ANAHEIM, Calif. — C.J. Wilson pitched two-hit ball for seven innings, Mike Trout scored the only run on a wild pitch by Joe Saunders and the Los Angeles Angels edged the Seattle Mariners 1-0 Wednesday night.

Wilson (6-5) struck out three, walked two and allowed only two runners as far as second base en route to his fifth straight victory over the Mariners.

Trout legged out a leadoff double in the sixth and moved to third on a flyout. He scored on the first pitch wild of the season by Saunders (5-7).

Scott Downs pitched a perfect eighth for the Angels and Ernesto Frieri did likewise in the ninth for his 16th save in 17 attempts.
