Mariners stop the rot with wild 11-10 win over Angels

 

The Seattle Mariners (14-8) got back on the winning side of the track with a wild, wacky and downright gritty  11-10 win over the Los Angeles Angels (8-11).  The Mariners jumped out to a 4-0  lead in the top of the second on a Ryan Healey Home Run that scored  Daniel Vogelbach and Norma NarváezTim Beckhams single to right scored Mitch Haniger to give the visitors a comfortable lead in the top of the sixth when Healy recorded his second homer of the game and give the Mariners a 7-2 run after Narváez scored.

The comfortable lead turned to a cozy and comfortable in the seven when Narváez homered to right center scoring Edward  Encarnación scored and Vogelbach for a 10-2 Mariners lead.  That cozy feeling was erased in a dramatic seventh inning in which the Angels scored seven runs to pull within one run at 10-9. The Angels gave the Mariners the jitters in the next inning when  David Fetcher tied the game with a 403 foot home run. A  Jay Bruce single in the top of the ninth scored Haniger for the winning run as the Mariners snapped a  six-game losing streak in dramatic fashion.

“I give our offense a ton of credit,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said on the team’s website. “When you give up a lead like that, you lose a lot of momentum. Our guys found a way to get some guys on base, work the strike zone and get a big hit by Jay Bruce, and it was enough. “Not the way we typically drew that up when you’re leading 10-2, but give the Angels credit. They battled back. Fortunate for us, we were able to get it done at the end.”
