ANAHEIM, Calif., June 20 (UPI) -- C.J. Wilson
allowed two hits over seven innings Wednesday and combined with two relievers to bring the Los Angeles Angels a 1-0 blanking of Seattle.
Joe Saunders went the distance for the Mariners, but his wild pitch in the sixth inning allowed Mike Trout to score the only run of the game.
Wilson (6-5) walked two and struck out three while throwing 113 pitches. He gave up an infield single to Kendrys Morales leading off the second and another leadoff single to Kyle Seager in the seventh.
Scott Downs worked a perfect eighth inning in relief of Wilson and Ernesto Frieri turned in a 1-2-3 ninth for his 16th save.
Saunders (5-7) surrendered six hits in what was his second complete game of the season and the ninth of his nine-year career.
Trout led off the sixth with a double and took third when Albert Pujols lined out to right. With Mark Trumbo at the plate, Saunders uncorked the wild pitch that allowed Trout to race home.
