Seattle spoils Kazmir's debut with 3-0 win over Angels

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE - Felix Hernandez pitched eight scoreless innings to spoil the Los Angeles debut of pitcher Scott Kazmir as the Seattle Mariners beat the Angels 3-0 last night.

Hernandez gave up four hits, walked three and struck out six to lower his ERA to 2.65 -- second best in the American League.

Kazmir was acquired on Aug. 28 by the Angels from Tampa Bay. He gave up one run and three hits in 6-and-a-third innings, walking one and striking out eight. After a shaky start to the first inning, Kazmir retired 18 straight before Mike Sweeney opened the seventh with a walk.

Bill Hall followed with a double to make it 1-0. Hall would later steal third and came home when catcher Mike Napoli's throw bounced past Chone Figgins.

The Mariners will open a four-game series tonight in Oakland.
