Angels 2, Mariners 1

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ervin Santana pitched into the ninth inning of his fourth straight outstanding start, and Mark Trumbo homered off Felix Hernandez to lift Los Angeles. Santana, who pitched a no-hitter two starts earlier, won his duel with Hernandez, the defending AL Cy Young Award winner whose 12 strikeouts were one shy of his career high. Santana lost his shutout bid on Mike Carp's one-out homer in the ninth, and manager Mike Scioscia pulled him two outs short of his third straight complete game. Santana is 5-0 in eight starts since June 21.
