The Mariners scored their lone run against Dan Haren in the bottom of the first, on an RBI single from John Jaso.
Albert Pujols picked up an RBI single in the top of the second and Morales made it 5-1 in the top of the fourth, giving him four RBI in the game. Torii Hunter hit an RBI double in the top of the sixth for another insurance run.
