The Mariners and Angels will meet once again in Southern California. This time, the Mariners could be the fly in the ointment.
The Los Angeles Angels are only 2.5 games away from a Wild Card spot, are coming off a dominating sweep and can smell blood in the water. The Seattle Mariners, meanwhile, have successfully taken a series from the Texas Rangers and are eager to continue raining on the parades of contenders for the remainder of the season. The M's will head to Angel Stadium for a three-game series beginning Tuesday and can potentially be a big fat spoiler for their division rivals.
