Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Jesus Montero hit another home run off Angels ace Jered Weaver, leading Hisashi Iwakuma and the Seattle Mariners past Los Angeles 2-1 Sunday.

 

Carlos Peguero also homered against Weaver, and that was enough for Iwakuma, who pitched 7 1-3 scoreless innings.

 

Montero singled early, then hit his 15th home run of the season in the fourth. He has four homers in nine career at-bats against Weaver.

 

Only Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez have more home runs (5) against Weaver, but needed 25 and 24 at-bats, respectively, to do it.

 

Weaver (16-4) was pulled with two runners on base in the sixth. He threw 5 1-3 innings, allowing eight hits and four walks.
