SEATTLE (AP) — Mitch Haniger and Ryon Healy each homered twice as the first-place Seattle Mariners shook off two homers by Mike Trout for the second consecutive night, beating the Los Angeles Angels 6-3 on Tuesday.

Trout took sole possession of the major league lead with 23 home runs. He also hit a pair in the Angels’ 5-3 loss Monday night at Safeco Field.

Mike Leake (7-3) allowed one run in six innings for Seattle, which has won three straight and 10 of 12 to remain a half-game ahead of Houston atop the AL West.

Edwin Diaz worked the ninth for his big league-best 25th save in 28 tries.

Haniger’s two-run homer in the fifth inning and Healy’s solo shot in the sixth gave the Mariners a 4-1 lead. Trout answered with his second of the game in the seventh, a drive that hit the scoreboard in left-center field to cut it to 4-3.

Seattle added insurance runs on Jean Segura’s RBI double in the seventh and Healy’s leadoff homer in the eighth.

Haniger lined an opposite-field solo shot off Jaime Barria in the first. Trout tied it at 1 with his homer in the fifth off Seattle starter Mike Leake.

That was the only run permitted by Leake, who gave up four hits while striking out four.
