Lopez, Fister lead Mariners over Angels

SEATTLE, Washington (AP) - Jose Lopez's two-out double in the seventh inning made rookie Doug Fister a winner and sent the Seattle Mariners to yet another one-run victory, 2-1 over the first-place Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.

Fister (2-1), making his fifth major league start, held what was the highest-scoring team in the majors entering the game to just one run and five hits in 7 1-3 innings.

It was the 43rd time in 133 games the AL's lowest-scoring team managed two runs or fewer. Yet Seattle improved to 29-16 in one-run games, the most such decisions and wins in baseball.

Seattle's winning rally came with two outs in the seventh off Darren Oliver (4-1), with the help of iffy fielding from the usually dependable Angels.
