SEATTLE — The bullpens for the Angels and Seattle Mariners both blew Saturday night’s game.

Except the Angels blew it three times.

The Angels blew a two-run lead in the eighth and one-run leads in the 10th and 11th, finally falling 9-8 to the Seattle Mariners in a gut-wrenching 11-inning game.

It snapped the Angels’ four-game winning streak.

Jim Johnson got the ball in the 10th with the Angels having taken a 7-6 lead on a Chris Young RBI single in the top of the inning.

Johnson gave up a leadoff single to Guillermo Heredia. After a sacrifice, Jean Segura hit a grounder to first baseman Jefry Marte, whose throw to Johnson was wild, allowing the tying run to score. Segura was then caught stealing second.

Johnson took the mound again in the 11th, after the Angels had re-taken the lead on Andrelton Simmons’ RBI single, and he blew it again. Johnson walked leadoff hitter Robinson Cano and then gave up an RBI double to Kyle Seager. Eduardo Paredes then entered and gave up a game-winning double to Ryon Healy.

It spoiled what could have a tidy victory, as the Angels led 4-0 in the sixth and still led 4-2 in the eighth before all the chaos.

Rookie Justin Anderson, who had not allowed a run in his first six big league games, came in to get the final two outs of the inning, but he did nt retire any of the three hitters he faced. In the middle of that was a allowed an RBI single to Ryon Healy and a two-run homer to Mike Zunino, putting the Mariners up 5-4. They added an insurance run with Blake Parker in the game.

In the ninth, Seattle closer Edwin Diaz entered and retired the first two hitters easily. Mike Trout then yanked a double down the left-field line, his third hit of the game. Justin Upton then delivered a ballpark-silencing two-run homer to straightaway center, tying the game, 6-6.

It was the first blown save in 14 tries this season for Diaz.

All the late dramatics overshadowed a solid start from Tyler Skaggs and a nice game from Jefry Marte, who had a three-run homer among his three hits.

Skaggs was charged with two runs in 5-1/3 innings, the latest in a week that has seen Angels starters post a 1.77 ERA.

Skaggs did not allow a run in the first five innings, allowing only three hits. He escaped a jam in the third, striking out Mitch Haniger to strand two runners.

In the sixth, just after Marte had belted a homer to put the Angels up 4-0, Skaggs ran into trouble and couldn’t escape.

Jean Segura led off with a single and Haniger then doubled into right-center, sending Haniger to third. Both runners scored on Robinson Cano’s double into center. Skaggs then walked Nelson Cruz.

Skaggs got Kyle Seager on a groundout, and then Manager Mike Scioscia turned the game over to the bullpen with three consecutive right-handers due.

Cam Bedrosian nearly gave up a three-run homer to Healy, but the ball was barely foul. He then struck him out looking at a pitch at the knees, or perhaps below them, judging by Healy’s animated response. Bedrosian got Zunino on a fly ball to end the threat, preserving the 4-2 lead.

Noé Ramírez and José Álvarez would get through the seventh, but the Angels couldn’t hold the lead through the eighth.

Álvarez gave up a leadoff single to Cruz before retiring Kyle Seager. Anderson then came in for the same stretch of right-handers that Bedrosian had worked through in the sixth.

He didn’t fare as well.

Healy greeted him with a single on a 99 mph fastball, cutting the lead to 4-3. Anderson then went with four straight sliders to Zunino, who hit the last one into the Angels bullpen, for a go-ahead two-run homer.

Anderson then walked Guillermo Heredia, ending his night. Heredia would come around to score after Parker gave up a double and threw a wild pitch, putting the Mariners up 6-4.
