SEATTLE, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- A three-run homer in the first by Kendrys Morales Friday ignited Los Angeles to a 9-1 victory over Seattle, extending the Angels' win streak to four games.

Morales hit his 18th home run of the season off Kevin Millwood (4-12) after Torii Hunter had delivered a one-out single and Albert Pujols had drawn a walk.

Pujols also had an RBI with a second-inning, infield single, Morales drove in his fourth run of the game with a single in the fourth and Hunter doubled home another run in the sixth.

Los Angeles tacked on three runs in the ninth, two of them coming on a homer by Bobby Wilson, and the Angels finished with 16 hits.

The Angels won for the eighth time in 10 games, a stretch that has come after they lost seven out of nine.

Dan Haren (9-10) gave up five hits and an unearned run over seven innings to get the victory.
