ANAHEIM, Calif. Jamaal Williams Packers Jersey . - The Seattle Mariners are still going with a bullpen-by-committee and it worked out perfectly Tuesday night — except for one minor flaw that Kendrys Morales overcame with a clutch hit against his former team. Morales hit an RBI single in the 10th inning, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 3-2 victory against the Los Angeles Angels. It was only the third RBI for Morales in 30 at-bats against the Angels since he was traded to the Mariners in December for pitcher Jason Vargas. Charlie Furbush (1-3) faced only one batter to get the victory, striking out Josh Hamilton with runners at first and second to end the ninth. Rookie Yoervis Medina got three outs for his first major league save. Hamilton grounded into a double play his first three times up and struck out his next two at-bats. The 2010 AL MVP, who signed a five-year, $125 million contract in December, is batting .213 with 10 homers and 24 RBIs in 69 games. "Its hard for me to tell why hes struggling because Ive only faced him a handful of times," Furbush said. "He just working through whatever hes working through to try to get back to the big power numbers that hes had in the past." "I just try to do the things Ive got to do to make myself successful." Kyle Seager sparked the winning rally with a two-out double in the 10th against Garrett Richards (2-4). Morales, who struck out his previous three times up, then lined a 3-2 pitch off the glove of shortstop Erick Aybar to give Seattle the lead. Seattle grabbed a 2-0 lead on consecutive homers by Raul Ibanez and Justin Smoak in the second inning against Joe Blanton. But Mark Trumbo connected in the bottom half, and Albert Pujols tied it with a leadoff drive against Tom Wilhelmsen in the eighth. "There were a couple of guys in the bullpen we wanted to try and stay away from, and Tommy was the guy to go to right there," said manager Eric Wedge said, who got 16 saves from Wilhelmsen in 20 opportunities before removing him from that role. "It was a fresh inning, and we had to send him out there for the next inning, too. We were planning on saving Medina to close, so we couldnt go to him right there." Jeremy Bonderman pitched six innings of six-hit ball and Oliver Perez got three outs before Wilhelmsen yielded Pujols 12th homer on an 0-1 pitch. Until then, right-handed batters were only 5 for 48 against Wilhelmsen, who had not allowed a home run this season in 29 1-3 innings. The 30-year-old Bonderman, who missed the previous two seasons due to injuries and Tommy John surgery, is 1-0 with a sparkling 0.90 ERA over 20 innings covering his last three starts. The Mariners signed him to a minor league contract in January. "When you look at the physical shape hes in and how hard hes worked to come back, it was a good guy to give an opportunity to — and it was worth it," Wedge said. The Angels, who outscored Seattle 30-4 in the previous three meetings, got their first run when Trumbo drove Bondermans first pitch of the second into the rock pile in left-centre for his team-high 16th homer and first since June 1. It ended Bondermans streak of 14 consecutive scoreless innings, equaling his career best from 2007 with Detroit. Blanton gave up six hits in 6 2-3 innings and tied a career high with 11 strikeouts, following an eight-day stretch between starts to work with pitching coach Mike Butcher on his fastball command. Blanton, whose no-decision left him at 1-10, still shares the major league lead in losses with former Philadelphia Phillies teammate Cole Hamels. He has a 5.62 ERA in his first 14 starts with the Angels after signing a two-year, $15 million contract in December, and has surrendered giving seven home runs during his last four starts. "Throwing strikes is one thing, and commanding the zone is another," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Joe has the ability to throw strikes. Its just making that quality pitch in a good zone that has kind of waivered a little bit in his game, and thats when hes had trouble." Ibanez led off the second with his 14th homer. Smoak, who came off the disabled list Tuesday after missing 18 games because of an oblique strain on his right side, drove the next pitch to right field for his fourth of the season. "It was nice to come back and pop one on the first swing," Smoak said. "I figured hed try to get ahead. He left a fastball in the middle and I put a good swing on it." Smoaks drive landed in the first row above the 18-foot right field wall. Angels manager Mike Scioscia came out to suggest fan interference to the umpires, but the ruling was upheld after a video replay. NOTES: It was only the second time in 806 major league games that Hamilton grounded into more than one double play. He did it twice on June 18, 2010, with Texas at Boston. ... Ibanez has hit safely in his last 13 games at Angel Stadium — one off his career best streak at this ballpark. His first career homer off Blanton came in his 50th at-bat against him. ... The Angels have scored no more than three runs in any of Blantons last 10 starts while he was still in the game. ... The Angels have played in a major league-high 26 games that were decided by a one-run margin (10-16). ... The Mariners have hit 49 home runs on the road, compared to 29 at Safeco Field. ... Mariners reserve 1B Alex Liddi was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma to make room on the roster for Smoak. Jamaal Williams Jersey .

