SEATTLE -- In his third start since returning from the disabled list, Jason Vargas felt right at home back on the Safeco Field mound. Vans Sk8 Hi Leather . Vargas (7-5), who spent his past four seasons in Seattle, allowed one run in 6 1-3 innings and struck out five to earn the victory and the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Mariners 5-1 on Saturday night. It was Vargas first win since picking up the decision in an 11-3 victory over the Mariners on June 17. "He had to pitch out of some jams, but when he had to, he got a couple double play balls," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "I thought Jason did a great job. It was great to see him get into the seventh and get to 100 pitches. He maintained his stuff. He pitched and I think thats when hes at his best." The Mariners had multiple runners on base in the second and fourth innings, but came up empty each time as Vargas worked out of trouble. In the fourth, Vargas walked Justin Smoak and Endy Chavez singled to put runners on the corners with no outs, but the Mariners left both runners stranded. "We spread out some hits here and there, but we never really put anything together," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. "You got to put more heat on them offensively. We didnt put a whole lot of pressure on them tonight. We got to make it more difficult for them than we did tonight." Vargas said he didnt feel much different from his first two starts since returning from the DL, but this time he managed to get the result. "I was just able to make pitches when the time came," Vargas said. The Angels jumped on top early against Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez (4-1). After a walk to Erick Aybar, Mike Trout hit his 22nd home run to give the Angels a 2-0 lead. Chavez limited the early damage by robbing a would-be home run from Hank Conger in the second inning. Ramirez and Vargas traded scoreless innings until Los Angeles managed to extend the lead in the seventh. Grant Green singled and J.B. Shuck doubled to put two runners in scoring position with one out. Ramirez nearly worked out of the jam as Green was thrown out at the plate on a grounder to second, but Chavez dropped a fly ball that would have ended the inning and allowed Shuck to score to increase the lead to 3-0. Humberto Quintero and Dustin Ackley led off the seventh inning with a pair of singles and Nick Franklin came to the plate to pinch-hit for Brendan Ryan. With a 1-1 count, Franklin tried to call time, but it wasnt granted by plate umpire Ron Kulpa. Vargas appeared to hear Franklins request while checking the runner at second base in his windup and stopped his motion. Kulpa called a balk and allowed both Quintero and Ackley to advance a base. "When I heard it loud like that I just assumed it was the umpire but it wasnt," Vargas said. "Thats all on me. I cant take that for granted." Franklin grounded out to third to score Quintero and put the Mariners on the board for the first time in two nights and chase Vargas from the game. Michael Kohn managed to work out of the jam. Despite hitting Kyle Seager with a pitch, Kohn struck out Brad Miller and Kendrys Morales to hold the Mariners at bay. The Angels added two more runs off reliever Brandon Maurer in the eighth inning. After a single from Mark Trumbo, Kole Calhoun tripled to left-centre field to score a run. Chris Nelson followed with an RBI single to drive home Calhoun and extend the Angels lead to 5-1.

Although head coach Randy Carlyle jokingly wondered how much actual training Bolland got done while in London. "I dont know how much training goes on when you go back to the junior team that you played for so I wouldnt read too much into that," laughed Carlyle after the Maple Leafs were put through an up-tempo practice that concluded with a 10-minute bag skate on Thursday. http://www.vansshoesclearancesale.com/vans-sk8-hi-clearance/sk8-hi-reissue.html .

