Bees delay Mariners' 3-2 win over Angels

Posted: Updated:

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Justin Smoak hit a tiebreaking two-run homer, Felix Hernandez had 10 strikeouts in a four-inning start, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 Sunday in a game delayed twice by bees.

 

Both teams retreated to their dugouts during a 23-minute delay in the third inning when a swarm of bees invaded the outfield at the Big A, hovering over right-center field near the wall. Bees briefly delayed the game again in the fourth inning before they dispersed.

 

C.J. Wilson (17-7) pitched eight-hit ball into the ninth inning but lost for the first time since July 5 against Boston, ending a streak that saw him go 9-0 over 13 starts. The left-hander struck out nine while reaching 200 innings for the fourth consecutive season.
