SEATTLE — Reid Detmers pitched seven smooth innings, Mickey Moniak hit his second home run in three days before getting injured, and the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Seattle Mariners 7-1 to split their doubleheader. David Fletcher homered and drove in three runs for the Angels, who dropped the opener 2-1 as Ty France hit a two-run homer and George Kirby struck out eight over six innings for Seattle. In the nightcap, Moniak made it 3-0 in the fourth with his third major league homer. The top pick in the 2016 amateur draft was acquired from Philadelphia at Tuesday's trade deadline in a deal for pitcher Noah Syndergaard. The 24-year-old outfielder also went deep Thursday against Oakland, but began the day a .131 career hitter in 99 at-bats over 50 big league games.
