Recap


Mike Carp hit a mammoth two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the Seattle Mariners a 5-3 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Angels on Monday.

Dustin Ackley led off the eighth with a double against lefthander Hisanori Takahashi (3-3) and the left-handed hitting Carp followed with a 432-foot blast to drop the Angels 3 1/2 games behind the first-place Texas Rangers in the American League West.

Tom Wilhelmsen (2-0) struck out two in the eighth and Brandon League retired Vernon Wells on a grounder with a runner on second in the ninth for his 32nd save.

Ackley went 3-for-3 and had two RBIs as the Mariners broke a three-game losing streak and handed the Angels just their third loss in 10 games.

Seattle tied the contest at 3-3 in the fifth when Ichiro Suzuki doubled and scored on Ackley’s two-out triple to right center.

Los Angeles tallied three times in the fourth on Mark Trumbo’s two-run homer and a run-scoring double by Erick Aybar.

The Mariners led 2-0 after Ackley’s first-inning sacrifice fly and Kyle Seager’s second-inning sacrifice fly.

Seattle’s Blake Beavan gave up three runs and eight hits in seven innings. Angels starter Joel Pineiro allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings.