LONDON, Ont. -- Inspired by their late teammate, the Edmonton Oil Kings went to their seemingly bottomless reserves to win the 2014 MasterCard Memorial Cup. The Oil Kings carried the No. 26 jersey of Kristian Pelss with them Sunday at Budweiser Gardens as they hoisted the trophy following a 6-3 win over the Guelph Storm. Pelss was an Oil King two years ago when Edmonton won a Western Hockey League championship and lost their Memorial Cup tiebreaker in Shawinigan, Que. The 20-year-old Latvian died last year after diving off a bridge in Riga. The loss of Pelss was an emotional touchstone for Edmonton this season and particularly for the eight veterans who were his teammates in 2012. Edmonton won the Memorial Cup playing with a fearless, indefatigable, physical brand of hockey. "Everyone knows about the passing of Kristian Pelss," Henrik Samuelsson said. "He was a good buddy of mine. I know he was watching over us today and he definitely had a part of it." The son of New York Rangers assistant coach Ulf Samuelsson scored a pair of goals, including an empty-netter, and assisted on three goals Sunday. With four goals and three assists, undrafted Latvian left-winger Edgars Kulda was named the tournaments most valuable player. "I kind of got lucky with that," Kulda said. "I dont know how I got it, honestly. Its a pleasurable surprise for me. Im happy to get that one too." Kulda contributed a goal and two assists in Sundays victory. Edmonton also got goals from Cody Corbett, Tyler Robertson and Mitch Moroz. Goaltender and Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Tristan Jarry made 32 saves for the win. Robby Fabbri, Stephen Pierog and Zach Mitchell replied for the Ontario Hockey Leagues Storm, whose only loss of the tournament was the final. Guelph goaltender Justin Nichols stopped 40 shots. Edmontons run to the Cup was a marathon in many ways. Two weeks before Sundays final, they blew a three-goal lead at home in Game 6 of their WHL championship series. The Oil Kings had to travel to Portland, Ore., the following day to win Game 7 less than 24 hours later. Their triple overtime semifinal win over the Val-dOr Foreurs on Friday was the longest game in tournament history at 102 minutes 42 seconds. Add in a double overtime loss to the Foreurs in the preliminary round and the Oil Kings had played the equivalent of two more games in the tournament than Guelph heading into Sundays game. In both overtime games, Edmonton had two-goal leads and third-period leads. "We really did make it quite hard on ourselves, but it shows how much we play for each other," Edmonton assistant captain Curtis Lazar said. Vans Old Skool Sale. Guelph took the most efficient route to the final and were thus the more rested team. The Storm outscored their opponents by a combined 18-7 to go unbeaten through three preliminary-round games and earn the bye to the championship game. Edmonton went 1-2 in the round robin, including a 5-2 loss to Guelph to open the tournament. But the Oil Kings played a strong two-way game Sunday using their size and toughness to both create the space to score goals and make the Storm pay a physical price for the puck. Led by captain Griffin Reinhart, a New York Islanders prospect, they were a punishing team in their own end and were backstopped by the reliable Jarry. "They out-willed us," Storm coach Scott Walker said. "They were big, but we usually use our speed and we werent speedy tonight. When your let their size take advantage by not using your speed, its tough. "I dont think we played our best, but Im not going to take anything away from them. They were the better team tonight. We played in fits and starts. Im proud of the guys, but its a tough tournament to win." The Storm led 2-1 after the opening period Sunday, but the Oil Kings scored three unanswered goals in the second. When Guelph pulled within one in the third, Edmonton restored the two-goal cushion. "Weve got an unbelievable culture built here," said Moroz, an Edmonton Oilers draft pick. "It doesnt hurt when you have a guardian angel upstairs as well. "Its always storybook with us. We always believed in each other and we deserve this." A previous version of the Edmonton Oil Kings won Memorial Cups in 1966 and 1963 before relocating to Portland. This was the first Memorial Cup in the current franchises short seven-year history. The WHL ended a three-year run of Quebec Major Junior Hockey League teams winning the Cup. The Oil Kings were also the first WHL team to claim it since the Spokane Chiefs in 2008. WHL teams have won the most Cups since the tournament went to a round-robin format in 1972 with 19. The OHL has won 14 and the QMJHL 10. The Memorial Cup has been given to Canadas junior hockey champions since 1919 in memory of those who died in the First World War. Sixty teams in the Western, Ontario and Quebec major junior leagues begin play every September. The three league champions join a host team in the annual tournament to determine the Canadian Hockey League champions. The 2015 MasterCard Memorial Cup will be held in Quebec City. ' ' '
