Angels Doubled Doubles Help Weaver to Win

CRON - Otto Greule Jr

Weaver wavers but the bats bash back.

Final Score in Seattle: Angels 6 Mariners 3

The Angels hit four doubles in the top of the second inning to plate three runs and tacked on three more to win in Washington state. C.J. Cron hit his third home run of the season to tack on insurance late as the offense showed up in front of a fatigued Jered Weaver who couldn't seem to get out of an inning without a walk and a base hit and deep counts.

The doublers were David Freese, Cron, Erick Aybar and Chris Iannetta respectively.

Sean Burnett got one batter out in the bottom of the seventh inning before motioning to the dugout that he did not feel right. Fernando Salas finished the seventh and Joe Smith got three outs in the eighth after almost being decapitated catching a comebacker to the head.

Ernesto Frieri retired two batters in the ninth inning before walking one to bring up Robinson Cano. Cano drove in the two-out walk and Justin Smoak, who had homered off of Weaver earlier in the game, came up to the plate representing the tying run. Frieri walked him and Cano had already ran to defensive indifference to 3B. So Kyle Seager came up representing the winning run. Mike Butcher spoke to Frieri but there was no action in the Halo pen. Fly out to Mike Trout, deep, but done. Game Over, Light up your Halo.

Raul Ibañez pinch-hit for 3B Freese with a three run lead in the top of the ninth so look for reports as to whether he was physically fit or not. No word on Burnett yet, but if he is injured it would facilitate the return of Matt Shoemaker from AAA ahead of the mandatory 10-day stay. Shoemaker was sent down after Saturday's extra inning game despite pitching peachy for a fifth starter.
