Recap: LA Angels vs. Seattle

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Logan Morrison hit a three-run homer in the top of the ninth to lift the Seattle Mariners over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 3-1, in the finale of a four-game series.

Kevin Jepsen (0-2) recorded two quick outs to start the ninth. Kendrys Morales kept Seattle's at-bat going with a single and was replaced on the basepaths by James Jones. After Kyle Seager was intentionally walked, Morrison smacked a 1-1 pitch over the wall in right.

"That was the biggest hit of my life," said Morrison. "We're in a race and we need every win. We have a bunch of guys who don't know how to quit."

The Mariners sent Fernando Rodney to the mound in the bottom half. Hank Conger hit a solo homer to make it 3-1. Rodney ended up stranding a runner on third to record his 46th save of the season.
