Jo Adell and Mike Trout starred as the Los Angeles Angels humbled the Seattle Mariners 16-3 in MLB.

Adell hit his first two home runs in MLB and Angels team-mate Trout drove in six against the Mariners on Saturday.

The Angels set a season high in runs as reigning American League (AL) MVP Trout had three hits, including a three-run homer in the seventh inning to help his team move 14-1 ahead.

Meanwhile, the New York Yankees edged neighbours the New York Mets 2-1 to avoid their longest slide in 25 years.

Clint Frazier scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning on Dellin Betances' wild pitch as the Yankees snapped a seven-game losing streak, having not lost eight in a row since 1995.
