An­gels 3, Seat­tle 2 ( 10 in­nings)

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL - — Gary Klein

KEY MO­MENT: With the score tied, 2- 2, in the 10th in­ning, the An­gels’ Johnny Gi­avotella and Kole Cal­houn hit con­sec­u­tive sin­gles to put run­ners at first and third with no outs. The Mariners in­ten­tion­ally walked Mike Trout to load the bases for Al­bert Pu­jols, who hit into a dou­ble play. That brought rookie Kyle Ku­b­itza to the plate. Re­liever Tom Wil­helm­sen gave the An­gels the vic­tory with a wild pitch that al­lowed Cal­houn to score from third. “We’re go­ing to take it whether it’s a wild pitch or a walk- off hit,” Man­ager Mike Scios­cia said.

AT THE PLATE: Erick Ay­bar drove in a run with a sev­enth- in­ning pinch- hit sin­gle, Cal­houn put the An­gels ahead with a run- scor­ing sin­gle in the eighth and then sin­gled in the 10th. Efren Navarro had two hits, in­clud­ing the only one against Mariners starter Felix Her­nan­dez, who struck out eight in six shutout in­nings. Tay­lor Feather­ston had an eighth- in­ning sin­gle and scored a run.

ON THE MOUND: Hec­tor San­ti­ago gave up a run and three hits in seven in­nings be­fore giv­ing way to Joe Smith in the eighth. Hus­ton Street pitched the ninth, but lost a chance for his 22nd save of the sea­son and 297th of his ca­reer when he sur­ren­dered a two- out solo homer to Kyle Sea­ger. Trevor Gott pitched a score­less 10th in­ning for his first vic­tory.

EX­TRA BASES: Ku­b­itza was op­tioned to triple- A Salt Lake af­ter the game. ... The vic­tory marked the

An­gels’ sixth walk- off win of the sea­son. It was their first walk- off vic­tory on a wild pitch since Aug. 10, 2012; that win also came against the Mariners. ... The An­gels held a team meet­ing be­fore the game to dis­cuss scout­ing re­ports, Scios­cia said. Scios­cia did not meet with re­porters be­fore the game. ... A shirt­less fan ran onto the field dur­ing the top of the sixth in­ning and ran to­ward An­gels cen­ter fielder Trout. The man evaded about a half- dozen se­cu­rity per­son­nel as he made his way to the front of the mound, where he faked throw­ing a pitch. He was ap­pre­hended in foul ter­ri­tory near the Mariners’ first- base dugout.

IN­JURY RE­PORT: Ay­bar was not in the lineup for a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive game be­cause of a left ham­string strain. Scios­cia said he would prob­a­bly be in the lineup Mon­day. ... Sec­ond base­man Robin­son Cano was in the lineup for the Mariners. Cano suf­fered a con­tu­sion Satur­day af­ter he was hit in the head by a ball while sit­ting in the dugout be­fore the top of the sev­enth in­ning. He was struck by an er­rant throw by Feather­ston dur­ing in­field warmups. Cano grounded out, walked and struck out twice Sun­day.

UP NEXT: Left- han­der C. J. Wil­son ( 5- 6, 3.92 earned- run av­er­age) faces New York Yan­kees left- han­der CC Sa­bathia ( 3- 7, 5.65) on Mon­day at 7 p. m. at An­gel Sta­dium. TV: FS West; Ra­dio: 830, 1330.
