Mariners' Leake loses ideal game in 9th vs Angels

Mariners' Leake loses ideal game in 9th vs Angels

Leake needed just 98 pitches to blank the Halos in his second complete game and first shutout of the season, meaning he fashioned a "Maddux" (as in Greg Maddux), a shutout in fewer than 100 pitches.

Ronald Acuna Jr enjoyed a three-hit night as the Atlanta Braves snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-3 win over the Washington Nationals, while Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu got the better of rookie Zac Gallen as his side edged past the Florida Marlins 2-1.

The Angels hadn't come close to a hit and Leake hadn't gone to a three-ball count before Rengifo grounded a clean hit to right field on Leake's 79th pitch.

The 31-year-old right-hander was tagged by the Angels in his last start, exactly a week ago when he gave up seven runs while getting just two outs.

There have been 23 flawless games in major league history, the last by Felix Hernandez of the Mariners in 2012.

Leake kept the Angels off the bases with a fastball that was right around 88 miles per hour, along with a cutter, changeup and curve. He's got the big curveball. He did an excellent job, threw strikes.

The Mariners hadn't won since before the All-Star break, a stretch that included their no-hitter loss in LA, and had lost 13 of their last 15.

Barria walked J.P. Crawford and Domingo Santana to begin the fourth before Vogelbach hit a 1-2 pitch over the wall in center field. "I was throwing it on the plate and letting them hit it to one of our fielders or late in the count trying to put them away", he said.

The Angels are 1-4 in their last 5 road games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 43-20 in their last 63 vs. a team with a losing record. The first baseman came out of Thursday night's game against the Astros with left hamstring tightness. Reliever Keynan Middleton's rehab assignment at Triple-A Salt Lake City has been shut down due to numbness and tingling in his pitching arm. Maeda is expected to return to the rotation, but he was used out of the bullpen this time after a 35-pitch, rain-shortened start Wednesday at Philadelphia. Not only was Leake knocked out of that start in the first, but the Mariners were no-hit.
