Recap: Seattle vs. Minnesota

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Hector Noesi went seven innings, Jesus Montero hit a two-run double and the Mariners defeated the Twins, 5-2, on Sunday in the finale of a three-game series.

Noesi (2-3) gave up one run on four hits and three walks while striking out five. Mike Carp hit a solo homer and Kyle Seager and Brendan Ryan had an RBI apiece for Seattle, which won the final two games of this series after dropping seven in a row.

Ryan Doumit hit two home runs for the Twins while Nick Blackburn (0-4) gave up five runs over six innings to suffer the loss. He has not won since July 8, 2011.

"I thought he was kind of feeling for the ball, wasn't aggressive until later on in the game, and when he got aggressive, he was pretty effective," Minnesota coach Scott Ullger said of Blackburn.

Seattle went ahead for good in the first inning. Dustin Ackley led off with a walk and Ryan followed with a single. Both runners advanced on Ichiro Suzuki's groundout, then crossed the plate when Montero doubled to left. Seager's line drive single scored Montero.

Carp began the second inning with his first homer of the season and Ryan followed Ackley's fourth-inning triple with a sac fly for a 5-0 lead.

"It's always nice to jump out early, take advantage of opportunities and get out in front like that," said Seattle manager Eric Wedge. "We had a couple guys step up for us in those RBI opportunities which is a good sign. I feel like we've got a lot of guys, offensively, heading in the right direction."

Doumit homered in the seventh and ninth innings to cap the scoring.

Game Notes

Seager has 10 RBI in his last five games...The Mariners have hit 16 home runs in the last 13 games...Doumit's homer in the seventh marked the Twins' first long ball since April 27.
