LAst Night's Action: Angels Rebound in Seattle
LA Angels defeat Seattle Mariners 8-0. Mariners’ All-Star shortstop Jack Wilson had problems in the field this week, so Don Wakamatsu decided to go with Josh Wilson at short. The Angels pounced on the Mariners in the first innings. With the bases loaded, Kendry Morales hit a bases-clearing double to left field and advanced to third on a throwing error by Josh Wilson. Oops. Morales came home on a Juan Rivera sacrifice fly to spot starter Jered Weaver four runs. Mariners’ starter Felix Hernandez wasn’t kingly getting knocked out of the fourth inning after giving up homers to Rivera, Howie Kendrick and catcher Ryan Budde to give the Angels the 8-0 lead. Weaver would pitch a no-hitter into the seventh inning when Ken Griffey, Jr. singled to right with two outs. Weaver would go 7 1/3 innings giving up two hits and three walks while striking out seven. Scot Shields pitched the remainder of the game yielding only a walk in the ninth inning.
