This was the kind of game the Angels thought they would be getting when they acquired Vernon Wells in January.

It also was the kind of game Wells thought he could find after endlessly watching himself on video earlier in the year.

Wells, who missed a month of the season with a right groin strain and only returned to the lineup last week, put a charge into the Angels with two homers, including a two-out, two-run tiebreaker in the seventh inning that carried the Angels to a 6-3 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday at Safeco Field.

"For a long time I was missing balls I thought I should be hitting," Wells said. "(In April and May) I looked at lots of video and didn't see anything wrong."

That changed in the past couple of weeks as Wells, who now has a week's worth of work under his belt since coming off the disabled list, saw some problems and made a few alterations in his batting approach.

"I finally started to straighten up a bit more at the plate," he said after realizing that was what he'd failed to see earlier in the video booth.

He already had started to hit the ball hard before he unloaded the two homers Monday.

The Angels' offense had accounted for just one June homer before the fireworks triggered by Wells' bat, and if you thought it was just another day at the office you didn't see Torii Hunter's celebration as Wells crossed the plate.
