Angels’ Six-Run Sixth Sinks Mariners — L.A.’s in First Place Going into All-Star Break
SEATTLE (AP) — Chris Iannetta hit a two-run home run and David Freese added a two-run double as part of a six-run sixth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels entered the All-Star break in first place in the American League West after a 10-3 win over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
The Angels won for the 11th time in 14 games and leaped past Houston into the AL West lead for the first time since April 17 after the Astros lost their sixth straight on Sunday. The Angels took advantage of three errors by Seattle and knocked around starter Taijuan Walker (7-7) for his worst outing in two months.
Freese just missed a homer, doubling off the top of the wall to end Walker's day in the sixth. Iannetta followed with his fifth homer of the season off reliever David Rollins to blow the game open.
