ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Jesus Montero homered twice off major league ERA leader Jered Weaver, and Jason Vargas outpitched his former Long Beach State teammate to give the Seattle Mariners a 4-1 win Sunday over the Los Angeles Angels.
Weaver (15-2) had won nine straight outings. He fell one shy of Chuck Finley's 1997 franchise record for consecutive starts won.
Vargas (13-8) allowed a run and seven hits over 8 1-3 innings. The left-hander gave up a one-out triple in the ninth by Howie Kendrick before Tom Wilhelmsen came in and got the final two outs for his 16th save in 18 chances.
