Final: Angels 7, Mariners 1

Top first: Aaron Harang gets the start for the Mariners. He’s 5-10 with a 5.49 ERA. He retired the Angels in order to start the game, including a nice running snow cone catch by Michael Morse in right field and a strikeout of Mike Trout. Mariners 0, Angels 0.

Bottom first: The Mariners go down in order against Jared Weaver (7-7, 3.62 ERA). Mariners 0, Angels 0.

Top second: Harang is rolling early. Strikes out the side, including Josh Hamilton and Mark Trumbo. He already has four strikeouts. Mariners 0, Angels 0.

Bottom second: Mariners go three up, three down (Morales, Ibanez, Smoak). Mariners 0, Angels 0.

Top third: Harang gets the Angels to go down in order for the second time. He’s given up only one hit so far. Mariners 0, Angels 0.

Bottom third: Dustin Ackley gets the Mariners’ first hit of the day by ripping a solo homer to right centerfield. It’s his second home run of the year and it came on a full count. Mariners 1, Angels 0.

Top fourth: Just like that Harang goes from cruising to down three runs. Harang gives up his first hit of the day — a double to Josh Hamilton — and then gave up another double to the next batter, Mark Trumbo, that tied the game at 1-1. Harang then intentionally walked Hang Conger after falling behind in the count, and Chris Nelson drove in two runs with a triple. Grant Green tacked on another run with an infield single to Brad Miller in the hole. Angels 4, Mariners 1.

Bottom fourth: Mariners really struggling at the plate this series. Get one hit in this inning from Morales but that’s it. Angels 4, Mariners 1.

Top fifth: Harang gives up a walk and a hit but limits the damage. He’s been good except for the four-run fourth with two outs. Angels 4, Mariners 1.

Bottom fifth: The Mariners go three up, three down and strike out twice. They’ve struck out six times already. Angels 4, Mariners 1.

Top sixth: Harang gives up an RBI triple to Peter Bourjos and a two-run homer to Hank Conger before exiting after 5 2/3. He might have been able to get out of the inning, but Raul Ibanez couldn’t track down a fly ball in left field. Angels 7, Mariners 1

Bottom sixth: Three up, three down for the Mariners. Angels 7, Mariners 1.

Top seventh: The Angels get a walk and a single, but that’s it. Angels 7, Mariners 1.

Bottom seventh: You guessed it: Three up, three down for the fifth time in this one. Angels 7, Mariners 1.

Top eighth: Carter Capps gave up two singles with one out, and then things turned weird. Josh Hamilton hit a sharp ground ball to Brad Miller, who knocked it down. He had a play a third where he easily could have thrown out the lead runner, but instead went to first, where Hamilton beat out the throw. It was scored a fielder’s choice, but it was a defensive lapse and loaded the bases. But Capps buckled down and got the final two outs of the inning. Angels 7, Mariners 1.

Bottom eighth: Dustin Ackley doubles — he has a home run and a double, the Mariners’ only extra-base hits — but Seattle gets nothing to show for it. Angels 7, Mariners 1.

Top ninth: The Angels go three up, three down for just the second time. Angels 7, Mariners 1.

Bottom ninth: The Mariners loaded the bases with two outs — the only time in the game they had more than one base runner in an inning — but Justin Smoak went down swinging to end the inning and the game. Angels 7, Mariners 1.
