Recap: Seattle vs. LA Angels

Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Austin Jackson hustled down the first-base line and his final lunge toward the bag kept the Seattle Mariners in the AL wild-card chase heading into the final day of the season.

Brad Miller scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the 11th inning and the Mariners edged the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 2-1, in the middle test of a three-game set on Saturday night.

The Mariners, who were unable to take advantage of a bases-loaded, no-out situation in the ninth, struck in the 11th.

Miller lined a one-out double down the right-field line off Mike Morin (4-4) and Chris Taylor blooped a base hit into center to put runners on the corners.

Vinnie Pestano came on for Morin and Jackson bounced one to a drawn-in Grant Green at second. Green went to second for the force out, but Gordon Beckham's relay throw to first was a tad too late.

"He was indecisive," Halos manager Mike Scioscia said of Green. "His indecisiveness kept him at a distance from second."

Seattle is one game behind Oakland for the AL's final wild card spot. The A's lost to Texas earlier Saturday. If there is a tie for the second wild card, Seattle will host the playoff Monday at Safeco Field.

"We put ourselves in a really good position and we've got to hope that Oakland loses," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "We're playing a meaningful game in 162 and I think that speaks volumes of this club."

Dominic Leone (8-2) tossed a scoreless top of the 11th to notch the win.

Logan Morrison posted two hits and an RBI and starter James Paxton allowed a run on four hits and three walks over 5 2/3 innings for the Mariners, who have won three straight games on the heels of a five-game losing streak.

Angels starter C.J. Wilson surrendered a run on four hits and three walks over six-plus frames.

The Halos opened the scoring in the second. David Freese hit a one-out double and later scored on a C.J. Cron infield single. Kole Calhoun lined out with men on second and third to end the inning.

Seattle, which didn't put a runner into scoring position until the sixth, tied the game in the seventh. Kyle Seager worked a leadoff walk and scored on Morrison's double to center.

Game Notes

The Mariners moved to 11-7 against the Angels this season ... Seattle was 1- for-11 with runners in scoring position and left 12 men on base, while the Angels finished 1-for-8 with RISP.
