DENVER, May 20 (UPI) -- Jesus Montero and Justin Smoak belted back-to-back homers Sunday and the Seattle Mariners completed an interleague sweep of Colorado with a 6-4 victory.

Leading 2-1 after one inning, Seattle broke the game open with three runs in third.

Ichiro Suzuki stroked a one-out double off Jeremy Guthrie (2-2) and, one out later, Montero belted a 1-1 pitch deep into the left-field stands to make it 4-1.

The next batter, Smoak, lifted a fly to right that just made it over the wall, and Seattle had its first back-to-back homers of the season.

Mike Carp also went deep for the Mariners, who had won only one of 13 road games coming into the interleague series.

Blake Beavan (2-4) earned the victory after allowing two runs on seven hits over five frames. He yielded one walk and fanned seven.

Guthrie finished by allowing six runs on seven hits in a six-inning effort.

Carlos Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and two RBI for the Rockies, who lost their fourth straight.
