HOUSTON (AP) -- Logan Morrison homered twice and tied a career high with five RBIs to help the Seattle Mariners cruise to an 8-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday.

The Mariners jumped on Collin McHugh (6-3) for five runs in the first inning, a day after Houston roughed up Felix Hernandez for eight runs in the opening frame in a 10-0 win on Friday night.

Morrison connected for his first homer since May 12, a two-out, three-run shot in the first that made it 5-0.

He didn't have to wait long for another one, launching a two-run drive in the third to almost the exact same spot in right-center field. It was the third multihomer run game of his career.

Rookie starter Mike Montgomery (1-1) allowed six hits and one run while walking three in six innings.