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Missed tackles with defenders little more than obstacles to bounce off on the way to more yards.A kicker missing both an extra point wide left and pushing an onside kick out of bounds.Lots and lots of penalty flags.Aaron Rodgers, the two-time NFL MVP, wasnt immune either, missing reads and overthrowing receivers with one pass going straight to a defender.The Green Bay Packers have lots of issues after a 47-25 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday put them below .500 for the first time this late in a season since 2013.Packers coach Mike McCarthy said they couldnt overcome falling behind 21-0 and by as much as 35-10 late in the first half before falling to 4-5.We understand how poorly we performed today, McCarthy said. As a team, were disappointed. We have higher standards than that. We have higher expectations of one another, so thats what well tap into and grab onto.That 25-point deficit was Green Bays largest in the first half of a game started by Rodgers. Now theyve lost three straight and four of their past five. The previous time the Packers were below .500 this late in a season at 5-6-1 in 2013, but finished 8-7-1 to win the NFC North in 2013.We just didnt execute as well as we wanted to on offense and obviously in the other two phases as well, Rodgers said.Minnesota lost again. Were a game back. Were kind of right where we were last week. Obviously, love to be standing here after a win, but right now weve got to work on ourselves and get this thing turned around.A franchise that has reached the postseason each of the past seven seasons has to fix some things first with two more games left on the Packers first three-game road trip since 2012.The Packers recovered Tennessees onside kick to open the game and had the ball at the Titans 49 in perfect position to score. They went three-and-out with Rodgers missing Randall Cobb on a short throw on third down.It took a little bbit to get going, Rodgers said. Josh Jones Packers Jersey. hen right guard T.J. Lang hurt an ankle on the first play of the second series and was replaced by Dan Barclay. By the end of the first quarter, the Packers had just 26 yards. Rodgers had completed only two passes.But the penalties already started piling up. The Packers finished with 12 for 107 yards.We had too much fight today, McCarthy said.The Packers added a touchdown to pull within 35-16 at halftime after they already had posted the largest deficit since trailing by 21 in the first half against the New York Giants in 2012.Rodgers threw for 371 yards and two touchdowns, and he also ran for another. Rodgers remains the only person to run for a TD this season for the Packers.McCarthy couldnt list all the injuries after the game, which grew when left tackle David Bakhtiari hurt a knee and was replaced by rookie Jason Spriggs in the fourth quarter. That forced lots of rotations as the Packers gave up five sacks.Its hard emotionally, center Corey Linsley said. Its difficult to right the ship anyway, but hard emotionally is what I am referring to. I think we have a level of trust in our locker room with a bunch of great guys that work hard. Im confident that we will get that back.The next stop on this road swing is a trip to Washington, and McCarthy said the Packers have been in tough spots before.Everything we want to accomplish big picture-wise is still in front of us, McCarthy said. But the reality is we need to get a little healthier and we have to prepare and play better and we have to win the next game.---Corrects to show Packers last below .500 this late in season in 2013, not 2008.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Teresa M.
