Paxton was optimistic it was a minor injury, but an MRI on Friday morning confirmed a stint on the disabled list and another blow for the Mariners' postseason chances.

Albers had the 3rd best ERA (2.61) in the International League where he was pitching for the Braves AAA affiliate.

The Los Angeles Angels are creeping up in the American League wild-card race and aim to post their fourth consecutive victory when they visit the Seattle Mariners on Friday.

The Mariners are now tied for the second American League wild card playoff spot with the Tampa Bay Rays. Servais wanted to use Nick Vincent only in a save situation.

"Coming into the ballgame, we knew that Andrew Moore was going to pitch in this game". With Ricky Nolasco set to face Marco Gonzales in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 8.5 runs.

Will the Angels and Mariners slug tonight in Seattle when the AL West rivals meet at 10:10PM ET? "Hopefully, we'd have the lead, and we did have the lead". Pujols singled and Cron hit a bouncer that shortstop Jean Segura booted, allowing the run to score.

"To here that it was a strain and it was going to be a few weeks was frustrating", Paxton said. They are one of six teams within three games of the Twins. Tony Zych was down tonight. The last thing I want to think is how much I'm struggling and not doing my job.

The Angels, who won Thursday thanks to Trout's three-run ninth-inning double, had rallied to tie 5-5 after the Mariners had led 5-1.

"There will be a lot of decisions made that you may scratch your head at", Servais said, "but there is a plan behind it. We just didn't get the last out there in the seventh inning". "It just got away from us".

Nelson Cruz had a big night once again. He advanced to third on a fly to center by beating Mike Trout's throw, which allowed him to score on Jarrod Dyson's two-out single.

James Paxton came out of Thursday's loss to the Angels with a strained left pectoral muscle. We make the pitchers earn their outs. The game is never really over for us.
