The Los Angeles Angels experienced an unceremonious ending to a disappointing season as they fell to the Seattle Mariners, 12-0, on Wednesday at Safeco Field.
It didn't take long for the Mariners to open up the scoring, as they put up two runs in the bottom of the first behind a Kyle Seager double and a subsequent fielder's choice that scored him. But it was in the bottom of the seventh that the Mariners broke the game open. Casper Wells homered to left to cap a six-run inning and put the game away for good.
Despite the lopsided loss, rookie center fielder Mike Trout was one of the lone bright spots for the Angels, going 2-for-3 with a double. First baseman Kendrys Morales was also 2-for-3 with a double as he and Trout accounted for over half the team's seven hits.
Wells went 2-for-3 with 5 RBI and a walk, and added two runs scored.
Halos ace Jered Weaver pitched just one inning and did not return to the contest after giving up two earned runs, walking two and striking out one. He finishes the season with a 20-5 record and will be in consideration for the American League Cy Young award. According to beat writer Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times via Twitter, Weaver left the game citing general fatigue.
Seattle starter Blake Beavan pitched eight innings, gave up seven hits, and no runs. He finished the season 11-11.
