ANAHEIM, Calif. - 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.

CHICAGO -- You might need a separate roster to keep track of all the rookies playing for the Chicago White Sox. There are 10 of them right now, nearly half of the clubhouse, and their contributions have been pivotal. Without first-year standouts such as Jose Quintana and Addison Reed, the White Sox might not be on top in the AL Central. Quintana pitched brilliantly for eight innings in searing heat and the White Sox beat the Texas Rangers 2-1 to complete a three-game sweep Thursday in the meeting of division leaders. Reed got the final three outs for his 12th save in 13 chances just as a thunderstorm was hitting U.S. Cellular Field. Veteran Kevin Youkilis, meanwhile, continued his tear with a go-ahead homer off All-Star Matt Harrison and played a key role in the entire series. "I just drank a lot of water for sure and tried to stay hydrated," said Quintana, who allowed only two hits in a game that started at 99 degrees and elevated to 102 by the fourth inning. "And the other thing was not trying to rush the game. I wanted to make sure I had quality pitches I was throwing." Bouncing back from a rough outing against the New York Yankees, Quintana (4-1) walked one and struck out a career-high eight. He gave up a leadoff single to Ian Kinsler in the first and an RBI single to Adrian Beltre in the fourth on a line drive that hit the left-hander on the left thigh and bounded past first. He wasnt hurt and didnt give up another hit. Quintana and Harrison worked quickly despite the sweltering conditions. The game was played in only two hours, nine minutes. With four pitchers on the DL, including starters John Danks and Phil Humber, the 23-year-old Quintanas performance has been crucial, especially after he pitched most of the first two months in Double-A. He is now 3-0 over his last five starts. "He has a great feel on the mound, great stuff. Hes more mature than you would think," Chicago manager Robin Ventura said. "Were lucky in the situation were in with Johnny going down; he was there to pick it up and pitch the way he has." The loss was the fourth straight for the two-time AL champion Rangers, matching their longest skid of the season. Texas came into the series with the best record in the majors. "Were in first place in the West. Thats where we are," Rangers manager Ron Washinngton said.dddddddddddd"Thats what this series told us. We lost three ballgames, but were in first place in the West." Youkilis took Harrison deep in the sixth to break a 1-all tie, his sixth homer of the season and second since joining the White Sox in a trade from Boston last month. Hes had quite a first homestand with his new team. He homered and had four RBIs in Tuesday nights opener and delivered a winning single and two stellar defensive plays at third on Wednesday. "I havent gotten too good of a feel for it yet," Youkilis said of U.S. Cellular, his new home park. "Hopefully the ball keeps jumping. We got guys with a lot of power, so hopefully it plays into that." It was the first homer Harrison had allowed since June 3 and Thursday was his sixth start since that outing against the Angels. Harrison (11-4) gave up eight hits and two runs with two walks and five strikeouts in eight innings, getting the complete game. He had won his previous seven decisions. "More humidity here, so it was pretty miserable out there. Trying to have as quick of innings as possible, except for the one," Harrison said. "I was able to get us back in the dugout pretty quick and get the guys out of the heat. It was a really quick game. Im sure nobody wanted to be out there, but we have to do it, so you might as well make the best of it, I guess." The Rangers took a 1-0 lead in the fourth on the two-out RBI single by Beltre when his liner struck Quintana near the left hip and ricocheted past Youkilis at first. Kinsler, who had walked and moved to second on a grounder, scored on the play. Chicago got it back in the bottom half as a walk and two singles loaded the bases before Alexei Ramirez hit an RBI grounder that Beltre made a nice play on while diving to his left. Dayan Viciedo then walked to re-load the bases before Harrison fanned Tyler Flowers. NOTES: Rangers RHP Yu Darvish won the Final Vote from the fans and will represent the AL in Tuesdays All-Star game, giving Texas eight All-Stars. Chicagos Jake Peavy was also a finalist. ... Announced attendance was 21,288 and many of the fans in the upper deck sat under the overhang to stay in the shade. ... Rangers RHP Neftali Feliz (elbow ligament sprain) and Koji Uehara (strained right lat) are scheduled to throw bullpen sessions Friday. ' ' '
