ANAHEIM Andre Dawson Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Kole Calhoun and Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia were surprised to find out just how long the right fielder’s hitless streak really was, considering how good a second half of the season he’s had.On Sunday, Calhoun broke out of his 0-for-25 slump in a big way.Calhoun hit a tiebreaking home run and Justin Upton homered in his third straight game as the Angels avoided a four-game sweep with a 4-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners.“There were some good swings in there. You definitely feel it,” Calhoun said of the hitless streak. “If you put a good swing on the ball you definitely feel like it should be a hit but sometimes it’s not and that’s just the game.”Calhoun’s solo drive with two out in the seventh inning off reliever Nick Vincent (3-4) was his 19th home run.“I didn’t even realize it was (25) to be honest with you,” Scioscia said. “He’s been hitting the ball hard since he came back. Little surprised to hear it was 0-for-25. It was a good time for it and it was a big hit.”Calhoun also had a stint on the disabled list with a right oblique strain in June, but after a slow start to the season, he turned things around.Upton extended his home run streak with a three-run shot in the third, giving the Angels a 3-1 lead. Upton has hit four home runs in his last three games. The homer was Upton’s 30th of the season and marked his third consecutive season of at least 30 home runs.Shohei Ohtani appeared to be limping as he jogged off the field in the eighth inning after he slid awkwardly into second base and was caught stealing.“He tweaked his ankle a little bit, but you know I don’t think there will be any issues with it Wei-Yin Chen Jersey ,” Scioscia said. “He slid a bit late and awkward. He’ll be fine for Tuesday.”Taylor Cole (2-2) got the win, and Ty Buttrey struck out the side in the ninth inning to earn his third save. The rookie is making a strong case to pitch in the back end of the bullpen next season.“That was awesome, punching out the side in the ninth,” Calhoun said. “He’s been huge for us. Going forward, he seems like he’s going to be a really, really big piece.”Seattle’s Daniel Vogelbach hit a first-pitch, two-run homer off starter Jaime Barria to tie the game at 3-all in the fourth inning.Barria allowed three runs on six hits in five innings. He was not involved in the decision.Starter Marco Gonzales, who was 5-0 in his five previous starts against the Angels this season, was not involved in the decision http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-jeff-locke-jersey , either. Gonzales allowed three runs on six hits in five innings. He struck out six and walked two.“Marco wasn’t quite as sharp as he was last time out,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “You’ve got to give him a ton of credit. He gutted it out and got through the five innings and gave us a chance in a tie ballgame. In the starts he makes down the stretch, we’re not going to overextend him, but I think it’s important he continues to pitch and finishes the season strong.”Second baseman David Fletcher left the game with a left hamstring strain in the first inning. He hit a double to left and just before he got to first, he did a stutter step and appeared to suffer the injury before he got to the bag. He jogged to second base. Manager Mike Scioscia and a trainer went to check on him, and he was taken out of the game after a quick conversation.“He’ll be evaluated (Monday),” Scioscia said. “Naturally, any time you tweak a hamstring with two weeks to go in the season it’s not good.”Fletcher said he will not go on the team’s road trip to Oakland and Houston. He’s not sure about his status for the remainder of the season.The Angels Mike Trout was given a rare day off Sunday.Mitch Haniger hit a run-scoring double and was 2-for-4 for Seattle.HELPING HANDHailey Dawson, an 8-year-old from Las Vegas Cameron Maybin Jersey , threw out the ceremonial first pitch with her robotic hand. She had the rare opportunity to have Trout catch for her because he wasn’t in the lineup Sunday. She dabbed after Trout caught her pitch, then he gave her a hug. Dawson completed a ceremonial first pitch at all 30 MLB stadiums this season, and her ceremonial pitch at Angel Stadium was the final one.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: LHP James Paxton (pneumonia) was to play long toss Sunday in Seattle, and if all goes well he’s expected to join the team in Houston on Monday. … RHP Felix Hernandez (hamstring) is still in Seattle, but is expected to join the team on the road trip.Angels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (left adductor strain) was scheduled to throw in the bullpen on Sunday in an attempt to start again before the regular season ends Sept. 30.UP NEXTMariners: LHP Wade LeBlanc (8-4, 3.56) will start Monday in Houston. The Mariners are 15-9 when he starts, but he’s 1-1 with a 6.32 ERA in nine career appearances against the Astros.Angels: RHP Felix Pena (3-4, 3.75) will start Tuesday in Oakland. Pena threw six scoreless innings to earn a win against Texas. He is 0-0 with a 5.40 ERA in two career games (one start) against Oakland. The Baltimore Orioles come into Kansas City on Friday for the start of their three-game weekend series in an unusual position — riding a three-game winning streak.Andrew Cashner (4-12, 4.79 ERA) will help the Orioles try for their second four-game winning streak of the season. He goes against Brad Keller (6-5 Lewis Brinson Jersey , 3.33).Baltimore (40-94) is coming off a three-sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays. Toronto had scored victories in 12 of the first 13 games between the teams this season before the Orioles rolled over the Jays, scoring 29 runs in three victories.Article continues below ...Right fielder Adam Jones handled his shift from his long-time position in center without a word of complaint, trying to help rookie Cedric Mullins adjust to life in the big leagues. Jones was one of the big bats in this series.He finished with four hits in Tuesday’s win and banged out a grand slam in a 12-5 rout of Toronto on Wednesday night.“It’s just fun to see him have fun,” Baltimore starter Alex Cobb said to MASNsports.com about Jones doing well late in a season that doesn’t mean much. “He’s meant so much to this organization. For him to go out there and have big moments like that in a season that’s kind of lost for us, it’s fun to see and fun to be a part of.”Cashner will try and continue the fun in Kansas City on Friday night. He’s 0-2 with a 2.45 ERA versus the Royals in his career but has pitched better lately as Baltimore has played better.Keller will be making his first career appearance versus the Orioles.The Orioles are playing a team they’re “battling” for the title of worst record in the majors, something neither franchise is happy about. Four years ago, these two teams met in the American League Championship Series.Kansas City (42-91) is a bit behind Baltimore, but the Royals also have found more recent success, especially in the past week. The sweep of the Jays was the Orioles’ first sweep of a three-game series since late last season.But the Royals have won two series in a row http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-jt-riddle-jersey , taking two of three from Cleveland before winning both games against the Detroit Tigers.In Wednesday’s win over Detroit, longtime Royals player Alex Gordon hit his 170th homer as a member of the franchise and moved to fourth place all time. He said he didn’t even realize where he ranked on the home run list.“I just wanted to make it to the big leagues and not mess up,” Gordon told the media after that game. “Any time you have been with an organization as long as I have, you’re going to pass some people. I’m just an old guy moving up the list.”The Royals made a move Wednesday, trading Lucas Duda to the Atlanta Braves for cash, which makes him eligible for postseason play. Duda was on a one-year deal with Kansas City.Baltimore also has lost outfielder/designated hitter Mark Trumbo to a knee surgery. He will miss the rest of the season. Mullins is battling a sore hip.
