Mariners Drop Series Finale 3-1 to Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) _ Maicer Izturis hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the eighth inning, rewarding Jerome Williams for pitching eight innings of one-hit ball in the Los Angeles Angels' 3-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night.

Peter Bourjos added a run-scoring single in the eighth as Los Angeles trimmed the Texas Rangers' AL West lead to 2½ games with adramatic rally for its 10th win in 12 home games.

Williams (3-0) narrowly outdueled Seattle rookie left-hander Charlie Furbush (3-8), who held the Angels scoreless until the eighth.

Trayvon Robinson's sixth-inning leadoff homer was the Mariners' only hit off Williams, a journeyman right-hander who has made three strong starts for Los Angeles down the playoff stretch.
