Mariners' Leake ideal through 6 innings vs Angels

Mike Leake loses perfect game in 9th on Luis Rengifo single

Mike Leake loses perfect game in 9th on Luis Rengifo single

Angels first baseman Albert Pujols missed the game with left hamstring tightness.

First baseman Daniel Vogelbach also starred for Seattle, hitting two home runs and driving in six runs. The Angels pitched a combined no-hitter that night in Anaheim while the entire club wore jerseys honoring late teammate Tyler Skaggs.

The fans gave Leake a standing ovation and he quickly waved to acknowledge their cheers.

Leake lost the ideal game and the no-hitter in the ninth, but he didn't lose the shutout, getting Brian Goodwin to pop out to second base and Mike Trout to strike out swinging to end the game.

The Angels hadn't come close to a hit and Leake hadn't gone to a three-ball count before Rengifo grounded a clean hit to right field on Leake's 79th pitch.

Leake did not get out of the first inning in his last start, which occurred exactly one week ago.

The last flawless game came in 2012 from Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez.

Bielsa's side will complete their pre-season preparations with a trip to Italian Serie A club Cagliari on Saturday, 27 July. We do not understand and can't decide who will win in this battle Western Sydney Wanderers FC v Leeds United .

Leake kept the Angels off the bases with a fastball that was right around 88 miles per hour, along with a cutter, changeup and curve. "You've got the cutter and sinker moving in two directions". He can sometimes drop his arm a little bit on that and make it sweep away from righties. "It was his night".

Seattle's previous no-hitter was thrown by James Paxton against Toronto last September.

Vogelbach made it 3-0 with a homer in the fourth.

The St. Louis Cardinals edged past the Cincinnati Reds 12-11, the Philadelphia Phillies were 6-1 winners over the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Cleveland Indians ran out 10-5 winners over the Kansas City Royals. Reliever Keynan Middleton's rehab assignment at Triple-A Salt Lake City has been shut down due to numbness and tingling in his pitching arm. He is expected to return Saturday.

Dillon Peters will make his fifth appearance and first start of the season in place of Andrew Heaney who was just placed on the injured list.

In Cincinnati, Jose Martinez homered and singled during a 10-run rally in the sixth inning and St. Louis overcame a seven-run deficit for a wild win over the Reds.
