Recap: Seattle vs. LA Angels

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Mark Trumbo's two-run, go-ahead single in the eighth inning sent the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim over the Seattle Mariners, 5-2, in the middle test of a three-game series.

Howie Kendrick added an RBI double and Albert Pujols drove in a run for the Angels, who have won the first two in the set and eight of their last 10 overall.

Ervin Santana (8-11) worked seven innings for the win, scattering four hits and a pair of runs while striking out five.

Trayvon Robinson homered and Franklin Gutierrez knocked in the other run for the Mariners, losers in three of their last four.

Felix Hernandez (13-6) was tagged in defeat for nine hits and five runs -- four earned -- over 7 1/3 frames.

Hernandez entered the eighth with a 2-1 lead, but allowed a leadoff single to Mike Trout and another hit to Torii Hunter which put runners on the corners. Pujols reached when M's third baseman Kyle Seager booted his grounder, allowing Trout to score the tying run. Two batters later, Trumbo's base hit plated two more and the King's outing was over.

"He senses [his] importance to our club," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Trumbo. "There's no doubt that putting him in RBI situations, the way he can drive the ball, he's going to have an opportunity to be one of our difference makers on the offensive side and hopefully that hit will [be] a sign of better things to come for Mark."

"It wasn't quite the same as we've seen," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said of Hernandez. "They made him work a little bit and he didn't quite have the same command but he was still really good and had good stuff. Even that eighth inning, he was ahead of both those guys they just weren't hit right at people and it just kind of rolled from there."

Stephen Pryor's wild pitch allowed pinch-runner Vernon Wells to reach second, and he scored when Kendrick doubled to the gap in left center for a 5-2 game.

Kevin Jepsen turned in a scoreless eighth, then Ernesto Frieri retired the side in order in the ninth to earn his 17th save.

The Angels jumped on top in the first inning, as Hunter singled with one out and scored when Pujols followed with a double.

Seattle moved ahead in the third. Robinson reached the seats in right center with one down, then, after Dustin Ackley walked with two down, Gutierrez doubled him in.

Johnson headlines FCS players of the week

In 2013, the Montana State Bobcats made a bit of an offensive switch, going from a pass-heavy system to a more run- integrated style of play. The reason wasn't because the team was unstable at quarterback, but rather due to the fact the Bobcats were loaded at the running back position.
