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. After a walk to Erick Aybar, Trout homered to give the Angels a 2-0 lead. The Angels jumped on top early against Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez . In the second of a three-game series, Vargas gave up eight hits, walked one and had at least two runners on in two of the first four innings, but he kept Seattle scoreless through six and left with a 3-1 lead thanks in large part to Mike Trout's first-inning two-run homer. And that innate skill was on display Saturday night, when the veteran left-hander fired 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball despite allowing nine baserunners to lead the Angels to a 5-1 win at Safeco Field, as well as their first pair of back-to-back victories since Aug. 9-10. Ramirez nearly worked out of the jam as Green was thrown out at the plate on a grounder to second, but Chavez dropped a fly ball that would have ended the inning and allowed Shuck to score to increase the lead to 3-0.
