ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Chris Iannetta drove in Kole Calhoun with a two-out hit in the 11th inning, and the Los Angeles Angels rallied past the Seattle Mariners 3-2 Friday night for their eighth victory in 10 games.

Matt Shoemaker pitched five scoreless innings of two-hit ball in his major league debut for the Angels, who came back from a late two-run deficit and several missed opportunities to win the opener of the final homestand in their disappointing season.

After Calhoun's one-out hit off rookie Bobby LaFromboise (0-1), Iannetta put a long single into deepest left-center. Calhoun slid home to give Iannetta his fifth career game-ending hit.

Nick Franklin had three hits for the Mariners, who have lost 10 of 12 to fall 20 games below .500.

Cory Rasmus (1-1) pitched the 11th to earn his first major league victory.
