RHP Felix Hernandez (6-5, 5.70) vs. LHP David Price (7-4, 4.00)
In case you missed it:
- The Mariners missed scoring opportunities, they made defensive miscues, Marco Gonzales was subpar. But it didn’t matter: Mitch Haniger homered — again — to walk off the Angels.
- Haniger’s game-winning homer was 17th of the series between the teams, a Safeco Field record for a three-game series, according to MLB. Per STATS, it was the first three-game series ever to feature four players hitting 3-plus dingers (4: Ryon Healy, Mike Trout; 3: Haniger, Nelson Cruz).
- Seattle completed a three-game sweep of Los Angeles, moving 7.5 games up on the Angels for a playoff spot and improved its hold on the AL West to a game over the Astros.
