ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Mark Trumbo continued his torrid rookie
season with a two-run homer and an RBI double, while Vernon Wells
hit his 20th home run as the Los Angeles Angels beat the Seattle
Mariners 7-3 on Monday night to put themselves within 2 1/2 games of
first place in the American League West. Dan Haren worked in and
out of trouble through six innings, allowing three runs and 10 hits
while striking out three and walking none. Anthony Vasquez gave up
seven runs – six earned – and six hits in 5-and-two-thirds innings
for the Mariners.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) – New Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman
Robert Gallery has a sprained knee and his availability for the
opener Sunday in San Francisco is in question. But Seahawks coach
Pete Carroll says he’s not the only newcomer with injury concerns.
Seattle wide receiver Sidney Rice is still being bothered by a sore
shoulder. While starting running back Marshawn Lynch and starting
middle linebacker David Hawthorne are expected to return to
practice tomorrow, Carroll says he’s still unsure if Rice will be
able to return to practice.

SEATTLE (AP) – For coming away with a win, Steve Sarkisian was
noticeably irritated. Washington’s coach was irked yesterday with
what he described as his team’s lack of energy in Saturday’s
precarious 30-27 win over Eastern Washington. It was Washington’s
first season opening win since 2007. But Sarkisian says the Huskies
were playing not to lose and weren’t as aggressive as they needed
to be. That led to UW’s defense giving up more than 500 yards to
the defending FCS national champs and needing a late Desmond
Trufant intercept to escape.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) – The Seattle Seahawks claimed kicker Steven
Hauschka off waivers from Denver on Sunday after also picking up
offensive tackle Jarriel King from the New York Giants and
defensive tackles Landon Cohen and Al Woods from New England and
Tampa Bay. To make room on the roster, Seattle released kicker Jeff
Reed, defensive tackles Junior Siavii and Lazarius “Pep”
Levingston and linebacker David Vobora.
