Recap: Seattle vs. LA Angels

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Dan Haren allowed an unearned run over seven strong innings as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim routed the Seattle Mariners, 9-1, in the opener of a three-game set Friday at Safeco Field.

Haren (9-10) scattered five hits and struck out three without walking a batter to snap a four-start winless skid.

"When he got the lead, he just pounded the zone, made pitches and seven strong innings is great to see," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of his starter.

Kendrys Morales clubbed a three-homer and knocked in four overall, Bobby Wilson smacked a two-run shot, and Torii Hunter registered four hits, an RBI and a run scored for the Angels, who won their fourth straight contest.

Kevin Millwood (4-12) was charged for five runs -- four earned -- on nine hits and four walks over five frames.

John Jaso knocked in the lone run for Seattle, which snapped an eight-game home winning streak.

"We just didn't have a good day as a ball club...just one of those days," said Mariners manager Eric Wedge. "You play this many games, every now and again you're going to have a tough one and we just didn't have it today."

The Angels jumped on Millwood early as Hunter smacked a one-out single, Albert Pujols walked and Morales followed with a blast into the seats in right-center field to give the Halos a 3-0 lead.

Seattle answered in the bottom half when Franklin Gutierrez singled, moved to third on an errant pickoff attempt from Haren, and then scored on Jaso's two- out single to right field.

Morales plated another run in the fourth with a single into center field to score Mike Trout, who had walked to start the frame.

The Angels tacked on one more in the sixth when Trout singled, stole second and score on Hunter's double into left field.

The visitors added three more in the ninth as Alberto Callaspo doubled home Erick Aybar, who tripled to start the frame, before Wilson launched a two-run blast into left field for a 9-1 advantage.

Game Notes

Haren's last win came on July 27 against the Tampa Bay Rays ... The Angels have won their last six games at Safeco Field ... Trout scored three runs which gives him 106 on the year, breaking the Angels' single-season rookie- record set by Devon White back in 1987 (103).
