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 on Wednesday night.
Juan Rivera added a late two-run homer, and Brian Fuentes bounced back from a blown save one night earlier to earn his AL-leading 40th save for the Angels, whose victory kept their AL West lead at 4 1/2 games over the surging Texas Rangers.
Kenji Johjima and Jose Lopez hit solo homers for the Mariners, who have lost four straight.
Weaver (15-5) 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.
Ichiro Suzuki went 1 for 5 with a third-inning single, moving within four hits of his ninth consecutive 200-hit season. The Japanese star is in a 1-for-13 slump, however.
