PEORIA, Ariz. -- The first at-bat went well for the Angels. Robinson Cano, the Seattle Mariners' $240-million man, could haunt the Angels this season. On Saturday, facing the Angels for the first time in a Seattle uniform, Cano struck out against C.J. Wilson. The next two at-bats did not go as well for the Angels, and neither did the game. Cano singled in two other at-bats, driving in one run and scoring another, in the Mariners' 5-3 victory over the Angels. The game was called in the bottom of the seventh inning because of rain -- lots of it. In a game in which the Angels' lineup included one regular -- outfielder Kole Calhoun -- the Angels got two of their seven hits from utility infielder Grant Green.

The Angels have launched their own ticket resale program, hoping to help season-seat holders save a few bucks while reducing the number of cut-rate tickets available on third-party websites. The Angels and New York Yankees are the only two of the 30 teams to opt out of an agreement between Major League Baseball and Stub Hub. The Angels had grown frustrated as fans realized they often could buy a cheaper ticket from Stub Hub than from the team itself. "What we're trying to accomplish is to build pricing integrity back into the secondary marketplace," said Robert Alvarado, the Angels' vice president of marketing and ticket sales.

KEY MOMENT: The Angels put the first two runners on base in the first inning when Kole Calhoun doubled to right field and Mike Trout walked. But Albert Pujols grounded into a double play and David Freese lined out to center field, killing the rally and setting the tone for a frustrating evening. The Angels scored twice in the ninth on Trout's run-scoring triple and Freese's sacrifice fly. AT THE PLATE: Justin Smoak capped a superb series with a ninth-inning home run, giving the Seattle first baseman six hits, including two home runs, and seven runs batted in. Corey Hart also singled and homered, and Brad Miller, Robinson Cano and Stefen Romero each had two hits and an RBI for the Mariners.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Bill Hall, a leading candidate for a utility spot until he was sidelined by the first of two leg injuries on Feb. 27, was released by the Angels on Friday, though it's possible he could sign another minor league deal to remain in the organization. The Angels faced a Tuesday deadline to either add Hall to the 40-man roster - virtually assuring him a spot on the big-league club - or pay him a $100,000 bonus to remain in the organization. By releasing him before Tuesday, the Angels won't have to pay Hall the $100,000 bonus.
