Mariners Outlast Angels in 11, Live to Fight One More Day
SEATTLE (AP) -- The Seattle Mariners stayed in the AL playoff race Saturday night when Austin Jackson hustled to barely beat a double-play relay in the 11th inning for a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels.
The Mariners sent the chase down to the final day, moving within one game of Oakland for the second AL wild-card spot. The A's lost 5-4 at Texas.
Seattle ace Felix Hernandez will start against the AL West champion Angels on Sunday, the last scheduled day of the regular season.
