Matt Milano Jersey

On a night when Albert Pujols moved up the career home run ladder Matt Milano Jersey , rookie teammate David Fletcher grabbed onto the bottom rung.

Pujols hit two home runs to tie Ken Griffey Jr. for sixth place with 630, and Fletcher connected for his first in the majors as the Los Angeles Angels romped to an 11-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday.

Pujols rarely talks about personal achievements. But matching Griffey, a former Mariners star, had him feeling an extra sense of pride.

”Griffey was everybody’s hero growing up and that’s how I look at it,” Pujols said. ”I know I am a right-handed hitter, but everybody wanted to have that sweet swing. For me, I got a chance to become pretty good friends with him. … It’s just really special to tie a legend and against a team that he came up with in the big leagues.”

Justin Upton also homered for the Angels, who took two of three in the series. Tyler Skaggs pitched six strong innings in his return from the disabled list.

Mariners starter James Paxton left in the first inning with lower back stiffness.

Pujols hit a two-run shot in the first and a solo drive in the sixth. He also had three hits to pass ex-Angel Rod Carew and move into a tie for 25th all-time with Rickey Henderson at 3,055.

It was the 50th multihomer game for Pujols, who has 16 home runs this season. He went back-to-back with Upton in the sixth.

Paxton (8-4) exited after Pujols connected for the first time. The left-hander gave up three runs and three hits in two-thirds of an inning Darrell Green Jersey , throwing just 17 pitches in his final start of the first half.

The injury is not believed to be serious, but the Mariners could put Paxton on the disabled list to add a player to the roster for this weekend’s interleague series at Colorado.

”Going out in the first inning, you can tell right from the get-go that he was not right,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. ”He wanted to give it a go and try to battle through it but you could see that it was not the typical James Paxton.”

Skaggs (7-5), who missed nine games with a hamstring strain, gave up one run on five hits with five strikeouts and a walk. The left-hander has allowed one earned or less in six consecutive outings, the longest such streak from an Angels starter since George Brunet in 1968.

”This is the best I have ever thrown the ball in my career so I’m going to take it one day at a time, one step at a time,” Skaggs said. ”I’m extremely proud of (the one-run streak). As a starting pitcher, that’s all you ask for.”

Fletcher hit the Angels’ third leadoff home run this season. Ian Kinsler had the other two.

”Fletch is doing a good job since we called him up and he has been a spark in our lineup Skai Moore Jersey ,” Pujols said. ”He has done a great job and has played an unbelievable third base. It’s really special for him to grow up in this area, go to school just down the street.”

Upton’s home run was his 18th and it gave Los Angeles an 8-1 lead in the sixth.

The Angels have won three of their past four series. The one they lost was last weekend in Seattle. The Angels had lost five of their last six against the Mariners before this series began.

NO AVERAGE JOE

Mike Trout scored three runs and stole a base, joining Hall of Famer Joe Morgan (1974) as the only players to compile 100 hits, 80 walks and 15 steals before the All-Star break.

It was not only Trout’s third three-run game of the season, his walk gave him a major league-leading 81 on the season. The previous Angels record in a first half was 62.

Trout’s 81 walks are the most before the All-Star break since Frank Thomas had 84 for the Chicago White Sox in 1994.

ROMINE PITCHES IN

Mariners infielder Andrew Romine entered as a pitcher in the eighth to face his former team and the right-hander retired Trout (fly ball) and Pujols (grounder) before giving up a two-run single to Kinsler, who had three hits.

It was Romine’s fifth appearance as a pitcher. He took the mound four times for the Detroit Tigers, including two scoreless appearances last season.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Mariners: LHP Marco Gonzales (bruised left calf) was getting treatment after he was hit by a comebacker Wednesday, and Servais said the 10-game winner will be pushed to the back half of the rotation after next week’s All-Star break. … RHP Felix Hernandez (lower back stiffness) will come off the disabled list next week and pitch at the front of the rotation when the second half of the season begins.

Angels: RHP Garrett Richards has elected Tommy John surgery over a conservative treatment option for his damaged ulnar collateral ligament and will miss the remainder of the season. … OF Chris Young (left hamstring strain) was given a platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection but has not started baseball activity after he was placed on the 10-day disabled list July 4.

UP NEXT

Mariners: RHP Christian Bergman, who threw seven scoreless innings May 16 in his only major league appearance this season, will be recalled Friday to start the series opener at Colorado.

Angels: One week after recording a career-best eight strikeouts against the Dodgers at home http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/paul-richardson-jersey , right-hander Felix Pena (1-0, 3.63 ERA) will get another crack at them Friday in Los Angeles.

The first women’s World Cup speed races in 2018 were doubtful on Friday as the snow on parts of the course was still too weak after heavy rain this week and mild temperatures.

The lower section of the Karnten-Franz Klammer course was not hard enough to stage the mandatory training for a downhill.

”It’s a difficult situation right now with the way the snow is and how they prepared the course,” Lindsey Vonn told The Associated Press. ”I am not sure if we are going to be able to get a race off, but they are definitely trying as hard as they can.”

The American standout added ”the top is good but the bottom is not safe to race.”

Organizers swapped the program for this weekend by pushing back the downhill to Sunday and rescheduling a super-G for Saturday.

The first downhill training on Thursday was cancelled and a race can be staged only after competitors have at least one training run on the entire course.

Only a shortened run of less than 40 seconds was held on Friday on the upper hill, which included the steep Klammer Stich with a 73-percent grade. Training on the rest of the course was planned for Saturday after the super-G.

”Of course we all want to race but the conditions have to be good,” Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein said. ”I hope there will be a clear decision tomorrow morning, not postponing and waiting.”

As the skiers’ representatives this weekend, Vonn and Weirather will be talking to the race jury on Saturday when decisions are made.

”We have a strong voice,” said Vonn, adding the races should not be staged at all costs with the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang only a month away.

The last time Bad Kleinkirchheim hosted the World Cup Dick Butkus Jersey , in 2015, both races were cancelled because of heavy winds.

Austria’s Christina Ager posted the fastest time in the short training session, followed by Sofia Goggia of Italy and Weirather.

Vonn, who failed to reach a podium in five previous races here, was 22nd.

American teammate Mikaela Shiffrin, who leads the season’s downhill standings after two events, is sitting out this weekend’s races to rest.
