Mariners Come Back to Win; Beat Angels 2-1

SEATTLE (AP) _ Felix Hernandez pitched a five-hitter and Mike Carp hit a two-run double with two outs in the eighth inning to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 2-1 comeback victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.

The loss prevented the Angels from gaining ground on first-place Texas in the AL West. The Rangers, who earlier lost to Tampa Bay 5-1, maintain a 3½-game lead.

Hernandez (13-11), who dueled with Angels starter Dan Haren all night, gave up five hits, walked one and struck out nine in his fifth complete game of the season.

At one point, Haren (13-8) retired 15 batters in a row. After a one-out double to Kyle Seager, he didn't allow another baserunner until Franklin Gutierrez's one-out single in the seventh. Haren allowed two earned runs, walked one and struck out seven in 7 2-3 innings.
