Mariners Fall 5-1 in Second Night of Wedge Return

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Mike Trout hit his 22nd home run and Jason Vargas allowed one run in 6 1-3 innings and the Los Angeles Angels earned a 5-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night.

The Angels jumped on top early against Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez (4-1). After a walk to Erick Aybar, Trout homered to give the Angels a 2-0 lead.

Right fielder Endy Chavez limited the early damage by robbing a would-be home run from Hank Conger in the second inning.

Ramirez and Vargas (7-5) traded scoreless innings until Los Angeles managed to extend the lead in the seventh.

Grant Green singled and J.B. Shuck doubled to put two runners in scoring position with one out.
