Recap: LA Angels vs. Seattle

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Torii Hunter's game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the streaking LA Angels of Anaheim to a 4-3 win over the Seattle Mariners in the middle installment of a three-game set.

Maicer Izturis, who hadn't tallied a hit in his last 20 pinch-hit at-bats, led off the frame with a single off Stephen Pryor (3-1) to right field. He scampered to second on a wild pitch and Peter Bourjous moved him to third with a sacrifice bunt. Following an intentional walk to Mike Trout, Iztruis scored when Hunter ripped a single to center field.

It was the seventh career walk-off hit for Hunter, who tied the game in the seventh when he flicked a two-out RBI single to right-center field.

"If anything was in the zone, I was going to hit it. It was a cutter, I'm very energetic right now, I want to win, I really want to get there (postseason) and everyone in here wants to get there too," Hunter said.

The Angels, who have won five straight and seven of their last nine, sit two games behind the Oakland Athletics for the second AL wild card spot.

Ernesto Frieri (4-2) tossed a scoreless ninth to pick up the win.

Justin Smoak smacked a solo homer for the Mariners, who have dropped three straight contests.

"Smoak swung the bat well all night. We hit the ball on the nose, but right at them," M's manager Eric Wedge said.

The Angels struck first with a two-run second, but the M's quickly got both runs back in the visitors third and tallied a run in the fourth to take the lead.

Kendrys Morales and Alberto Callaspo hit consecutive singles to begin the second before moving to second and third on Howie Kendrick's sacrifice bunt. Erick Aybar pushed both runners across when he sliced an opposite-field double down the left-field line.

In the third, Casper Wells and Chone Figgins worked back-to-back walks before Wells scored on Brendan Ryan's single to left field. Figgins came home two batters later when Franklin Gutierrez lifted a sacrifice fly to left field.

Smoak stroked a one-out solo shot over the wall in left field in the fourth for a 3-2 Seattle advantage.
