Mariners pitcher Marco Gonzales pitched only his second complete game of his career with 2-1 victory over the Angels on Monday. 

As the biting curveball snapped into the strikezone, freezing Luis Rengifo in surprise without a swing and allowing home plate umpire Malachi Moore to make an emphatic strike three call to end the top of the eighth inning, Marco Gonzales charged off the mound toward the first base dugout of Angel Stadium, adrenaline and emotion pulsing through his veins.

It was his 21st consecutive hitter retired in the game and he was three outs from a complete game victory … well, if he was allowed to pitch the last inning.
