SEATTLE (AP) -- Michael Morse hit an opposite-field two-run homer, his third home run in four games, Aaron Harang pitched six solid innings for his first win and the Seattle Mariners won their second straight series with an 8-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night.

After not winning a series for most of April, the Mariners went 5-2 on their homestand, taking three of four from the Angels and two of three from Baltimore.

Morse's homer was the highlight on a night when the Mariners scored four times with two outs off Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen (2-3). Michael Saunders had three hits and scored three times, while Kendrys Morales had three RBIs, including a two-run double in the sixth inning.

Harang (1-3) retired 12 of the first 13 batters he faced and took a one-hit shutout into the sixth inning.
