Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
The Mariners completed a sweep of the Angels after Sunday’s 4-3 Win.
Felix Hernandez had a three-run lead before he threw his first pitch, and Seattle’s ace was up 8-1 after three innings. King Felix and the Mariners still managed to lose to the Los Angeles Angels, and Seattle’s rocky season just might have reached a new low.
Mike Trout scored on Saunders’ first wild pitch of the season, leading the Angels to a 1-0 victory over the Mariners on Wednesday night.
Josh Hamilton has just about hit rock-bottom with the bat for the Los Angeles Angels. The 2010 AL MVP has been a huge disappointment since signing a five-year, $125 million contract in December after leaving Texas in free agency.
Albert Pujols had an RBI double among his four hits, Josh Hamilton hit a two-run homer, and Los Angeles pounded out a season-high 21 hits in an 11-3 victory Monday night.
Rookie Brandon Maurer lasted just three innings while making his first major league start near his hometown, and the Mariners fell 7-1 to the Los Angeles Angels for their season-worst sixth consecutive loss.
Mike Trout hit for the cycle and drove in five runs, Josh Hamilton celebrated his 32nd birthday with a homer and a triple his first two times up, and Howie Kendrick also went deep in the Los Angeles Angels’ 12-0 rout of the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.
Former Mariners starter Jason Vargas allowed just six hits and struck out seven over eight innings of work against his old team Sunday. But Jason Bay and Michael Morse each homered off Vargas late as the Mariners rallied to hand the Angels a 2-1 loss on Sunday.
Rookie Brandon Maurer quieted the veteran Angels lineup with a 6-0 victory Thursday night.
Simply put, Mike Trout was the best player in the game in 2012.
