The Angels were down 7-0 entering the bottom of the 3rd inning and facing Felix Hernandez. It was over. Done. Turn the page.

However, the club didn't give up, and chipped away at Seattle's lead until finally tying the game in the 6th. In one of the strangest plays you'll ever see, the Mariners put the go-ahead run on base by intentionally walking Mike Trout to face future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols. Pujols made them pay by tying the game at 8-8 with a base hit to right-center.

The Halos scored 5 run in the fifth to get to within one run of tying the game. Peter Bourjos homered to lead off the inning and the Angel batters followed with six consecutive hits, highlighted by a monster, 3-run blast off the bat of Mark Trumbo.

Each hitter, with the exception of Josh Hamilton, had at least one hit. Trout had his second 4-for-4 game of the season, while Bourjos had three hits and 3 runs scored.

Scott Downs got the win with 0.1 of inning pitched, and Ernesto Frieri recorded his 17th save of the season and second in two nights. The win move the Angels 9 games behind the division leading A's, and improved their record to 33-40.
