That might be as close as the Mariners get in this 1-0 game as they loaded the bases with two out off Dan Haren in the seventh, only to see Brendan Ryan hit a comebacker to the mound that ended the threat.
Haren gave up singles to Mike Carp and Kyle Seager in the inning, then had Alberto Callaspo commit a fielding error on a grounder to load the bags up.


8:37 p.m.: The good news is, Felix Hernandez is pitching a gem as we head on to the seventh inning. Hernandez has allowed just a run on three hits and is starting to ramp up on his strikeouts as the game heads to the latter stages.
The bad news? His team has just one hit off Dan Haren through six innings.
Angels lead 1-0.
8:14 p.m.: The pitching tonight takes a decisive step upwards, with Felix Hernandez taking on Dan Haren. Ichiro will serve as the DH tonight, meaning Casper Wells gets another start in right field.
Four innings are done here and the mound duel has lived up to expectations, with the Angels leading the M’s 1-0.
Mike Trout singled in the third inning, was bunted to second, then scored on a Howie kendrick single to left. Kyle Seager hit a one-out double in the second inning, but Haren retired the side with no further trouble.
