Mariners Vs. Angels Final Score: Seattle Wins Wild One 8-6 To Take Series

The Seattle Mariners closed out a three-game series against division rivals the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim on Wednesday night. In the end, the Mariners came from behind twice to capture the series with an 8-6 win.

The Mariners struck first, putting up a pair of runs in the top of the second inning on a Mike Carp double. The Angels scored two runs of their own in the bottom of the frame, on an RBI double by Erick Aybar and a sacrifice fly by Hank Conger.

The Halos took a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the third as Kendrys Morales hit his seventh home run of the year. The Mariners tied things up once again in the top of the fifth on a Kyle Seager two-run double, but Morales and Howie Kendrick both had RBI singles in the bottom half of the fifth to reclaim a 6-4 lead.

In the top of the sixth, Ichiro Suzuki hit a two-out RBI single and Seager hit a two-run, two-out single to push the Mariners back into the lead, 7-6. The Mariners tacked on another run in the top of the eighth with a Suzuki home run. The blast was the fourth of the year for Suzuki and gives the right fielder 99 home runs in his career.

Seattle starter Hector Noesi was again hit hard, giving up six runs in four innings of work. Brandon League, recently demoted from his closer role, pitched a scoreless, hitless eighth inning. Tom Wilhelmsen gave up a two-out double to Albert Pujols in the bottom of the ninth, but struck out Morales to end the game.

The Seattle Mariners attempted to pick up a quick series win on Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Angels. Instead, the Angels -- specifically Mark Trumbo -- romped in a 6-1 win to even the series.

The Angels went up 2-0 in the bottom of the second on back-to-back homers by Mark Trumbo and Torii Hunter. Michael Saunders led off the top of the third with a solo shot for Seattle's only run of the game.

The Angels added two more runs in the bottom of the third on RBI singles by Albert Pujols and Trumbo, then plated their final two in the bottom of the fifth on a two-run shot by Trumbo.

Saunders was 3-for-4 and accounted for three-fifths of the Seattle hits in the game.

Mariners Hold Off Late Charge to Beat Angels

With runners on second and third and one out in the eight, Mariners' reliever Tom Wilhelmsen faced long odds in protecting an 8-6 lead as Angels hitters Albert Pujols and Mark Trumbo came up to bat. Wilhelmsen, who replaced Shawn Kelley, calmly retired Pujols on a fielder's choice then struck out Trumbo to get out of the jam. He then returned in the ninth and recorded his first career save and helped the Mariners beat a streaking Angels team in LA.

Mariners' manager Eric Wedge was impressed. "When you're facing those two hitters in that situation, you can't ask for anything more. He did a great job of making them work and then he had to finish it off in the ninth. It was a great performance by Tom."

The game was started by Mariners' no. 2 pitcher Jason Vargas (7-4), who gave up four runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings while striking out eight, a season-best. Vargas picked up the win.

On the offensive side of the ball, Kyle Seager hit his 7th home run on the season, Munenori Kawasaki contributed a three-run double and John Jaso collected three hits. The Mariners improved to 25-32, pushing them, at least for a day, out of the AL West cellar.
