Mariners' lefty James Paxton leaves game with injury

James Paxton has a 2.70 ERA and has established himself a dark horse for the Cy Young

The Angels (59-58) moved into a tie with Seattle (59-58) in the American League West Division, each trailing Houston by 13 games.

The Mariners are now tied for the second American League wild card playoff spot with the Tampa Bay Rays. They finally have an offense to rely on, led by sluggers Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz, bolstered by the speed of young players like Ben Gamel and Guillermo Heredia, and propped up with some veteran presences like Kyle Seager, Danny Valencia, Jarrod Dyson, and new acquisition Yonder Alonso.

The M's went quietly in the bottom of the inning against Yusmeiro Petit, who earned his second save of the season.

That spoiled an outstanding start by the Mariners' Erasmo Ramirez, who allowed an unearned run and three hits in six innings.

Reliever Casey Lawrence allowed two runs in the seventh inning, and Tony Zych allowed three more in the eighth inning. He walked one and struck out one. He fielded the ball and scooped it to Ramirez running to cover first. The 27-year-old lost to Kansas City in his last outing, when he gave up five runs and eight hits - three homers - in five frames.

James Paxton went on the 10-day disabled list Friday for the second time this season. A day later, Trout walked with one out, taking a close 3-2 pitch from James Pazos (3-4). To make room on the roster for Bailey, OF Cesar Puello was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake.

But, with former OSU pitcher Andrew Moore for Seattle, the Angels scored four times in the seventh inning - on Albert Pujols' two-run single, CJ Cron's RBI single and Andrelton Simmons' RBI double. He was 1-3 with a 5.65 ERA in six starts with the Mariners before being sent back down to AAA-Tacoma earlier this summer.
