SEATTLE, July 3 (UPI) -- Casper Wells' two-out, bases-clearing double in the seventh inning Monday rallied the Seattle Mariners to a 6-3 comeback win over Baltimore.

The Mariners trailed 3-1 entering the seventh, when Dustin Ackley and Ichiro Suzuki drew walks and Munenori Kawasaki singled to load the bases with two outs against Orioles starter Jason Hammel (8-4).

That brought up Wells, who sliced an 0-1 pitch into the right-center field gap, chasing home all three runners.

Ackley and Miguel Olivo homered for Seattle, which took the opener of a three-game series.

The rally made a winner of Steve Delabar (2-1), who tossed two scoreless frames in relief of starter Hisashi Iwakuma. Tom Wilhelmsen collected his seventh save.

Hammel ended up allowing four runs on seven hits in a 6 2/3-inning stint for Baltimore, which fell for the sixth time in seven games.

Chris Davis bashed a three-run homer for the Orioles.
