Angels 4, Mariners 2

Associated Press  |  Last updated May 27, 2012
Kendrys Morales had three hits, including a home run, scored twice and drove in two runs to help the Los Angeles Angels complete their first four-game road sweep of the Seattle Mariners in 27 years with a 4-2 victory Sunday. C.J. Wilson (6-4) earned the win, allowing two hits and one run before leaving after six innings with a blister on his left hand. Jordan Walden, Ernesto Frieri and Scott Downs covered for him over the final three innings. Downs picked up his fifth save. The Angels have won season-high six straight games, the longest current streak in the majors. They last swept the Mariners in four games here from April 25-28, 1985. Morales and Mark Trumbo each hit solo home runs off Mariners starter Hector Noesi (2-6). Both came on 0-2 pitches. The Mariners have lost four in a row. Wilson, who struck out five and walked two, yielded a two-out double to Jesus Montero in the fourth followed by Justin Smoak's RBI single to right. Mike Trout opened the game with a single to right and stole second. He scored on Morales' two-out single to left. The Mariners closed it to one run in the seventh when Montero scored from third on a wild pitch. The Angels added a run in the ninth on Howie Kendrick's sac fly, scoring Morales. Notes: Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager made a quick, athletic move in the fifth to avoid being hit by Trout's splintered bat. Seager gathered up the grounder but spotted the bat barrel pin wheeling toward his head. He ducked under it, made a 360-degree turn and threw a strike to first. ... Alberto Callaspo's pinch-hit grand slam Saturday was the 6th allowed by the Mariners in club history but the first since May 6, 1988 (Detroit's Pat Sheridan off Mike Jackson.) ... Mariners CF Franklin Gutierrez will be sent to Arizona Monday to start his rehab from a torn right pectoral muscle in spring training. It's expected he will move along to Triple-A Tacoma before returning. ... Two-time batting champion and career .324 hitter Ichiro Suzuki went 0 for 3 against Wilson and has a career .196 average with 12 strikeouts against him.
