ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Hisashi Iwakuma took a four-hitter into the eighth inning, John Jaso homered and the Seattle Mariners ended a five-game skid with a 7-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.

Angels rookie phenom Mike Trout robbed Miguel Olivo of a two-run homer in the eighth inning, timing his leap perfectly at the fence in straightaway center field and throwing to first base to double off Eric Thames. But all it did was prevent the Mariners from adding on to their 7-1 lead.

Iwakuma (3-3) allowed three runs and six hits in seven-plus innings and struck out four in his seventh major league start.
