Mariners defeat Angels, 6-4
Seattle 6, Angels 4
AT THE PLATE: After hitting two doubles and a single in five at-bats, scoring twice and driving in a run in the first two games, Albert Pujols took the day off Wednesday. So did the rest of the Angels’ offense until the late innings. Peter Bourjos tripled and scored the Angels’ first run in the seventh, and 20-year-old infield prospect Taylor Lindsey hit a two-run triple in the ninth.
ON THE MOUND: Jered Weaver retired the side in order in the first and gave up three singles in the second before getting Luis Rodriguez to fly to center with the bases loaded to end the inning. Closer Jordan Walden followed Weaver and threw a scoreless third inning, giving up an infield single, striking out one and throwing several good changeups.
EXTRA BASES: Veteran outfielder Bobby Abreu, in his first start of the spring, walked and struck out in two plate appearances. … Top outfield prospect Mike Trout has been slowed by a flu bug that has been going through the team, and is not expected to play in a game until next week.
UP NEXT: Right-hander Dan Haren faces the Cleveland Indians and right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez at noon PST Thursday at Goodyear Ballpark.
ON THE AIR: TV: none. Radio: 830.
