TORONTO, May 4 (UPI) -- Michael Saunders homered twice and Dustin Ackley hit a grand slam Saturday in the Seattle Mariners' 8-1 rout of Toronto.

Saunders led off the game with a solo blast and Ackley put the Mariners ahead 5-0 with the fourth-inning grand slam.

Saunders connected for a second time in the fifth and later added a run-scoring double to finish with three RBI for the Mariners, who improved to 6-1 in their last seven games.

Hisashi Iwakuma (3-1) allowed one run on five hits over seven innings to earn the win, issuing three walks while striking out five.

Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey (2-5) was pounded for seven runs on six hits over six frames, dropping his third straight start as Toronto fell for the 12th time in 15 contests, including four in a row.

Munenori Kawasaki provided the Blue Jays' only RBI.
