Angels Vs. Mariners Final Score: Halos Drop Stunner Of A Series To Seattle With 4-1 Loss

The Los Angeles Angels were hoping to pick up a series win on Sunday against the Seattle Mariners at the Big A. Unbelievably, the Mariners were able to hand Jered Weaver just his second loss of the season as they defeated the Halos 4-1 in the rubber game.

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.

Weaver went seven innings, giving up three runs on four hits and three walks. With the loss, he falls to 15-2. Albert Pujols and Mike Trout both went hitless in the game.

Angels Vs. Mariners Final Score: Halos Drop Rough Game, 7-4

The Los Angeles Angels got some unexpected contributions from Vernon Wells on Saturday in the second game of a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners at the Big A. Unfortunately, Wells could only do so much in a 7-4 loss.

The Mariners jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the second inning with RBI singles from Trayvon Robinson and Dustin Ackley. John Jaso belted a solo homer in the third inning to make it 4-0 Seattle.

Seattle added another three runs in the fourth inning, on a Brendan Ryan sacrifice fly, an error by Albert Pujols and an RBI single from Jaso.

Wells, who was making a rare start in the wake of the exemplary play by Mark Trumbo and Mike Trout this season, finally got the Angels on the board in the fifth inning with an RBI single. He hit his seventh homer of the year in the eighth to cut the Seattle lead to 7-3.

Kendrys Morales managed to get the Angels another run closer in the ninth inning with his 15th home run of the year.

The Angels cannot afford to drop this series, especially with the Oakland Athletics winning their game on Saturday. The Halos will go for the series win on Sunday.

Angels Option David Carpenter To Triple A Salt Lake

Following their 6-5 win over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night in Anaheim, the Los Angeles Angels optioned relief pitcher David Carpenter to Triple A Salt Lake per Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com.

The Angels' bullpen has struggled mightily with a 6.41 ERA in 27 games since the All-Star break, including taking five losses in their recently completed 10-game road trip. Carpenter, 25, is 1-2 with a 4.76 ERA in 28 games this season, but he allowed six runs and seven hits in just 1 2/3 innings in his three August appearances.

The corresponding roster move will become official on Saturday, but LAAngelsInsider.com reported that right-hander Steven Geltz will be recalled from Triple A. Geltz put up a 3.76 ERA with 23 strikeouts and nine walks in 26 2/3 innings in Salt Lake, and earlier this season he had a 0.36 ERA with 37 strikeouts and six walks with Double A Arkansas before moving up one level.

Angels Vs. Mariners Final Score: Halos Manage Big 6-5 Win Against Felix Hernandez

The Los Angeles Angels managed to pick up a big win on Friday night against the Seattle Mariners. They were able to eliminate a 5-0 deficit and wind up with a 6-5 walk-off win against Felix Hernandez thanks to -- who else? -- Mike Trout.

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.

Trout was only 1-for-3 in the game but would up with a whopping five RBI. Without Trout, the Angels would have had no chance in this one.
