Mariners Vs. Angels Final Score: Jesus Montero Socks It To L.A. In 4-1 Win

The weekend's three-game series between the Seattle Mariners and the Los Angeles Angels in Southern California was a very unlikely series. It started with the Mariners blowing a five-run lead behind Felix Hernandez and ended with them defeating the Angels' best starter, Jered Weaver, to take the series. The Mariners won the rubber game on Sunday, 4-1.

Jesus Montero led off the second inning with his 11th home run of the year to get Seattle on the board first. The lead didn't last long, as Vernon Wells tied things up in the bottom of the second with a sacrifice fly to score Howie Kendrick. Somewhat surprisingly, that would be the only run the Angels would score in support of Weaver.

In the top of the six, Montero hit his second home run of the game, this time a two-run shot that put the Mariners on top for good. Chone Figgins hit an RBI triple in the top of the ninth for a big insurance run.

Montero and Figgins had two of Seattle's five hits in the game. Jason Vargas pitched another great game, improving to 13-8 after going 8.1 innings and giving up one run on seven hits and one walk.

Mariners Vs. Angels Final Score: King Felix Falters In 6-5 Loss

The Seattle Mariners opened up a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night with their most favorable pitching matchup. Unfortunately, the Mariners were not able to make a five-run lead for Felix Hernandez hold up and suffered an embarrassing walk-off 6-5 loss.

The Mariners jumped out to a big early lead after scoring five runs in the third inning. All five runs came on two Seattle home runs; a two-run shot from Dustin Ackley and a three-run shot from John Jaso.

Mike Trout got the Angels right back in the game in the bottom of the third, blasting a three-run homer to left-center field to cut the lead to 5-3. It was Trout's 21st homer of the season. In the fifth, Trout tied things up with a two-run sacrifice fly.

The Angels loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth and scored the walk-off win when Seattle reliever Josh Kinney threw a wild pitch that allowed Peter Bourjos to score.

The Mariners will try to regroup and even the series on Saturday.
