Bobby Abreu had three hits and a pair of RBI to help Matt Palmer win his fifth straight start as the Los Angeles Angels took advantage of sloppy play by the Seattle Mariners to win 6-5 on Tuesday night.

Abreu had a first-inning RBI single and sixth-inning, run-scoring double. He also singled and scored in the fifth. Maicer Izturis had a pair of singles and scored three times as the Angels pounded out 14 hits.

Palmer (5-0) lasted only five innings, allowing seven hits and five runs. The rookie walked three and struck out two. Brian Fuentes struck out the side in the ninth to pick up his 10th save in 12 opportunities. He is now second in the league in saves.

Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 615th career homer.

Slumping Mariners slugger Adrian Beltre was back in the lineup one day after manager Don Wakamatsu rested him. The third baseman was hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts. He is now in an 0-for-17 slump.

The Angels jumped on Felix Hernandez (4-3) for a pair of first-inning runs. Chone Figgins singled, Izturis walked then Abreu and Torii Hunter followed with consecutive RBI singles.

The Mariners regained the lead on homers by Griffey and Ronny Cedeno, but the Angels tied it in the fourth on Howie Kendrick's RBI single.

Ichiro Suzuki extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a two-out double in the fourth, scoring Kenji Johjima from second as the Mariners once again took the lead.

But then the Mariners porous defense let them down. Izturis and Abreu opened with singles and advanced on Torii Hunter's groundout. Izturis then raced home on Hernandez's wild pitch. Kendry Morales walked then Mike Napoli hit a potential double-play ball to second baseman Jose Lopez, who booted it.

Abreu scored for a 5-4 lead. It was the Mariners' league-leading 34th error this season.

The Angels stole a season-high five bases and also were thrown out a season-high three times.

Notes: Angels' OF Vladimir Guerrero, who has been on the DL since April 16 with a torn right pectoral muscle, will begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga Friday. If he does not have a setback, the plan is to have him rejoin the team Monday in Anaheim. Also joining him at Rancho Cucamonga will be RHP Kelvim Escobar, on the DL all season after right shoulder surgery. He is expected to pitch in the game. Escobar can not come off the DL until at least June 4. Mariners LHP Ryan Rowland-Smith (triceps tendinitis) is close to a rehab assignment. He threw 55 pitches in an extended spring game Tuesday in Arizona. Manager Don Wakamatsu expects Rowland-Smith to be sent to Triple-A Tacoma Saturday and said that he could rejoin the team the first week of June. The crowd of 16,002 was a season-low at Safeco Field and third lowest in the stadium's 10-year history.
