Mariners Lose Series Finale to Angels 4-3

SEATTLE (AP) _ Torii Hunter and Howie Kendrick homered for the Los Angeles Angels to help a wild Ervin Santana overcome seven walks Thursday night in a 4-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners.

The Angels remained 3½ games behind AL West leader Texas. The Rangers beat Tampa Bay 7-2.

Santana (10-9), given a three-run lead in the first inning, was not nearly as sharp he had been lately. He entered 6-1 with a 2.06 ERA and three complete games in his previous nine starts, and 4-0 with a 1.68 ERA in his last four road starts.

Yet he walked a season-high seven batters against Seattle, with two scoring. Santana went 6 2-3 innings, his shortest outing since lasting 6 1-3 innings July 16, while allowing four hits and three runs. He struck out five.
