ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Seattle Mariners are still going with a bullpen-by-committee and it worked out perfectly Tuesday night — except for one minor flaw that Kendrys Morales overcame with a clutch hit against his former team. Morales hit an RBI single in the 10th inning, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 3-2 victory against the Los Angeles Angels. It was only the third RBI for Morales in 30 at-bats against the Angels since he was traded to the Mariners in December for pitcher Jason Vargas. Charlie Furbush (1-3) faced only one batter to get the victory, striking out Josh Hamilton with runners at first and second to end the ninth. Rookie Yoervis Medina got three outs for his first major league save. Hamilton grounded into a double play his first three times up and struck out his next two at-bats. The 2010 AL MVP, who signed a five-year, $125 million contract in December, is batting .213 with 10 homers and 24 RBIs in 69 games. "Its hard for me to tell why hes struggling because Ive only faced him a handful of times," Furbush said. "He just working through whatever hes working through to try to get back to the big power numbers that hes had in the past." "I just try to do the things Ive got to do to make myself successful." Kyle Seager sparked the winning rally with a two-out double in the 10th against Garrett Richards (2-4). Morales, who struck out his previous three times up, then lined a 3-2 pitch off the glove of shortstop Erick Aybar to give Seattle the lead. Seattle grabbed a 2-0 lead on consecutive homers by Raul Ibanez and Justin Smoak in the second inning against Joe Blanton. But Mark Trumbo connected in the bottom half, and Albert Pujols tied it with a leadoff drive against Tom Wilhelmsen in the eighth. "There were a couple of guys in the bullpen we wanted to try and stay away from, and Tommy was the guy to go to right there," said manager Eric Wedge said, who got 16 saves from Wilhelmsen in 20 opportunities before removing him from that role. "It was a fresh inning, and we had to send him out there for the next inning, too. We were planning on saving Medina to close, so we couldnt go to him right there." Jeremy Bonderman pitched six innings of six-hit ball and Oliver Perez got three outs before Wilhelmsen yielded Pujols 12th homer on an 0-1 pitch. Until then, right-handed batters were only 5 for 48 against Wilhelmsen, who had not allowed a home run this season in 29 1-3 innings. The 30-year-old Bonderman, who missed the previous two seasons due to injuries and Tommy John surgery, is 1-0 with a sparkling 0.90 ERA over 20 innings covering his last three starts. The Mariners signed him to a minor league contract in January. "When you look at the physical shape hes in and how hard hes worked to come back, it was a good guy to give an opportunity to — and it was worth it," Wedge said. The Angels, who outscored Seattle 30-4 in the previous three meetings, got their first run when Trumbo drove Bondermans first pitch of the second into the rock pile in left-centre for his team-high 16th homer and first since June 1. It ended Bondermans streak of 14 consecutive scoreless innings, equaling his career best from 2007 with Detroit. Blanton gave up six hits in 6 2-3 innings and tied a career high with 11 strikeouts, following an eight-day stretch between starts to work with pitching coach Mike Butcher on his fastball command. Blanton, whose no-decision left him at 1-10, still shares the major league lead in losses with former Philadelphia Phillies teammate Cole Hamels. He has a 5.62 ERA in his first 14 starts with the Angels after signing a two-year, $15 million contract in December, and has surrendered giving seven home runs during his last four starts. "Throwing strikes is one thing, and commanding the zone is another," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Joe has the ability to throw strikes. Its just making that quality pitch in a good zone that has kind of waivered a little bit in his game, and thats when hes had trouble." Ibanez led off the second with his 14th homer. Smoak, who came off the disabled list Tuesday after missing 18 games because of an oblique strain on his right side, drove the next pitch to right field for his fourth of the season. "It was nice to come back and pop one on the first swing," Smoak said. "I figured hed try to get ahead. He left a fastball in the middle and I put a good swing on it." Smoaks drive landed in the first row above the 18-foot right field wall. Angels manager Mike Scioscia came out to suggest fan interference to the umpires, but the ruling was upheld after a video replay. NOTES: It was only the second time in 806 major league games that Hamilton grounded into more than one double play. He did it twice on June 18, 2010, with Texas at Boston. ... Ibanez has hit safely in his last 13 games at Angel Stadium — one off his career best streak at this ballpark. His first career homer off Blanton came in his 50th at-bat against him. ... The Angels have scored no more than three runs in any of Blantons last 10 starts while he was still in the game. ... The Angels have played in a major league-high 26 games that were decided by a one-run margin (10-16). ... The Mariners have hit 49 home runs on the road, compared to 29 at Safeco Field. ... Mariners reserve 1B Alex Liddi was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma to make room on the roster for Smoak. Authentic Justin Reid Jersey .S.

