ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Brad Miller hit two homers, Erasmo Ramirez pitched seven innings of six-hit ball, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Los Angeles Angels 8-3 Tuesday night for their second win of the season.

Justin Smoak hit a three-run double, while Abraham Almonte and Dustin Ackley also had RBI doubles as the Mariners followed up their 10-3 win on opening day with another surprising offensive barrage.

Seattle scored 16 runs in its first 15 innings of the year while beating Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson, their AL West rivals’ two best starters.

Wilson (0-1) labored into the sixth inning for the Angels, who are off to their first 0-2 start since 2001.

Raul Ibanez hit a two-run homer and Josh Hamilton had two hits for the Angels.
