ANAHEIM, Calif. Site Air Max Pas Cher Chine . -- Ask the streaking Seattle Mariners what the primary catalyst for their success has been over the past few weeks, and they wont say home runs or quality starting pitching.Theyll say its fun.Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager homered to lead the Mariners past the Los Angeles Angels 2-1 on Wednesday night, extending their longest winning streak of the season to eight games.The surging Mariners moved within 1 1/2 games of Toronto for the second AL wild card, with Detroit the only team in between.This environment is really special right now, Seager said. It starts with (manager Scott Servais). Hes built this culture and its a lot of fun. Theres a lot of belief here.Hisashi Iwakuma pitched into the seventh inning and earned his 16th win for Seattle (78-68), which completed a three-game sweep.Its the first time the Mariners have won eight in a row since July 2013. They have the longest active streak in the majors.Guys are really confident, really happy and the energy is up, Servais said. Were just focusing on one game, thats the key. And then you get on the plane and youre thinking, just win the series. And you win the first couple and you think, why not sweep it? Thats kind of been our attitude.Cruz hit a go-ahead homer in the seventh off Jose Alvarez (1-3), his 37th of the season and fourth in four games. It was the sluggers 10th home run this year against Los Angeles, more than any other Mariners player has hit in one season against a single opponent.Jay Buhner belted nine off Minnesota in 1995.Seager hit his 29th of the year off Jhoulys Chacin in the fifth to tie the score at 1.Edwin Diaz pitched a perfect ninth for his 16th save.Iwakuma (16-11) won his second straight, allowing one run and five hits in 6 1/3 innings. He exited after Cliff Pennington bunted for a leadoff single and advanced on Juan Graterols sacrifice.He dialed it up. You could see the look on his face, Servais said. Hes very good at slowing the game down. Its almost to the point where it drives you crazy, like, lets go! But thats what he does; he slows it down, he executes pitches.Tom Wilhelmsen retired the next two batters.The bullpen was really solid tonight and they needed to be, Servais said. Theres not much room for error.Chacin came out of the Angels bullpen to make his first start since Aug. 21, in place of injured Tyler Skaggs. Chacin settled for a no-decision, limiting the Mariners to one run and three hits in six innings while striking out five.I think he commanded the sinker, changed speeds very well, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. And for a guy who hadnt started very well, he threw six strong innings against a team who has been hitting the ball well.Since losing five straight starts through June and July, Chacin is 1-0 with a 2.87 ERA as a starter.Chacin might need to make another start in place of Skaggs. An MRI revealed no damage to his surgically repaired elbow, but Skaggs will be out at least a week. He said he plans to pitch again this season, however, possibly making Chacin the odd man out in the rotation at some point.I tried to call the right pitches for him and he did an unbelievable job, Graterol said. Hes doing great. Hes throwing everything for a strike. Hes always ahead in the count.Graterol scored on a wild pitch by Iwakuma in the third.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: Skaggs had an MRI to find the cause of soreness in his left forearm. The test showed no damage to his ulnar collateral ligament, which was repaired with Tommy John surgery in 2014. The MRI came back clean but Skaggs was diagnosed with a mild pronator strain and will be shut down for at least seven days. ... RHP Cory Rasmus (groin strain) was activated from the 60-day disabled list. Rasmus hasnt pitched in a major league game since June 12 and was on a rehab assignment last week with Class-A Orem. ... RHP Matt Shoemaker (skull fracture) was transferred to the 60-day DL.UP NEXTMariners: RHP Felix Hernandez opens the series against Houston on Friday. Hernandez is 7-1 with a 4.22 ERA in his last 11 starts since returning from the disabled list on July 20. Against the Astros, he is 3-3 with a 3.45 ERA in eight starts.Angels: RHP Daniel Wright pitches the opener of a four-game series against Toronto on Thursday.

Vokoun departed practice on Saturday morning after discovering swelling in his thigh. He was taken to a local hospital where the clot was revealed. The club announced the surgery following a 5-3 exhibition loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Air Max Pas Cher Livraison Gratuite . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. . -- Nate Robinson has played for seven teams, so beating one of them is no longer a rare occurrence. ASHBURN, Va. -- Five passes for five completions and 39 yards is the balance of Kirk Cousins preseason so far. He may not like that, but hes OK with it.Now the Washington Redskins unquestioned starting quarterback, Cousins isnt concerned about the light workload heading into the third preseason game Friday night against the Buffalo Bills. The so-called dress rehearsal will be the only chance for Cousins and several other starters to prepare for the regular season with actual game action.Cousins feels like he has thrown more than five passes because of all the ones he has thrown in practice. Yet he still sees a benefit in preseason play, however much or little he gets of it.I dont know that I need to play in four, but to play in some is very helpful, Cousins said this week. I think thats what this Friday night will be all about is getting that rhythm so that when we do go out against the Steelers on Monday night, you feel like youve been there and youre ready to go and it hasnt been too long since you last took a snap in the stadium in a game-like atmosphere against a different opponent.Coach Jay Gruden opted to rest Cousins, receivers DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, linebackers Ryan Kerrigan and Will Compton and cornerbacks Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland last week against the New York Jets. None are expected to play in the preseason finale next week at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, making the Bills game an important test.Cousins and the starters should play the entire first half, Gruden said, but thats not set in stone. The game doesnt count, but Cousins has a plan for what he wants to accomplish as an offense.We want to be sharp, we want to stay healthy, Cousins said. We just want to move the football, convert third downs, stay out on the field and score points, and that really never changes.Without top running back Matt Jones (separated shoulder) and banged-up third-down back Chris Thompson, Waashington will see what it has in rookies Robert Kelley and Keith Marshall. Air Max Chine Pas Cher. The challenge is to make sure Cousins and his receivers get enough opportunities while also observing the running backs, but Gruden said that goal is one in the same because coaches need to see as much in pass protection from them as running.When youre talking about the running back position, a lot of it is pass blocking and running routes and getting out on the check-downs and picking up blitzes, Gruden said Wednesday. Thats why this is such a good game for us because coach (Rex) Ryan over there has a great blitz package and those guys have got to be on top of what theyre looking at and their identification. Well see how they do.Coaches will also get to see how Cousins does with some game rust. But hes a different quarterback now than as a backup or someone competing for the job, and it has changed his approach through training camp and the preseason.Cousins wanted to play well enough as a backup to make coaches say, We cant wait for this guy to get on the field. It may not be this Sunday, it may not be this season, but, boy, its exciting to see the way he practices and how efficient he is. We cant wait to see what hed do in a real game. Without competition, the 28-year-old gears up for the regular season.Ive heard guys say, `Training camp is my Super Bowl for some of the guys who are fighting for roster spots, Cousins said. So, when youre not fighting for that roster spot necessarily day in and day out, you can just build towards Week 1 and maybe test to see, `Can I fit that ball in there, how can I learn from this rep, and, you know, try some different things that you may fail in practice, but only for the purpose of building to be better come the first game of the regular season.
