ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ketel Marte drove in the tie-breaking run with a sacrifice fly, Leonys Martin scored from second base on a bunt, and the Seattle Mariners held on for a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.

Robinson Cano had three hits, Kyle Seager and Chris Iannetta each had two hits and scored a run as the Mariners won for the 10th time in 12 games to move two games behind Baltimore for the second AL wild card.

Drew Storen (3-3) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win. Mariners closer Edwin Diaz gave up a run and loaded the bases with one out in the ninth, but struck out Jefry Marte and got Andrelton Simmons to ground out for his eighth save in eight chances.

Yunel Escobar went 5 for 5 for Los Angeles, his fifth career five-hit game. Tyler Skaggs (1-2) gave up four runs and six hits in 3 1/3 innings.
