Mariners Vs. Angels Final Score: Seattle Swept At Home With 4-2 Loss

The Seattle Mariners had a great chance to stay in third place in the American League West as they hosted the Los Angeles Angels in a four-game series, but came up empty in their home stadium. A 4-2 Angels win on Sunday completed the unfortunate four-game sweep.

Kendrys Morales got the Angels on the board first with an RBI single in the first inning, then struck again with a solo home run in the top of the fourth to make it 2-0 Los Angeles.

The Mariners cut the lead in half when Justin Smoak hit a two-out RBI single in the bottom of the fourth that scored Jesus Montero and made it 2-1 Angels, but Mark Trumbo led off the top of the seventh with a solo shot, his seventh of the year. Montero scored in the bottom of the seventh to make it 3-2, but Howie Kendrick would give the Angels an insurance run in the top of the ninth by hitting a sacrifice fly to drive in Morales.

Starter Hector Noesi performed admirably, allowing three runs in eight innings of work on five hits and two walks. Justin Smoak stayed hot, with two of the Mariners' three hits.

Mariners Vs. Angels Final Score: Seattle Drops Series With 5-3 Loss

The Seattle Mariners hosted the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night in the third game of a four-game series. The Mariners were hoping to salvage a split with wins on Saturday and Sunday and had to feel good about their chances with Felix Hernandez getting the start, but one disastrous inning led to a 5-3 Angels win.

The Angels got on the board first with an Albert Pujols solo home run in the fourth inning, his seventh of the year and third in as many games. The Mariners managed to tie the game and take the lead in the fifth inning on RBI singles by Mike Carp and Dustin Ackley.

The sixth inning is where everything fell apart for Hernandez, however, as the Angels loaded the bases with no outs and Alberto Callaspo hit a one-out grand slam to put the Halos on top, 5-2. Justin Smoak would get the Mariners a step closer with a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth, but that would be as close as Seattle would get.

Hernandez struck out seven batters against just one walk in six innings of work, but allowed five runs on 10 hits.

The Mariners will attempt to avoid the sweep on Sunday.

Mariners Vs. Angels Final Score: Brandon League Implodes In 6-4 Seattle Loss

The Seattle Mariners led for eight innings of Friday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels, but the string of awful Brandon League outings continued and Seattle ended up taking a 6-4 loss.

Justin Smoak was the entirety of the Mariners offense in the early innings, it seemed. He drove in the first run on the game in the bottom of the first on an RBI groundout. He singled in the Mariners' second run in the bottom of the third.

In the fifth, Smoak added his third and fourth RBI of the game on a two-run shot to right field. Smoak's sixth home run of the year made it 4-0 M's.

The Angels cut that lead down to size in the top of the sixth, as Albert Pujols hit his sixth homer of the season to make it 4-3 Seattle.

The Mariners were able to hold the Angels there until the ninth inning. Brandon League came in for the save and gave up a leadoff single to Mark Trumbo and Peter Bourjos came in to pinch-run. League walked Alberto Callaspo to set up an Erick Aybar sacrifice bunt play. The bunt was not a good one, but League threw the ball wide of third base and into left field, which allowed the tying run to score. The Mariners then intentionally walked the bases loaded to set up the force out. Howie Kendrick knocked a single up the middle on the first pitch to drive in two runs for a 6-4 Angels lead.

The Mariners still have a chance to split the four-game series by winning the weekend games at Safeco Field.

Mariners Vs. Angels Final Score: Seattle Shut Out In Opener, 3-0

The Seattle Mariners welcomed the Los Angeles Anges to Safeco Field on Thursday night for the opener of a big four-game series. Unfortunately, the Angels made themselves right at home, with Los Angeles starter Dan Haren shutting down the Mariners in a 3-0 victory for the visiting team.

Things went south right away as Mike Trout singled to lead off the game. Albert Pujols hit a home run with one out to make the score 2-0 Angels. The home run was the fifth of the year for Pujols.

The Angels tacked on an insurance run in the top of the sixth, when Kendrys Morales hit an RBI single that plated Pujols.

The Mariners struck out a whopping 14 times and didn't walk once against Haren, who picked up the win on a complete game shutout with ease.

Jason Vargas turned in a quality start for the Mariners once again in a losing effort, giving up three runs on seven hits and no walks in seven innings of work.
