ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Grant Green hit a bases-loaded single off Fernando Rodney with two out in the ninth inning after Albert Pujols tied the score with an RBI double, and the Angels pulled out a 6-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.

Rodney (1-4), the former Angels’ closer, replaced Joe Beimel with one out in the eighth and retired the next two batters. He entered the ninth attempting to complete a five-out save and record the 200th of his career, but the Angels rallied for the major league-leading 30th come-from-behind victory.

Mike Trout drew a leadoff walk in the ninth and scored on Pujols’ 544th career double, which broke a tie with Tony Gwynn for 28th place all-time.

Joe Thatcher (1-1) worked a scoreless inning for the Angels.
