SEATTLE -- A night that began with cheers for new Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. echoing through Safeco Field ended with chants for Shawn OMalley, a kid that grew up a few hours southeast of Seattle idolizing the Hall of Famer.A little surreal for OMalley? Yep. Deserved? Absolutely.The fact it ended like that, it just seemed like a Griffey type of night, OMalley said. A home run to go up, late in the innings, it was just fitting.OMalley capped Seattles comeback with a three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning and the Mariners rallied from a four-run deficit for an 8-6 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.A few hours after the Mariners retired Griffeys No. 24 during an emotional pregame ceremony, OMalley sent another charge through Safeco Field. OMalley turned on an 0-1 pitch from Deolis Guerra and drove it into the right-field seats for his second home run of the season.Moments later, OMalley made a backhanded stop deep in the hole at shortstop to get Andrelton Simmons for the first out of the eighth inning and briefly Safeco Field began chanting OMalleys name.It was pretty hard to miss. It was pretty loud, OMalley said. That was pretty special, pretty cool. Never had that happen before.The conclusion to the day was celebratory for the Mariners, but it certainly didnt start that way. Seattle fell behind 3-0 on Mike Trouts 21st home run of the season in the first inning, and trailed 5-1 after Trouts RBI triple and Albert Pujols sacrifice fly in the third.Arguably the best center fielder of this generation was doing his best to upstage a night belonging to one of the best center fielders ever.But the Mariners chipped away at the deficit, taking the words of Griffey from his pregame speech when he looked at the Seattle dugout and told this current crop to keep fighting as it hangs on the fringe of the wild-card race. Guillermo Heredia hit the first home run of his career leading off the third inning and Franklin Gutierrez added a two-run shot in the fifth to pull within 6-4.Seattle missed an opportunity in the sixth inning by leaving the bases loaded. Reliever Mike Morin fell behind 3-0 to Gutierrez, who was given the freedom to swing and popped up to shortstop for the second out. Robinson Cano then popped out to right field to end the threat.The Mariners finally took advantage of the shaky pitching in the seventh. Jose Valdez (0-1) opened the seventh getting Nelson Cruz, but then issued three straight walks to load the bases. Valdez was called up from the minors on Saturday.He looked good against Cruz. He threw some really good breaking balls but then just lost his release point, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.Leonys Martins sacrifice fly off Guerra pulled Seattle within 6-5 before OMalleys shot.Confidence has gotten into him, Seattle manager Scott Servais said of OMalley. He believes hes a big league player and I think youre seeing it in front of our eyes.BULLPEN PICKUPDrew Storen (2-3) got the final out of the seventh to pick up the victory and Edwin Diaz pitched the ninth for his fourth save.But the star for Seattle was Cody Martin, who pitched 2 2/3 innings in relief of starter Taijuan Walker. Martin allowed only two hits, one of them an infield single.Everybody is having a good time and were like a little family out there, Martin said. We just have a great time during the games.ROSTER SHUFFLEAngels: RHP Tim Lincecum was designated for assignment on Saturday after giving up six runs in the first inning a night earlier. Lincecum was 2-6 with a 9.16 ERA in nine starts with the Angels.Mariners: Seattle made a pair of trades, acquiring Arquimedes Caminero from Pittsburgh and switch-pitcher Pat Venditte from Toronto for players to be named later. Caminero is expected to report to Seattle on Monday, while Venditte is headed for Triple-A.UP NEXTAngels: Matt Shoemaker (6-11) will go for his second straight victory. Over his last 15 starts, Shoemaker has a 2.85 ERA.Mariners: James Paxton (3-5) looks to build on his last start when he allowed one run in eight innings against Boston but ended up being left out of the decision.

The Jets are now 0-5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs. The game started the same way the Vancouver game started the night before, with the Jets taking the first two penalties of the game and killing off the first, but the Oilers getting on the board first, scoring on the second man-advantage. Womens Avalanche Jerseys . After slipping from the summit during the week, the Gunners overcame struggling Crystal Palace 2-0 on Sunday thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlains second-half brace. Avalanche Jerseys Store . It says Pocklingtons lawyer filed the appeal Friday in a California court. CTV Edmonton also says Pocklington gave a $100,000 cash deposit as part of the conditions of his bail, and that he will be out on bail until his appeal is heard.Barcelona manager Luis Enrique believes Gary Neville has made some telling changes on the pitch since taking over at Valencia, but is confident his side can fend off whatever comes their way in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final. Valencia continue to struggle for consistency in La Liga, with a 1-0 home defeat by Sporting Gijon leaving the club eight league games without a victory and with only a five-point cushion above the relegation places.However, Enrique has been impressed by the way Neville has approached his first managerial role - the former Manchester United defender and England assistant having been appointed in early December 2015. You can already see what Neville has done with Valencia, Enrique said. They are great at getting the ball into the area, and they have some quality players to move the ball up the field. The manager has made changes and well have to deal with them.Valencia will create difficulties. They are a team that dares to generate pressure and they have some fine individuals. This wasnt an easy draw for either of us, but were hoping to play well and set things up nicely for the second leg. Luis Enrique has overseen 26 matches unbeaten at Barcelona After everything this club has done in recent years, its only logical that they are saying were the favourites, But we have to prove that were better on the pitch.dddddddddddd.Barcelona defeated Atletico Madrid at the Nou Camp on Saturday to take control at the top of the table as they extended their unbeaten run to 26 matches in all competitions, and Enrique is determined to maintain his squads focus through to the end of the campaign. More than setting one record or the other, what we have to aim for is trophies. This long unbeaten streak will help us to do that, but its no guarantee of anything, Enrique said.We are the defending champions of most competitions we play in, so what we have to do is go out and defend those titles.Enrique added: We are developing physically and we are performing well, so things are going more than well for us. We are ready to compete in what will not be easy conditions going into the final stage of the season.Follow Barcelona v Valencia on skysports.com and the Sky Sports apps with our live blog.
