LA Angels of Anaheim (8-13) at Seattle Mariners (9-15), 10:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: LA Angels - C.J. Wilson (1-0, 4.13) Seattle - Aaron Harang (0-2, 10.24)

(Sports Network) - Aaron Harang takes another crack at his first win of the season on Friday when the Seattle Mariners continue a four-game set against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Safeco Field.

After a so-so Seattle debut, Harang was absolutely hammered by the Texas Rangers on Sunday, as he allowed eight runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings to fall to 0-2, while ballooning his ERA to 10.24. He had allowed three runs in five innings in a loss to Detroit to start his Mariners career.

"My first start was OK, but I was just getting a feel for things. The other day down in Texas, I was just making too many mistakes. I wasn't sharp," Harang said. "I've been talking with (pitching coach) Carl (Willis) and (manager Eric) Wedge about it, and I'm trying to get back in the groove of things. It's something I'll work on and it's just a matter of getting the feel for getting back into games and limiting the mistakes."

Seattle wouldn't mind Harang pitching as well as Brandon Maurer did in Thursday's opener. The rookie right-hander scattered seven hits and struck out six over 6 1/3 scoreless innings to lead the Mariners to a 6-0 win.

"Maurer really set the tone and threw a great ball game. He did a great job of executing pitches. He was down when he wanted it to be down, he was elevated when he wanted it to be elevated," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said.

Kyle Seager scorched a two-run homer and knocked in three overall, while Carlos Peguero smacked a solo shot and Jason Bay added a pair of RBI for the Mariners, who won for only the second time in their last seven tries.

Garrett Richards (1-1) absorbed the loss after giving up five runs on nine hits and two walks over seven-plus innings for the Halos, who have lost two straight and three of their last four games.

"I thought Garrett (Richards) pitched much better than his line scores will show," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of his starter. "He had a chance to put some hitters away but he wasn't able to do it early."

On Friday, the Angels will rely on lefty C.J. Wilson, who is 1-0 with a 4.13 ERA. Wilson didn't get a decision on Sunday against the Tigers, as he yielded three runs and five hits with four walks in six innings of his team's 4-3 win.

"I was missing with my breaking ball a lot early," Wilson said. "It was breaking way too big, then I couldn't throw my curveball for a strike and my changeup was kind of a non-factor. I just had to go out there with a fastball, slider and cutter and compete."

Wilson, though, has enjoyed some success versus the Mariners, posting a 5-1 mark with a 2.11 ERA in his last seven starts against them.

The Angels were 11-8 against the Mariners last season.
