Angels 2 Mariners 7 (Game 085) Record (46-39)

Game Results: The Los Angeles Angels were the hottest team in baseball, until a thursday night in Seattle. The Angels were riding a five game-winning streak with the offense finally putting the pieces to the puzzle, but that offense would shutdown against the Mariners ace Felix Hernandez. The Angels would send one of their aces Garret Richards to the mound as he hoped to get his 10th win of the season. However it was a long night for Richards, as he would give up twelve hits and four earned runs. The Mariners were constantly hitting the ball against Richards, as he could not hit his pitches in the correct spots. Logan Morrison started the game off with a solo home-run in the first inning. From the start, Richards was thrown off his game, and the Mariners took complete control of the game.

For the Angels, their offense came to a hard stop, as they only gathered eight hits, and two earned-run. One of those runs’, came in the 8th Inning from the bat of Kole Calhoun. Watch below.

Another key factor why the Angels offense came to a stop, was due from one of the best pitchers in the MLB Today. Felix Hernandez went seven innings, with only allowing five hits, and more importantly zero earned runs. Hernandez once again shut out the Angels. It’s that dang King Felix fan group in the stands that always gets him going. Anyway the Mariners would continue to hit as they had their most hits in a ballgame this season. 19 Total Hits, Yes 19 Total Hits. Overall this was a bad game for the Angels. The Mariners would take the first game of this series by the score of 7-2.
