Cruz homered twice and the surprising Mariners overcame Mike Trout’s two home runs to beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-3 on Monday night.

(Cruz) feels good about his swing and where his body is at, which is good, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. For home run hitters, it goes in streaks. You see guys hit five, six, seven they just get in that groove. And he’s certainly in that groove right now. So, hopefully we can ride it as long as we can.

Ryon Healy hit a two-run shot for the Mariners, who chased Andrew Heaney early and won for the ninth time in 11 games. Seattle sits atop the AL West by a half-game over the World Series champion Houston Jonas Brodin Womens Jersey Astros.

After the game, the Mets released slumping first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, who struck out in all three at-bats Sunday. They will call up first baseman Dominic Smith and utilityman Ty Kelly from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday. Reserve catcher Jose Lobaton will be designated for assignment.Asdrubal Cabrera joins still-ailing Yoenis Cespedes as Mets’ injury Womens Dion Dawkins Jersey woes mount

Carrasco piled up 50 pitches in the first two innings, though he did whiff five batters. But he threw only eight pitches in the third and rolled the rest of the way.

That was weird, he said. But it was great … to get back to my rhythm.

Three relievers combined to work the final two innings, with Neil Ramirez retiring all three batters in the ninth to complete the two-hitter.

Giolito (4-7) threw more balls (47) than strikes (46) in giving up four runs and four hits in five-plus innings. The 23-year-old righty walked four to bring his season total to 43 as the White Sox opened a seven-game homestand on a losing note after taking two of three at Boston.
