SEATTLE (AP) - Carlos Peguero hit a mammoth homer in his first at-bat of the season and Kyle Seager had a two-run homer to help the Seattle Mariners beat the Los Angeles Angels 6-0 on Thursday night.
 
Peguero hit his solo shot on a 3-2 pitch from Garrett Richards (1-1) in the third, 451 feet to deep center. The only two longer home runs in the stadium's 12½-year history were 462 feet by San Francisco's Barry Bonds (June 16, 2006) and 460 feet by Mariners' Raul Ibanez (June 20, 2007).
 
It's believed Peguero is the second player ever to hit the centerfield batter's eye. The other was Mike Napoli in 2008.
 
Rookie Brandon Maurer (2-3) went 6 1-3 innings to pick up the victory. He allowed seven hits, struck out six and walked one.
