Mariners hold off Angels despite another Trout home run

Julio Homers and Jesse Winker had four hits as Seattle won its fourth straight win.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Julio Rodríguez hit a homer and scored two goals, Eugenio Suárez had three hits and an RBI, and Seattle defeated the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 on Friday night, despite Mike Trout’s sixth home run against the Mariners in that one Season.

Jesse Winker also had four hits as Seattle won its fourth straight win. Chris Flexen (3-8) drove more than five innings to record his first win since May 27.

Rodriguez lined an Oliver Ortega curveball just inside the foul pole in left field with an out in the fourth for a solo shot to extend Seattle’s lead to 3-0. He scored the Mariners’ first heat in a singles by Suarez against Michael Lorenzen (6-5) in the first.

Suarez had two doubles and gave Seattle a 4-1 advantage in game six when he came home from a Taylor Trammell goal.

Paul Sewald eliminated the Angels in ninth for his sixth save on eight occasions.

Luis Rengifo also had two goals for the Angels, who have lost three of their last four.

Trout, who went deep five times in Seattle’s five-game streak last weekend, hit a 93-mile fastball from Flexen and put it over the midfield wall in the fourth inning to put the Angels 3-1.

Trout has 22 home runs this season, which ranks second in the majors. It was also the 53rd of his career against Seattle, which saw him past Rafael Palmeiro the most against the Mariners.

Trout added an RBI triple in the sixth inning when rookie midfielder Rodriguez misinterpreted the liner and ran it over his head before rolling against the wall. He scored on Shohei Ohtani’s grounder to set the Angels on a run.

Flexen allowed three runs on five hits with three strikeouts and two walks. It was the first time in 13 games that a Seattle starter allowed more than two runs.

Lorenzen worked for three innings. The right-hander gave up two runs in four hits and also walked four. He had five strikeouts but faced 18 batters. It’s the first time in nine years that a Halos starter has thrown at least 85 pitches in the first three innings.

Trout has 100 career extra base hits against Seattle (36 doubles, 11 triples, 53 homers), which is the most against the Mariners. Palmeiro and Trout were level at 98 on Friday.

Trout pulled his 112th career walk in the eighth inning, which ties him most with Vladimir Guerrero in franchise history.

The Mariners went out of order all night, leaving 16 runners on base. The last time they stranded that many was on September 18, 2012 against Baltimore.

Seattle, 3-15 with runners in goal position, kept bases loaded in the third and eighth innings.

Justin Upton, who was released in spring training after more than four seasons with the Angels, had an RBI single in the third inning to extend Seattle’s lead to 2-0.

Mariners: 1B Ty France underwent an MRI on his left arm. He was out of the lineup after being involved in a collision during Thursday’s game in Oakland. France took the throw on the bag when it collided with Oakland’s Sheldon Neuse.

The angels designated OF Juan Lagares for the assignment and called OF Monte Harrison. Lagares re-signed with the Angels on May 8 but batted .183 in 20 games.

Mariners: RHP Logan Gilbert (7-3, 2.28 ERA) is fourth in the AL and seventh in the majors in ERA.

Angels: LHP Patrick Sandoval (3-2, 2.70 ERA) allowed a four-hit run in six innings against the Mariners last Saturday. Mariners hold off Angels despite another Trout home run
