PEORIA, Ariz. -- Down 8-2 going into the bottom of the 7th, the Mariners mounted a furious rally to top the Los Angeles Angels 9-8 in Monday's spring training game in Peoria, Arizona.

Alex Liddi and Brendan Ryan homered for the Mariners and Justin Smoak doubled and singled.

The Angles jumped out to the quick lead off M's pitcher Jeremy Bonderman, who gave up a walk and two hits, including a 3-run home run to Hank Conger.

Conger also doubled and singled as part of his 5-RBI day.

The 30-year-old Bonderman is trying to secure a spot in Seattle's rotation after missing the past two seasons.

"It wasn't the way I wanted it go, but it was good to get out there and get my feet wet again," Bonderman said. "It was good to get the first one out of the way, but it's no excuse. I have to go out there and get outs."

Rookie of the Year Mike Trout singled in his first at-bat this spring and scored twice for the Angels.
