Mariners feeling even more pain after coughing up lead against Angels

Mariners feeling even more pain after coughing up lead against Angels

What happened: Jean Segura couldn't come up with a chopper in the ninth inning, Mike Trout raced around from second to score, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Seattle Mariners 6-5 at Safeco Field on Friday. The Mariners have yet to confirm the trade. No doubt. It's been a insane season.

First, the quick hook with Gonzales: "Where we're at pitching-wise right now, you're trying to put a plan together every night going into it". There's no doubt. He's been really, really good. He matched his career high with his 20th start Thursday and is nearing his career high of 121 innings, now standing at 119.2 innings.

Paxton was working his way into the conversation for Cy Young Award consideration. He wound up with a no-decision. The 31-year-old Albers has limited major league experience, but has a 12-3 record and 2.61 ERA record this season at AAA Gwinnett.

Paxton said he woke up feeling pretty good on Friday and was a bit surprised by the diagnosis.

Paxton said he was told a pectoral strain is an uncommon injury for pitchers, but that would only seem to add to his unique injury history. "But we're going to see how it responds here and just try to get back as soon as possible and try to stay positive and do everything I can to get back on the mound as soon as I can". Paxton has missed time in the past because of a lat strain, finger tendon issues, and ended up on the DL previous year after getting hit on the arm by a line drive. "I feel like I've had enough of those".

This was another winnable game that the Mariners just couldn't find a way to win.

The Mariners took the lead later in the inning on Mike Zunino's mammoth two-run homer and then turned to rookie right-hander Andrew Moore, recalled earlier in the day, to protect the lead.

Los Angeles Angels closing pitcher Yusmeiro Petit (36) and catcher Martin Maldonado share congratulations after the Angels defeated the Seattle Mariners 6-5 in a baseball game Friday, Aug. 11, 2017, in Seattle.

"We've been through it before".

"We have to take advantage of when Mike gets on", Scioscia said. "He said that's what we're dealing with, and we'll just have to treat it as we go and do the best we can with it". All we have to do is keep playing baseball.
