SEATTLE — The Angels lost a game and two more players on Wednesday afternoon.

The Angels’ 8-6 loss to the Seattle Mariners included Garrett Richards going down with a left hamstring strain and Zack Cozart coming out with a left shoulder strain.

Still, the Angels rallied from early 4-1 deficit to take a 6-4 lead before losing in the bottom of the ninth.

The game ended on Mitch Haniger’s two-run homer against Oliver Drake, who was in the game because the Angels’ bullpen had been stretched thin by Richards’ departure after two innings. There was no immediate word on the severity of his injury. Neither was there much detail on Cozart, who hurt his shoulder trying for a diving play in the third.

Not long after that, a Nelson Cruz homer put the Mariners up 4-1.

And then the game got crazy, with the comeback sparked by three hits from David Fletcher, a near cycle from Chris Young and Nolan Fontana’s second big league homer.

Mike Trout also continuing terrorizing the Mariners, with two more hits. After that, they intentionally walked him twice, once to put the potential go-ahead run in scoring position and once with the bases empty.

The Angels were swept by the Mariners, and they lost another pitcher.

Richards left the game after two innings with a left hamstring strain. Richards’ fastball was mostly around 94 mph, down from his normal 96-97 mph, in his two-inning outing. He gave up a pair of runs in the second inning, on four consecutive hits, and then did not come back out for the third.

Down 4-1 after Cruz’s homer against Noé Ramírez, the Angels got back a couple runs in the fourth on Fletcher’s first career hit, a two-run triple. They tied the game in the sixth when Chris Young tripled and scored on a Luis Valbuena sacrifice fly.

In the seventh, Fontana – who had replaced Cozart – gave the Angels their first lead of the day with an opposite-field solo homer. It was Fontana’s second hit in 27 major league at-bats … and both are homers.

Young hit a homer later in the inning to put the Angels ahead 6-4.

At that point, though, they still had nine outs to maneuver, with a thin bullpen.

Blake Parker, who had been the Angels closer lately, entered in the seventh after Dee Gordon’s leadoff single. The Mariners got a run back on Jean Segura’s RBI double, but the Angels held the lead thanks to a heads-up play by Fletcher.

Segura was at third with one out when Nelson Cruz hit a fly ball to shallow left. Justin Upton’s throw to the plate pulled catcher Martín Maldonado about 30 feet from the plate. Since no one was covering home, Segura broke toward the plate. Fletcher, who had been between third and home, took a flip from Maldonado on the run and tagged out Segura.

Unfortunately for the Angels, the lead didn’t last another inning. Parker gave up a homer to Ryon Healy – his third in three games – to knot the score 6-6.
