Mariners Vargas baffles Angels, outduels Weaver

Quote:
Jason Vargas doesn't have the All-Star resume or sterling win-loss record of Jered Weaver, but the Mariners left-hander outpitched his former college teammate Sunday as Seattle knocked off the Angels, 4-1, on a 95-degree afternoon in Southern California.

Rookie catcher Jesus Montero hit a pair of home runs and Vargas did the rest as Seattle snapped Weaver's nine-win streak and dropped his record to 15-2 on the season.

"We know we've got to be good against a pitcher like that," said Vargas, who went 8 1/3 innings for his 13th win of the season. "We didn't really put the hurt on him, but when it counted, we scored. For us to win this series and go back home, it makes the road trip a little bit sweeter."

The Mariners took the series 2-1, a surprising turn of events after losing Friday's opener with Felix Hernandez on the mound. They wound up beating Dan Haren and Weaver to finish their road trip at 3-6 and are 53-63 overall.

I wonder how much this shakes up the Cy Young picture now.

JV has been getting screwed all season by his offense and the bullpen.

Seven innings, ONE EARNED, get the goddamn no decision.
