Angels hold on for 4-2 win after scary moment at Mariners game
SEATTLE (AP) — Albert Pujols and C.J. Cron hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning and six relievers combined to shut down Seattle after starter Matt Shoemaker was hit in the head with a line drive, leading the Los Angeles Angels over the Mariners 4-2 on Sunday. Shoemaker was hit on the right side of his head with one out in the second inning on a line drive from Kyle Seager. Seager's liner had an exit velocity of 105 mph, according to MLB Statcast. Shoemaker was able to turn his head slightly to avoid a direct blow to his face but was unable to get his mitt up in time.
