MINNEAPOLIS, May 31 (UPI) -- Hisashi Iwakuma gave Seattle its second straight outstanding pitching effort Friday in sending the Mariners to a 3-0 victory over Minnesota.

Iwakuma (6-1) allowed seven hits and struck out five in his 7 2/3 scoreless innings. Tom Wilhelmsen worked a perfect ninth for his 12th save.

Seattle posted a 7-1 win over San Diego Thursday in a game that saw Felix Hernandez give up three hits in eight innings. The Mariners have won four out of six.
