Seattle Mariners

Mariners lose again; 4 and counting

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Kendry Morales hit an early three-run double and Jered Weaver pitched well into the seventh inning of the Los Angeles Angels' fifth victory in six games, 6-3 over the Seattle Mariners last night.

Juan Rivera added a late two-run homer, and Brian Fuentes bounced back from a blown save one night earlier to earn his American League-leading 40th save for the Angels. The victory kept their AL West lead at 4½ games over the surging Texas Rangers. Kenji Johjima and Jose Lopez hit solo homers for the Mariners, who have lost four in a row.

Weaver added to his career-best victory total with another outstanding start just when the Angels needed an ace. The right-hander yielded seven hits, struck out eight and didn't walk a batter.

The Angels will try to complete a sweep of the Mariners in tonight's series finale. Left-hander Ryan Rowland-Smith is scheduled to start for Seattle against LA right-hander John Lackey.
