ANAHEIM (CBS/AP) — Jered Weaver struck out eight in nine innings in his first start since he was suspended for throwing at a batter, Vernon Wells singled home the winning run in the 10th and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Seattle Mariners 1-0 on Friday night.

 

Torii Hunter led off the 10th with a single against rookie Dan Cortes (0-2), advanced on a wild pitch and came home when Wells lined a 2-2 pitch to left-center.

The victory ended Seattle’s three-game winning streak and sent the Mariners to their 17th loss in their last 19 games at Angel Stadium.

 

Angels closer Jordan Walden (3-3) pitched a perfect inning for the win.

Former Dodger minor leaguer Trayvon Robinson made his major league debut, stealing a homer away from Hunter and collecting his first hit off Weaver.
