The Angels take the lead in the 6th when Langston walks Boone, Schofield, and Pettis and that ends Langston is done for the day. Carew hits a SACFLY to right and Boone scores and it is 5-4 Angels.
Donnie Moore comes in and tries to save the game but the Mariners have other plans. Bradley is on when Schofield can't handle the sharp grounder, Davis walks and Thomas walks to load the bases. Cowens hits a 2-out single to score Bradley and Davis and the Mariners get the win.
