SEATTLE — The Angels wasted their best starting pitching performance of the young season with another anemic offensive performance.

The Angels lost 2-1 to the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night, as they fell to 1-5 for the second time in franchise history, the first since their inaugural season in 1961.

It was the third time that they’ve had four hits or fewer, and the fourth time they’ve failed to score three runs. The offense has slumped while they’ve been without two of their three best hitters, Justin Upton and Shohei Ohtani.

The Angels had a shot in the ninth inning, when Mike Trout walked and went to third on a one-out single by Andrelton Simmons. Albert Pujols struck out and Jonathan Lucroy grounded out.

Trevor Cahill gave up just one run on three hits in his six innings, but he was gone by the time reliever Luís García gave up a tie-breaking homer to Daniel Vogelbach in the eighth inning.

Coming into the game, the Angels were hitting .188, and their slump continued against Seattle lefty Marco Gonzales.

Lucroy blasted a double to the warning track in right-center field leading off the second. The Angels moved him over and got him in with two ground balls, taking a 1-0 lead.

It was just the third inning of the season – at that point 47 innings old – that the Angels had a lead.

Unfortunately for them, they could not add to it. The Angels did not have another baserunner until Lucroy singled with two outs in the seventh, and he was stranded.

They wasted a strong performance by Cahill, who began slicing through the Mariners lineup from the first pitch. He retired the first seven hitters before allowing a double to Vogelbach, and then he proceeded to retire the next nine.

He was efficient with his pitches too. He needed 12 or fewer pitches to get through four of his first five innings. He threw 17 in the fourth, when he struck out two.

Cahill also made good use of his cutter, the new pitch he developed over the winter.

In his start on Opening Day, Cahill threw just six cutters out of his 86 pitches. On Tuesday night, he threw 23 among his 83 pitches. The Mariners swung and missed at seven of them.

Cahill threw a 2-and-0 cutter to Dee Gordon with one out in the sixth, and Gordon yanked it down the first base line for a double. An out later, Cahill left a 3-and-2 changeup over the middle to Mitch Haniger, who lined it into left for a game-tying double.

Cahill needed 23 pitches to get out of the sixth without further damage, lifting his total to 83. At that point, Manager Brad Ausmus decided to go to the bullpen.

Justin Anderson worked a scoreless seventh, but then García got too much of the plate with a 97 mph fastball and Vogelbach muscled it over the center field fence to put the Mariners on top in the eighth.
