SEATTLE, Wash. (AP) - Seattle has put an end to its seven-game losing streak by whipping the Oakland Athletics 7-to-1.

The A's actually led 1-to-0 after Nick Swisher's first-inning homer. But the Mariners grabbed the lead on Adrian Beltre's three-run double in the third before Jose Guillen added a two-run homer.

Ichiro Suzuki and Jose Vidro each had two hits and scored twice for the M's.

Felix Hernandez threw a season-high 120 pitches while holding the A's to a run and seven hits while striking out seven in seven innings. He's 7-and-6 this season, with three wins coming against Oakland.

Dallas Braden was tagged for four earned runs and seven hits in four innings to slump to 1-and-6.
