Seattle became the final major league team to open at home and continued its early success against the Angels. After fans at Safeco Field gave Russell Wilson, Pete Carroll and other members of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks a raucous ovation, the Mariners gave the sold-out crowd some winning baseball to cheer for.

Seattle improved to 4-0 against the Angels this season. Seattle scored four times with two outs in the third inning capped by Hart’s homer off starter Hector Santiago (0-2). Hart added a line-drive solo shot in the seventh.

Seattle starter James Paxton (2-0) gave up two first-inning homers, then retired 14 straight. He left in the sixth inning after straining a muscle on the left side of his back.
