Game thread: Angels 1, Mariners 0, top 8th

The Mariners can guarantee themselves at least a 4-3 record on this road trip against AL West rivals if they win tonight. They are 3-2 so far and will have Felix Hernandez pitching the finale tomorrow.

The Mariners can guarantee themselves at least a 4-3 record on this road trip against AL West rivals if they win tonight. They are 3-2 so far and will have Felix Hernandez pitching the finale tomorrow.

Somebody finally scored here as Mike Trout led the sixth inning off with a double, took third on a flyout to right field and then scored on a Joe Saunders wild pitch that bounced through the legs of catcher Mike Zunino. Saunders then had the glove ripped out of his had when he tried to snare a Howie Kendrick liner. The training staff came out, but Saunders shook it off and finished the inning.

The Mariners have just one hit. That won’t get it done.

7:08 p.m.: Despite their offensive struggles on this trip, the Mariners can secure a winning mark if they take down C.J. Wilson and the Angels tonight. The Mariners are 3-2 with just two games remaining to go.

They start tonight eight games under .500, so you’d think they would like to make some headway.

Joe Saunders looked good in Oakland his last time out and if the M’s can steal one here, they have Felix Hernandez going in tomorrow’s finale.
