GAME: Angels (89-71, 3rd, AL West, - 4.0 GB) at Mariners (73-87, 4th, AL West, - 20.0 GB). GAME #: 161. SERIES: 2nd of 3 games. MEETING: 18th (Angels lead 11-6). WHEN: Tuesday, 7:10 p.m., Safeco Field, Seattle, WA. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Dan Haren (Los Angeles, 12-11, 4.35) vs.RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (Seattle, 8-5, 3.32). STREAKS: Mariners L 4; Angels W 1. TV: Root Sports. RADIO: ESPN 710, Mariners Radio Network

Despite hammering Felix Hernandez and the Mariners 8-4 Monday night, the Los Angeles Angels will not participate in the postseason. Although the Angels officially lost their chance when Oakland defeated Texas Monday, their situation might have been different if they had been able to solve Hisashi Iwakuma.

While the Angels pretty much had their way with Seattle this season, they had no luck at all when facing the 31-year-old from Japan. Iwakuma has gone 3-0, 1.54 ERA against the Angels this season and gets another crack at them Tuesday in the second game of the season-ending, three-game series.

Iwakuma will match pitches with Dan Haren, historically tough on Seattle but a 9-4 loser in his last start against the Mariners. A closer look:MARINERS: RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (8-5, 3.32 ERA, 1.28 WHIP)

The 31-year-old Iwakuma, in his first major league season, makes his 16th start and fourth against the Angels (he also made a relief appearance June 5). Iwakuma, who started the season as a reliever and then stretched out to become a starter during a minor league assignment, defeated the Angels 7-4 Aug. 11, beat them again 2-1 Sept. 2, and again 9-4 Sept. 27 in Anaheim. That was his last start and Tuesday will be his last start of the season.

A native of Tokyo, the 6-3, 190-pound Iwakuma signed with the Mariners as a free agent Jan. 5, following an 11-year career in his native country. Iwakuma pitched for Osaka Kintetsu from 2001-04, and for Rakuten from 2005-11. His record was 107-69, 3.25 ERA.

In 2004, Iwakuma started out 12-0 en route to a 15-2 record and 3.45 ERA. He had his only 20-win season in 2008 when he went 21-4, 1.87 ERA in 28 starts. Iwakuma won Japan’s equivalent of the Cy Young award.

In 2008, Iwakuma was named the Pacific League Most Valuable Player and also named an NPB All-Star.

Iwakuma played in the 2004 Olympics and in the 2009 World Baseball Classic, where he won a gold medal.

Iwakuma has pitched at least 5.0 innings in all nine of his starts and has worked at least 7.0 in two of his past three. He also has two saves, May 30 at Texas and June 2 at Chicago.

Iwakuma continues to allow plenty of baserunners, but is proving to be a master at getting out of jams. The Mariners have won four of the right-hander’s past six starts.

Haren threw a complete-game shutout against the Mariners May 24 at Safeco Field, lost to Seattle 7-4 Aug. 11, beat the Mariners 9-1 Aug. 31, and lost to Seattle 9-4 in Anaheim Sept. 27.

Haren pitched in the St. Louis system for two years and made his major league debut June 30, 2003, taking a 5-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants. He allowed two runs on seven hits in 6.0 innings.

Haren had a 6-10 MLB record when the Cardinals, on Dec. 18, 2004, traded him, along with Daric Barton and Kiko Calero to the Oakland Athletics for Mark Mulder.

Haren pitched for the Athletics from 2005-07, producing his bet season in 2007 when he won 15 games. On Dec. 4, 2007, the Athletics traded Haren, along with Connor Robertson, to the Arizona Diamondbacks for Brett Anderson, Chris Carter, Aaron Cunningham, Dana Eveland and Carlos Gonzalez and Greg Smith.

Haren pitched for three years in Arizona, his best year coming in 2008 when he won 16 and lost eight.

The Diamondbacks traded Haren to the Los Angeles Angels July 25, 2010.

Haren is a three-time All-Star (2007-09) and finished fifth in the 2009 Cy Young voting. Haren has a career record of 119-96, 3.66 ERA.

Hernandez recorded 12 strikeouts in throwing the third no-hitter in franchise history . . . Mariners became the first team in MLB history to throw a perfect game and have one thrown against them. It was also the first time two have been thrown in the same stadium in one season . . . Of the 22 previous perfect games, six were by 1-0 scores, the last by Roy Halladay May 29, 2010 at Florida. It was also the fourth 1-0 win for the Mariners this season . . .Hernandez became the second Latin American pitcher to do the deed (Nicaragua's Dennis Martinez for Montreal July 28, 1991, against the Dodgers).
  • Sept. 18: Seattle's 18-inning, 4-2 loss to Baltimore at Safeco Field marked the second-longest home game in Mariners history and the longest -- 5:44 -- in terms of time since a 5:47 marathon at Texas in June 2004.
