Recap


Mariners 4, Angels 1:
Jesus Montero homered twice and had three RBIs and Jason Vargas outpitched former college teammate Jered Weaver as visiting Seattle beat Los Angeles for the second straight day.

Montero hit a solo shot in the second inning and a tiebreaking two-run blast in the sixth as the Mariners ended Weaver’s 10-game winning streak.

Vargas (13-8) allowed one run and seven hits in 8 1/3 innings while winning for the sixth time in seven decisions. The former Long Beach State teammate of Weaver struck out five and walked one.

Vargas was removed after Howie Kendrick tripled off the base of the center-field fence in the ninth. Tom Wilhelmsen recorded the final two outs for his 16th save in 18 opportunities.

Weaver (15-2) gave up three runs and four hits in seven innings – allowing more than two earned runs for only the fifth time in 21 starts this season. He struck out five and walked three while losing for the first time since May 13.

Chone Figgins added a run-scoring triple off Ernesto Frieri in the ninth for Seattle, which concluded a nine-game road trip with a 3-6 mark.

Montero’s first homer was the lone hit off Weaver over the first 5 2/3 innings. John Jaso singled with two out in the sixth before Montero smacked a shot inside the left-field foul pole to give Seattle a 3-1 lead.

Vernon Wells hit a sacrifice fly to deep right in the second for Los Angeles’ run against Vargas.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The multi-homer game was the second of Montero’s career. He hit two homers against the Baltimore Orioles last September as a member of the New York Yankees. … Weaver dropped to 12-5 in 23 career starts against the Mariners. … Seattle 1B Mike Carp left the game in the sixth with tightness in his left hip. … Angels pitching coach Mike Butcher was ejected by home plate umpire Mike Estabrook for questioning balls and strikes in the first inning.
