ANAHEIM, Calif., Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Kole Calhoun scored on a Chris Iannetta's single in the 11th inning Friday, allowing the Los Angeles Angels to claim a 3-2 win over the Seattle Mariners.

Calhoun singled with one out in the 11th and was still on first after Seattle reliever Bobby LaFromboise got the second out. Iannetta worked the count to 2-2 before hitting a drive off the wall in left-center.

Calhoun, off with the hit, scored all the way from first to end the game.

LaFromboise (0-1) allowed just those two hits in 1 1/3 innings of relief but took the loss. It was his first major-league decision.

The Angels' Cory Rasmus (1-1) struck out the first two batters he faced and got the third on a grounder in the top of the 11th for his first major-league win.

The rest of the game's scoring came in the seventh inning. The Mariners broke the 0-0 tie with a two-run single by Michael Saunders only to have the Angels counter with a two-out base hit by Andrew Romine that drove in Mark Trumbo and Calhoun.