When we think yogi -- especially in the western-world -- an image of a lithe white woman in warrior pose position typically comes to mind. The clichéd yoga body portrayed in mass media is limited and oftentimes discouraging for diverse audiences.But imagery isnt the only reason why many women have yet to join the yoga bandwagon. Theres also the issue of cost. With its expensive equipment: mats, towels, straps, blocks and gear, it has inadvertently excluded legions of would-be practitioners due to their body size, skin color and lack of means.In all, typically yoga ... equals privilege.But change is on the horizon, and self-proclaimed fat femme yogi and North Carolina native Jessamyn Stanley, 29, hopes to bring yoga to all.After initially shying away from yoga in her teens due to it not seeming accessible to her as a plus-sized African-American woman, she revisited the practice in her early 20s as a means to battle depression at the request of a former classmate. In 2011, she began taking a deeper dive in to yoga and developed an appreciation for various styles. But it wasnt until 2013, when she began to expand her practice in the privacy and comfort of her own home, that she started reshaping her own perceptions of beauty and body image.She now credits yoga and meditation for allowing her to understand that unhappiness fuels the unrealistic beauty standards that haunt many of us. On a daily basis, she says, I make a commitment to stand above the noise of our society in order to see the inherent beauty of each and every being on this planet, myself included.And by the looks of her 240,000 Instagram followers, Stanley has successfully pushed through the body negativity clutter to reconstruct the image of the yoga world. I want people to understand that the strength of a yoga practice doesnt lie in a persons ability to [do a] handstand, buy coconut water, or afford expensive yoga products. Its about how you feel after.?But through Stanleys motivational social media presence and yoga instruction, she lovingly reminds her audience and students that life is full of challenges, and yoga is no different. Its hardcore for everybody, regardless of body type. But the lack of diverse representation -- with about?80 percent of yogis in the U.S. being white?--?and blatant size discrimination, the practice is still intimidating for many.While the social media world sees her as a hero, Stanley is reluctant to celebrate her Insta-fame until the greater modern yoga community welcomes plus-sized practitioners of all abilities. I am very keenly aware that my perspective and practice are still viewed with a tone of smugness by most of the modern yoga community. And furthermore, my success as a black, plus-sized practitioner is very abnorrmal on the scale of other larger bodied [yogis], particularly those of color, Stanley says.ddddddddddddIn general, she adds, size and color discrimination are very much the norm within the Western yoga community and the opportunities Ive been afforded are not indicative of larger scale change.The smugness Stanley speaks of isnt solely reserved for her size or skin color. It has also extended to a past method of using books instead of yoga blocks, or a dog leash in place of a yoga strap, due to lack of resources. Her choice of music while practicing is also divergent. Enter the majority of yoga studios anywhere in the world, and youre likely to transition from one posture to the next while listening to soothing, ambient sounds of water flowing or chanting. But Stanley craves something different from the norm.For Stanley, yoga is about mindful intention-setting. And shes most successful at doing so while listening to Compton rapper and activist Kendrick Lamars inspirational works. For most, Lamar would be an odd musical selection for a yoga session. But for her, a southern African-American woman working within a predominantly?white industry, Lamars lyrics about black experiences and social injustices help get her in a zone.Its this idea of celebrating individuality and self-acceptance that Stanley hopes to convey through her practice. The yogic path has nothing to do with size, age, color, wealth, or physical ability, she added. These freeing ideologies make Stanley comfortable in baring her body to her blog and social media followers.When scrolling Stanleys various timelines, readers are met with images of her strong, curvy frame nailing the standing bow posture in nothing more than a bra and panties. Which has coalesced her into being a body-positivity role model of sorts -- a title she didnt seek, but humbly accepts. [I thank my] fellow non-stereotypical yoga practitioners [for helping] create the rainbow-hued community that the world truly deserves.A community shed like to see embraced by yoga teachers, studio owners, media outlets, business owners and students alike, to achieve a safe and inclusive space for all body types and people of color -- with a focus on feeling good, rather than looking good. A community shes willing to build and guide, adding, For many of us, the pursuit of yogic bliss is really just a genuine journey towards self-acceptance, and I think my yoga practice is living proof of that path.Shana Renee is the founder and editor-in-chief of?All Sports Everything?and a passionate New York Jets, Knicks and Yankees fan.
