Angels Go Deep Three Times To Down Mariners

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) – Peter Bourjos, Bobby Abreu and Hideki Matsui all homered in the sixth inning and Ervin Santana was solid through 7 2/3 innings as Los Angeles downed Seattle, 5-3, to open a three-game divisional set at Safeco Field.

Santana (14-9) allowed two runs on eight hits while striking out four and not issuing a walk and Fernando Rodney worked through a somewhat shaky ninth inning to record his seventh save for the Angels, who got back into the win column after being swept in a three-game series over the weekend by Baltimore.

David Pauley (2-6) suffered the loss after allowing four runs on six hits while walking one and striking out one over six innings for the Mariners, who have dropped three out of four and seven of their last nine.

Ichiro Suzuki went 2-for-4 for his major league-leading 52nd multi-hit game of the season and added a pair of stolen bases in defeat.
