The Blue Jays, held hitless for eight innings by Seattle's Mark Langston, rallied for three runs in the ninth today and beat the Mariners 3-2, with George Bell driving in the winning run with a bloop single off reliever Mike Schooler. Langston had shackled the Blue Jays through the first eight innings, allowing only one baserunner, on shortstop Omar Vizquel's error in the seventh. But in the ninth, Langston unraveled quickly. Tom Lawless, pinch-hitting for Lloyd Moseby, led off the inning with a solid single to center, ending Langston's chance to become the first Seattle pitcher to hurl a no-hitter.

He pitched one inning in a 12-inning, 5-2 victory over the Angels for career save No. 83--tops in club history.
