KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Casper Wells homered and drove in a
career-high five runs, all of them against Jonathan Sanchez, and
the Seattle Mariners beat up the Kansas City Royals and their
beleaguered starter in a 9-4 victory Monday night.

Justin Smoak also had a two-run homer off Sanchez (1-6), pulled
after allowing a season-high seven runs in a season-low 1 1-3
innings. The left-hander who once threw a no-hitter for San
Francisco gave up seven hits and a walk before he was yanked to a
chorus of boos.

Jason Vargas (9-7) took advantage of the rare output from one of
the American League's worst offenses. The left-hander gave up
homers to Salvador Perez and Billy Butler, but still managed to
last six shaky innings and win his second straight game.
