Mike Trout: Angels outfielder Makes Possibly The Catch Of His Career “Watch”

“Freese is a good hitter, and he got to it”. Cano hit into a double play, second baseman Giavotella to shortstop Aybar to first baseman Cron, N.Cruz out. Trout’s catch stunned everyone; the runners didn’t even advance.


As a manager, the 2014 Mariners are the only team that has had a winning record under McClendon.

Angels: After the game, Street said the results of his MRI exam were “very positive”, although he is unlikely to pitch again in the regular season. He’s brought the power, but he was well above his established norms in average and on-base percentage, too, hitting.306/.376/.575 with 43 homers through Sunday.

The Mariners answered in the second inning after Franklin Gutierrez drew a leadoff walk.

From the ninth spot in the lineup, Giavotella singled in a Shane Victorino with a ground ball up the middle in the fourth inning.

“Yeah, I mean, that all started with Gio getting on base and getting to second”, Calhoun said.

There was no renewal of the Weaver/Kyle Seager spat that flared 11 days earlier at Safeco Field, when angry words came from both before and after Weaver hit Seager with a pitch (and was ejected from the game). Kole Calhoun lined a single into center before Trout hit a tough (but playable) grounder to third that Kyle Seager boxed. Seattle returns home to host the Astros on Monday, and Orange County will be rooting for the Mariners.

David Freese led off the bottom of the inning with a homer to right.

Miller then bunted up the third-base line for a single that scored Trumbo. Los Angeles reloaded the bases when Cron reached on catcher’s interference, but Hernandez defused the threat by striking out Freese.Seattle tied the score in the top of the second. “We battled and had him in trouble all night, but we couldn’t get the big hit to put us over the hump”. “When he hit it, I thought it was going to be way gone”. Until they hire one, there’s no real sense of the direction the franchise will take.

Giavotella drove in runs in the fourth and sixth innings, punctuating his sixth-inning triple with a belly-flop slide into third.

Iwakuma (9-5) probably deserved better after limiting the Angels to three runs and eight hits in 7 1/3 innings.

“You never know where Johnny’s going to end up”, he said, drawing laughter from reporters.

Like last season, the Mariners’ fate had been reduced to relying on another team’s success. RHP Zip Zabel pitched for the Chicago Cubs from 1913-15…. Giavotella had been sidelined for five weeks because of a temporary nerve disorder that causes double vision….

Instead, the Mariners will be watching the playoffs from home, just as they have every season since 2001.


Hernandez needed victories in his final two starts to win 20 games for the first time in his career, admittedly a consolation prize in another disappointing season.
