Mariners placed LHP James Paxton on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left pectoral muscle.

With seven weeks remaining in the regular season, a two-way tie for the second wild card and at least four more American League teams on the verge of playoff contention, this isn't the moment you want to see your rotation begin to weaken. Jean Segura went 3 for 5 while Yonder Alonso and Jarrod Dyson each put up a pair of base hits in the losing effort.

The Mariners went down quietly against Yusmeiro Petit in the bottom of the ninth inning. Moore was called up a day earlier, giving up four runs amd six hits in 1 2/3 innings of his first career relief appearance Friday night. Keynan Middleton got the win to improve to 4-0 this season, while Cam Bedrosian turned out the lights in the 9th for his 5th save of the year.

The M's, with a 59-57 overall record, will look to get back on track in game two of the four-game series.

After Blake Parker pitched a scoreless eighth, Cam Bedrosian did the same in the ninth for his fifth save of the season. With the score tied 3-3, the bases loaded and one out in the top of the ninth, Trout hit a three-run double. "There's no doubt. He's been really, really good".

Leicester City have had a busy transfer window so far, with Kelechi Iheanacho their biggest signing. The 35-year-old was the only United player to get into double figures in the league.

The Angels' Ben Revere and Mike Trout walked to open the eighth against Mariners reliever Tony Zych (5-3).

The Mariners have struck a deal with the Braves to acquire lefty Andrew Albers, per David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (via Twitter). The Mets received minor league pitcher Ryder Ryan in return, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post. He will report to Triple-A Tacoma. According to MLB.com's Greg Johns, Paxton grabbed at his upper left pectoral/shoulder area after a pitch in the seventh inning, which prompted the training staff to pay him a mound visit.

Angels: JC Ramirez (10-10) makes his 23rd start of the season. Erasmo Ramirez gave up just an unearned run on three hits over six innings of work, not factoring in the decision.

Bruce, 30, has had a productive year for the Mets, batting.258/.324/.524 with 29 home runs and 75 RBI in 445 plate appearances.
