Los Angeles Angel Chris Nelson, right, is congratulated by Josh Hamilton after Nelson hit a home run on Friday in Seattle.

 

SEATTLE (AP) — Chris Nelson hit a two-run homer off Felix Hernandez and the Los Angeles Angels ruined Eric Wedge's return to the dugout with a 2-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night.

Wedge managed the Mariners for the first time since he had a mild stroke a month ago. He acknowledged being anxious about getting back on the bench and called his ailment "a heads up."

Garrett Richards (4-5) allowed four hits in 7 1-3 innings and two relievers finished the five-hitter for Los Angeles.

Nelson snapped an 0-for-17 slide when he connected in the second for his third homer. Josh Hamilton scored on Nelson's long ball after leading off the inning with a single, and it was the only time Hernandez (12-7) was touched all night.
