’s start was his worst one yet. Santana (2-7) lasted a season-low 4 2-3 innings, and gave up seven runs and eight hits. He walked six and struck out only one.
