ANAHEIM, Calif. – Efren Navarro singled home a run with two outs in the 16th inning on Friday night, and the Los Angeles Angels came out of the All-Star break with a 3-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners.

Dominic Leone (2-2), the eighth Mariners pitcher, gave up a one-out double to All-Star MVP Mike Trout in the 16th and intentionally walked Josh Hamilton with two out after a come-backer by Albert Pujols. Herrera batted for John McDonald and stroked the first pitch up the middle to bring home Trout.

Hector Santiago (2-7), the ninth Angels pitcher, allowed one hit over 21/3 innings to get the victory.

Angels get Street

In a trade announced late Friday night, the Angels acquired All-Star closer Huston Street and prospect Trevor Gott from the San Diego Padres for minor leaguers Taylor Lindsey, R.J. Alvarez, Jose Rondon and Elliot Morris.

The 30-year-old Street (1-0) has 24 saves in 25 opportunities and a 1.09 ERA in 33 games this season.

In 10 major league seasons with Oakland (2005-08), Colorado (2009-11) and San Diego (2012-14), Street is 35-27 with 258 saves and a 2.87 ERA.

He has converted 109 of his last 117 save chances.
