Moore, bullpen drive Mariners’ 7-4 win over Angels

SEATTLE (AP) – Mitch Haniger, Dylan Moore, and Tom Murphy homered, Seattle’s bullpen earned its ninth win this season, and the Mariners beat the Los Angeles Angels 7-4 on Friday night.

Shohei Ohtani hit his eighth home run for the Angels, who chased Seattle starter Chris Flexen after four innings.

Four Mariners relievers combined to hold Los Angeles to one run and two hits in five innings.

Drew Steckenrider (2-1) entered in the fifth and retired six straight batters, striking out the side in the sixth. Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon had words for plate umpire Lance Barrett in the inning after called third strikes. Casey Sadler and Anthony Misiewicz contributed 1-2-3 frames as the bullpen improved to 9-4.

Haniger hit his sixth career leadoff homer.

Moore homered in the second to tie it at 2, drove in Ty France with a single in the third to make it 3-all, and manufactured a run in the sixth to give Seattle a two-run lead. He drew a walk, advanced on Junior Guerra’s wild pitch, stole third, and scored Kurt Suzuki’s errant pickoff throw on a catcher.

The Mariners overcame Flexen’s early struggles, giving the Angels a 2-0 first-inning lead on RBIs from Rendon and Jared Walsh. Ohtani’s homer put them ahead 3-2 in the third.

Tom Murphy’s fourth-inning solo homer ended the night for Angels starter Andrew Heaney (1-2).
