Mariners fall to Angels

HOUSTON TX- JULY 19 Seattle Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton delivers the pitch in the first inning of a MLB baseball game between the Houston Astros and the Seattle Mariners at Minute Maid Park Tuesday Juan DeLeon Icon Sportswire

Friday afternoon the club announced left-hander James Paxton has been placed on the 10-day DL with a strained pectoral. Mike Trout's three-run double in the top of the ninth inning propelled Los Angeles to a 6-3 win in the opener of the four-game set and moved it within one game of the second wild-card spot.

The M's went quietly in the bottom of the inning against Yusmeiro Petit, who earned his second save of the season.

The Seattle Mariners, who have been surging up the AL wild card standings the last few weeks, will be without their best starting pitcher for at least three weeks. And even though Felix Hernandez and David Phelps, two key components of the pitching staff, have somehow ended up on the disabled list again, the Mariners finally look like a team that knows how to win games.

The survey was conducted between August 1 and 6 and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points. And by almost 2-to-1, most say it's good that the Senate rejected the GOP repeal-and-replace bill last month.

"Obviously it's disheartening news, no doubt", Seattle manager Scott Servais said. No doubt. It's been a insane season with all the injuries. To put ourselves in the position we're in right now, a lot of it has had to do with James Paxton. "He had some really good games for us last time, and sometimes he struggled". Before Thursday's start, he had won seven in a row. Paxton is 12-3 with a 2.78 ERA in 20 starts. He had entered the American League Cy Young conversation.

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. "Yeah, just another rare injury that's pretty uncommon with pitchers, but that's what we're dealing with and we'll have to treat it as we go", Paxton said. Andrew Moore was called up from Triple-A to take Paxton's spot in the rotation.

For the second night in a row, the Los Angeles Angels dealt Seattle a very tough loss with a ninth-inning rally. "Eventually we're going to have to try to settle in and keep some things going here". On the other side, the over is 3-0-1 in Nolasco's last four starts overall, is 5-1 in the Angels' last six games versus a left-handed starter, and is 5-2 in their last seven road games.
