Seattle Mariners' Mike Carp drives in a pair of runs with a single against the Kansas City Royals during the first inning of a game Thursday in Seattle.

 SEATTLE — Seattle starter Jason Vargas allowed one hit in eight innings to win his career-high 11th game, and Mike Carp had three hits to help the Mariners beat the Kansas City Royals 4-1 Thursday night.

Vargas (11-7) allowed just a fourth-inning double during his eight innings, while striking out five and walking three.

He retired the first 11 batters he faced before Billy Butler's 200th career double drove in Lorenzo Cain in the fourth. Vargas walked Cain, then fell behind 3-0 before Butler drilled a fastball to the gap in left-center.

Kansas City did not get a runner to second base against Vargas after the fourth.

Kansas City starter Luis Mendoza (4-7) threw five innings, allowed nine hits, four earned runs, walked three and hit a batter.

Tom Wilhelmsen pitched the ninth for his 12th save in 14 opportunities.
