Morse Lifts M's Past A's, 7-1

Posted:

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Michael Morse hit a three-run homer and a solo shot, Hisashi Iwakuma followed up Felix Hernandez's gem with an impressive outing of his own, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics for the second straight game to start the season, 7-1 on Tuesday night. 

Iwakuma struck out seven and didn't walk a batter. He gave up a leadoff homer by Yoenis Cespedes to the deepest part of center field leading off the second, then quickly regrouped and retired 15 of the final 16 hitters he faced.

Kyle Seager doubled twice among his three hits, drove in a run, scored a pair and reached base five times. Kendrys Morales added an RBI single in his first season for Seattle after six with the rival Los Angeles Angels. 

The Mariners are 2-0 for the eighth time in club history.
