Angels Vs. Mariners Final Score: Halos Stage 9th-Inning Comeback For 6-4 Win

The Los Angeles Angels took advantage of a closer implosion on Friday night after trailing for eight innings against the hometown Seattle Mariners. Los Angeles ended up winning the second game of this four-game series by a final score of 6-4.

The Mariners struck first, with Justin Smoak driving in a run on a groundout in the bottom of the first inning. In the bottom of the third, Smoak hit an RBI single to drive in Ichiro Suzuki.

Smoak struck once again in the bottom of the fifth, hitting a two-run home run to right field to put the Mariners on top, 4-0. The Angels cut that lead down right away in the top of the sixth, as Albert Pujols hit his sixth home run of the year to make it 4-3.

In the top of the ninth, Mark Trumbo hit a leadoff single off of closer Brandon League and was replaced by pinch-runner Peter Bourjos. League walked Alberto Callaspo and made a throwing error on an Erick Aybar bunt that allowed the tying run to score. Howie Kendrick then drove in two more runs on a first-pitch single up the middle to give the Angels their first lead of the game, 6-4.
