SEATTLE, May 27 (UPI) -- Aaron Harang tossed a four-hit shutout and Seattle backed him with three homers Monday in the Mariners' 9-0 interleague whitewash of San Diego.

Harang (2-5) rebounded from a 3 2/3-inning, seven-run effort in his previous outing to dominate the Padres in a 122-pitch shutout, the seventh of his major-league career.

The veteran right-hander issued a pair of walks and struck out eight as the Mariners took the opener of a four-game home-and-home interleague series.

Michael Morse clouted a three-run homer while Jason Bay and Kelly Shoppach each added a solo shot in the victory.

Kendrys Morales went 3-for-5 with a two-run single as Seattle won a second straight after snapping an eight-game skid.

Padres starter Clayton Richard (0-5) was tagged for five runs on seven hits over six full frames.
