ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- James Paxton pitched seven scoreless innings of two-hit ball and Robinson Cano drove in his first run for the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night in an 8-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels, completing a three-game sweep in the team's first series under new manager Lloyd McClendon.

Mike Zunino, Justin Smoak and Corey Hart all homered for Seattle.

Paxton (1-0) threw 99 pitches in his fifth big league start and struck out nine, including Josh Hamilton all three times he faced him.

Hector Santiago (0-1) was charged with four runs, four hits and three walks in five-plus innings.
