The Seattle Mariners can move a step closer to locking down a Wild Card berth with a win over the Los Angeles Angels.
The season for the Seattle Mariners is quickly coming down to what happens over the next week with a stong performance probably being enough to secure a Wild Card. The Mariners strong finish will have to wait another day to begin after a 5-0 loss to the Angels Wednesday. James Paxton gave up three runs in six frames to take the loss with Danny Farquhar allowing two more without recording an out. That was game over with the offense held to a mere hit with Justin Smoak logging a single. Felix Hernandez will be on the bump facing the Los Angeles Angels looking to get his team closer to the postseason. Hernandez is 14-5 on the season with a 2.14 ERA over 31 outings.

The Los Angeles Angels are in a position to rest up for the postseason or make a run at a 100 win season. It looked like they chose the latter following another winning night with a five run 7th breaking a scoreless contest in the win over visiting Seattle. CJ Wilson tossed his best game of the season with a one hit shutout through seven innings to pick up the victory. Los Angeles posted six hits with CJ Cron swinging the big bat with a three run jack that ended this from a competitive standpoint. Jered Weaver is scheduled to take the ball against the Seattle Mariners who he has opposed three times. In this stretch Weaver has allowed eight runs on 19 hits covering 18.1 innings of work.
The Angels are postseason bound yet aren't letting up as we saw Wednesday. I'm simply going with the under with neither hurler giving up many runs in this match up...
