SEATTLE — Jered Weaver kept the Seattle Mariners hitless into the seventh inning and the Los Angeles Angels swarmed Felix Hernandez early in an 8-0 victory on Friday night to end a seven-game losing streak.
Weaver (4-1) held the first 22 Mariners hitless until 40-year-old Ken Griffey Jr. sent an 0-1 fastball bouncing through the infield well past first baseman Kendry Morales for a single with two outs in the sixth. Weaver allowed one other hit in his 7 1-3 innings.
Morales had a three-run double in the first. Juan Rivera, Howie Kendrick and Ryan Budde homered off Hernandez in a four-run fourth for the Angels.
The Angels arrived in town at 4 a.m. from a night game in Boston, but still ended their longest skid since 2001.
